Thank you for this opportunity to propose a donor recognition and engagement system for the Union Memorial Hospital.

We are inspired by your commitment to world-class healthcare that will transform lives through research and patient well-being.

Your philanthropic partners believe in that same vision. They also want to tackle some of the most significant challenges in healthcare, accelerate breakthroughs, and provide exceptional care today while pioneering tomorrow’s cures. Ultimately, you and your donors share the same dream – creating an environment of personalized, holistic, innovative, and renowned care.

Celebrating the philanthropic investment made by your philanthropic partners may be the primary purpose of your new donor wall (what we call a donor engagement center). Still, we know it can do so much more than that. Of course, it will celebrate philanthropy in a beautiful, meaningful, and inclusive manner, but it will also communicate the transformational impact of Union Memorial Hospital and will communicate the integral role that philanthropy plays in accelerating future healthcare breakthroughs.

As a fundraising and stewardship tool, your donor engagement center will help you retain donors, grow philanthropic revenue, engage critical stakeholder groups, and provide you with messages that can migrate across all your communication channels. All this results in the further enhancement of your philanthropic culture.

Thank you for the opportunity to propose on this exciting project. We hope the following information is helpful as you choose your partner in this project. And we sincerely hope you conclude that BrookGlobal is the optimal partner to join you in this mission.

Expertise and compassion



For more than 40 years, BrookGlobal has been a family-owned business. 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 to inspire donors, 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.



The health and safety of your patients and staff are of the utmost importance to us. All members of #TeamBrook, including contractors, are fully vaccinated and we agree to abide by whichever regulations are in place at the time of installation.

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.

  • Your decision-making process and key stakeholders you want to involve
  • Existing donor recognition elements and policies

  • Engineering knowledge for possible locations of donor recognition elements
  • You and your architect’s design themes and aspirations


Ensuring Success

  • Affirm objectives and goals
  • Finalize donor recognition strategy and/or strategies for individual donor engagement centres
  • Develop tangible goals to benchmark project success

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.


To see the design descriptions and highlights, please click the button below.



We know financial considerations are important, so we have provided budget ranges to give context to each of the illustrative concepts shown above. These ranges are preliminary. We would work with you in the Discovery Phase to determine final pricing based upon the final design and size, materials chosen, and digital content requirements for your donor engagement centre.

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 your project achieves as many strategic objectives as possible.

In addition, we work with you to confirm your aspirations related to viewer experience, then use this knowledge to create strategies to impact the design of your display. This ensures that the design can optimally communicate your appreciation of your donors nowand remain a relevant, impactful, philanthropic tool for years to come.


The Design Phase is when everything begins to take shape. It is in this phase that we work with you to make the transition from ideas and concepts to actual drawings, illustrations, or documents that become real.

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


The Implementation Phase is exactly what the name implies. It is the phase when the display is built, tested, and installed. We bring our vast construction and engineering experience to this process and can navigate unforeseen challenges or last-minute changes needed.

Our attention to detail and commitment to quality ensure that your display is a long-lasting tool for your department.
