The fabulous donor wall designed for us by Award & Sign has provided more than recognition; it has created magic for our children’s foundation.
The magic begins when you walk into the offices of the Listen Foundation. The beautiful floor to ceiling donor wall is the first thing someone sees. Guests are impressed. Donors feel acknowledged. Volunteers experience connection. Board members are inspired. Pride resonates, together with a clear understanding of who we are.
When we re-branded the Listen Foundation two years ago, our motivation was to expand and become better recognized in order to help more deaf/hard of hearing children in Colorado. Our challenge was in figuring out how to convey this change/evolution while making sure that everyone involved felt included. Your insightful recommendation was to create a donor wall.
The donor wall continues to create magic by being a catalyst in fostering our transition. When we see the wall, it evokes a distinct and elevated feeling about the organization as well as our involvement in it. As a result, it enhances our leadership perspective which influences our discussions and decisions.
Following is an example of how the donor wall has impacted how we see ourselves and influenced our decisions. After much discussion, we successfully launched our first signature fundraising event last year and almost tripled our goal! It was a magical experience. Our donor wall now features more names….new names too. Thanks to Award & Sign, we have a way to share our successes while reminding us of what we have accomplished as a team.
Evolution begins with seeing clearly who you are; envisioning where you want to be; and then having the people, talent and tools to get you there. The donor wall created by Award & Sign has become a guide post to the future for the Listen Foundation. It is a treasured reminder of our pathway and how far we have come.
We are so grateful to Award & Sign for offering this solution to our re-branding needs. Your company has been wonderful to work with: creative, timely, great customer service and exemplary follow up. Thank you!Vickie

We’re on our 7th year of ordering Plaque Magic for each of our centers. Not only has Award & Sign always come to us with creative and innovative design for the plaques, they’ve produced and coordinated the delivery of 300 to 500 each year with efficiency and speed.
As a company with front-facing team members spread throughout the nation, we have seen a jump in motivation, productivity, and employee-buy in when we put this visible and customized recognition in each center. Recognition can be timely, effective, and personal. It never feels like an afterthought, and since we know we have the best team in the business it pays in real dividends when they work to the best of their ability knowing they’re appreciated. We’re looking forward to year 8 and beyond.Jeff Jenkins

I want you to know just how wonderful EVERYTHING looks! A MILLION thanks to you all!!Lydia
Wanted you to know people LOVE the shirt and awards. When the awards were pulled out today I heard more than one say – I remember those (meaning they remembered when plaques were the standard Pepsi Cup deal).
The accolades for both is well deserved. Thank you for your hard work.John Foust
