There is no dearth of options when it comes to choosing donor wall designs. But you might not be aware that there is a different type of donor wall you can get for your organization: a virtual donor wall. As the name shows, the wall is there but it’s virtual. Given that the technology to set up and maintain a virtual donor wall is easily available, there is no reason for you not to consider getting one. In fact, there are some good reasons for you to do so. Let’s go over some of them:
A virtual donor wall will take up less space than a traditional one. You don’t need to have the entire structure built. This is perfect for locations where space is limited. Just because you don’t have the space to accommodate a donor wall doesn’t mean you give up the option to recognize and appreciate your donors. You can do so with a virtual donor wall. Even if you have plenty of space, why use it all?
Getting the information you want to display on to a virtual donor wall is easy. There are data integration solutions available you can use for it. The names of the donors and any other data can easily be added as well as changed should the need arise in the future. Adding names of future donors shouldn’t be too much of a hassle either.
The digital signage technology used for virtual donor walls is easily accessible and cost-effective. There is a perception that the modern digital technology for donor walls is expensive but it’s not. In any case, you don’t have to purchase it. The vendor will look after the wall for you. Even if you want to acquire the technology, you won’t have to spend too much money on it.
Last, but not the least, you don’t need any special training or education to learn how to work a virtual donor wall. It isn’t as if you have to learn about a new technology from scratch in order to use it properly. This way, you can learn how to update the wall and also keep it in working order. Moreover, you can delegate this task by training any of the members of your staff.
These are some of the foremost reasons why you should consider getting a virtual donor wall.
