Donor Recognition

In appreciation of the substantial support of our donors, the TDMH Foundation has established a Donor Recognition Program to acknowledge donations in an appropriate manner. The Program is designed to ensure consistent and timely recognition of donor contributions.

Donor recognition will be based on cumulative donations to the Foundation and donors have the opportunity to move up through the various recognition levels as their giving total increases.

All donors will receive, in a timely manner, a personalized letter of thanks following receipt of their donations.  The Foundation will advise donors of recognition opportunities, specifically the use of their names, prior to any public recognition.

Recognition opportunities may include:

  • Thank you letter and cards
  • Donor Recognition Wall (donations totalling $1,000 or more)
  • Phone call and personal thanks
  • Photo opportunity in local press
  • Naming Opportunities
  • Feature article in newsletter and/or website profile
  • Invitations to special events
  • Published donor and In Memoriam lists
  • Hospital tour

Donor Recognition Wall

Donors who contribute an accumulative amount of $1,000 or more to the Foundation are eligible for recognition on the Donor Recognition Wall.  This includes annual donations, In Memoriam donations, pledges, and legacy gifts such as estate bequests and life insurance policies.  The Donor Wall is updated annually to reflect donations made during that year.
