Community hospitals are integral to the health of Canadians. And as your Ultimate Campaign has so clearly illustrated, when community members are cared for, they show their appreciation by making their philanthropic investments. That is a beautiful thing.

We would be so honoured to join with you in your project to celebrate the broad-based and wide-spread support you enjoy from the community you serve.

We applaud your vision to not just provide exceptional health care to your community, but to provide a world-class health experience.

The fact that you’ve built the first hospital in Vaughan and the first hospital in Ontario in 30 years speaks volumes to your commitment to the community. And the fact that your strategy includes creating the first smart hospital in Canada will go a long way to realizing your vision of ensuring that your leading health experts can create a health experience that is exceptional and closer to home.

It would be a privilege to join you in that vision through this project to commemorate your founding donors of $1,000 to $9,999 to the new Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital. Our goal would be to recognize these donors and show the impact of their gifts to inspire an even broader base of community involvement and investment in the future.

Thank you for the opportunity to respond to your Request for Proposal. We hope the following information is helpful as you choose your partner for this project. And we sincerely hope you conclude that BrookGlobal would be the optimal partner to join you in this mission.

The ultimate catalyst for philanthropy.



Your aspirations are inspiring to us, and we would be privileged to partner with you to make them come to life!

  • You want to celebrate the broad-based philanthropic investment your community is making in you by commemorating the founding donors of $1,000 to $9,999 who helped you build the first hospital in Vaughan and the first smart hospital in Canada.

  • You want to inspire, grow, and celebrate philanthropy at all levels, thus communicating the inclusive nature of philanthropy and inviting everyone in the community to be a part of creating amazing health experiences for the community.

  • You want to create an innovative and imaginative donor recognition and engagement solution that serves the needs of the Foundation for the next 10-plus years.

  • You want to illustrate the critical importance that philanthropy plays at Mackenzie Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital.

We would be privileged to join you in this mission and are committed to orchestrating a seamless process for you. In the next section, we describe the team that would be dedicated to making your success a reality.



For more than 40 years, BrookGlobal has been a family-owned business serving communities and organizations across North America to inspire philanthropy and improve lives. The company was born as an architectural signage firm and evolved into crafting 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.

In creating innovative engagement systems, BrookGlobal takes an evidence-based approach reinforced by deep experience and a broad knowledge base from everyone at #TeamBrook.

Our common denominator? Passion for inspiring philanthropic investment to impact more lives positively.

To orchestrate the success of your project, we would employ our tried-and-true methodology that we have used on hundreds of projects to ensure success.

This methodology begins with a Discovery Phase to ensure that we gain an understanding of your project’s primary objectives, aspirations, and challenges. The other three phases ensure that the entire project comes to a successful conclusion, on time and on budget. 

Our methodology has four phases. Each is briefly outlined below. To learn more about any phase, please click that box for a more in-depth description.

Our design team will generate digital artwork previews, so your stakeholders and donors can seamlessly make annotations, design requests, and ultimately approve the artwork for this donor recognition project.


Understanding Your Needs

  • Your project’s goals and aspirations 
  • Your fundraising program’s strategic objectives and aspirations 
  • Your decision-making process and key stakeholders you want to involve 
  • Your ideal timeline and budget 
  • Engineering knowledge for possible locations of donor recognition elements 


Ensuring Success

  • Affirm objectives and goals 
  • Develop a specific timeline for the project 
  • Develop tangible goals to benchmark project success 
  • Develop plans that speak to all stakeholders 

Developing Solutions

  • Utilize strategies to inform the design 
  • Orchestrate a creative design development process that engages all of your desired stakeholders 
  • Develop inspirational 3D flythrough presentations for key stakeholders, donors, or other audiences critical to philanthropy 
  • Create designs that optimally combine beauty, creativity, and function to ensure you have tools for the fundraising program 
  • Finalize overall design and content plan 


Bringing It All to Life

  • Fabricate and quality test all donor recognition items 
  • Work with Engineering, Operations and Facilities to coordinate and install your donor recognition project 
  • Post-installation content updates 



Designing beautiful, creative, and impactful donor recognition to honour your community of donors would be a process orchestrated collaboratively with you. We refer to that process as the design development process.

In this section, we provide a few illustrations to serve as examples of a potential starting point for our collaborative design development process.

The purpose of the Discovery Phase is to ensure that we understand the strategic objectives and aspirations you have for your department and how this particular project fits into those objectives. This ensures that everything we co-create with you is capable of being a tool to help drive the growth and awareness of the important work your department does.

The Discovery Phase concludes after we’ve drafted two working documents with you – Major Objectives of the Project and What Does Success Look Like? We review and affirm those documents in the next phase – the Strategy Phase. 


The Strategy Phase is when we take all we learned in the Discovery Phase and develop strategies to ensure success.  

In addition, we work with you to confirm your communication aspirations related to donor experience and philanthropic messaging, then use this knowledge to create strategies to impact the design of your donor recognition. This ensures that the design can most optimally communicate your appreciation of your philanthropic partners now and remain a relevant, impactful tool for years to come. 


The Design Phase is when your donor recognition project comes to life. It is in this phase that we work with you to make the transition from ideas and concepts that exist in our brains to actual drawings and illustrations that become real. 

We have enormous experience in orchestrating this process to produce a result that uniquely reflects you and your institution’s aspirations, hopes, and dreams. In addition, we ensure you end up with powerful tools to help drive and sustain growth in your fundraising program, speak to all audiences, enhance your philanthropic culture, and provide critical philanthropic messages you can migrate across all communication channels. 

Our design team will generate digital artwork previews so your stakeholders and donors can seamlessly make annotations, design requests, and ultimately approve the artwork for this donor recognition project.  


The Implementation Phase is exactly what the name implies. It is the phase when the donor recognition project is installed. We bring our vast construction and engineering experience to this process and can navigate any unforeseen challenges or last-minute changes needed by a client.  

Our attention to detail and commitment to quality ensure that your donor engagement centres are long-lasting tools for your fundraising program. We have received numerous accolades from hospital and university facility offices for our installers’ professionalism and capabilities.
