Our Story

40 years of INSPIRING donors

For more than 40 years, BrookGlobal has been a family-owned business. The company was born in architectural signage and evolved into donor recognition systems for hospitals and universities in the 1980s.

Twenty years later, we strengthened our commitment to improving philanthropy, and in 2014 we pioneered a paradigm shift to engagement systems that have become game-changers for our  partners. These engagement systems are exquisitely beautiful, highly effective, and easily updatable to continue recognizing and inspiring donors.

However, they are so much more.

Keep reading to learn more about our rich history.

 

Integral to these engagement systems is a close working relationship with our client partners to create strategic, holistic, and integrated communication plans for use throughout their organizations’s physical settings and across all communication channels. Our expertise and experience enables us to assist partners in inspiring donors – and all stakeholders – to achieve the ultimate goal of making lives better.
