THE DONOR SIGNS MISSION
Our mission is to create aesthetically pleasing donor recognition solutions that are functional, efficient, and cost effective. Our aim is to instantly prove how much you appreciate each and every person who contributes to your organization’s mission.
A SIMPLE HISTORY
Donor Signs is simple. We help non-profit organizations large and small to show their appreciation for contributor donations. Every dollar donated moves your mission forward and multiplies your impact on the world. To help ensure you earn future donations, it is useful to recognize donors of the past. Donor Signs helps you do exactly that through tailored, high-quality, donor recognition walls and plaques.
Over time, we’ve made the order process effortless and accessible to anyone regardless of location or budget. Our clients range from small non-profits who want to recognize a single donor, to large hospitals and universities that needed multiple donor walls and hundreds of plaques for their many generous supporters.
Our founder, Dick Nicolson, has over 20 years of experience designing and implementing donor recognition systems. Mr. Nicolson is an Environmental Graphic Designer by trade and serves as Donor Signs, Inc’s Creative Director which allows us to maintain a heavy focus on design.
In order to serve you better, Donor Signs offers pre-designed donor recognition systems that give you a diverse selection of recognition options to choose from. In the event you don’t find something that suits your organization, we can also plan, design, and implement custom solutions just for you.
Our in-house team includes experts in design, planning, and fabrication for hospitals, schools, universities, cultural organizations, and even religious institutions. Even if your organization isn’t among those listed above, we can still help you out. Just give us a call. We’re happy to work with you to honor your supporters.
“Quality is not an act, it is a habit.”
