High-Tech Donor Board Shares the Whys

Posted: September 13, 2019

Not far from the NorthBay Way Wall is a brand new visual and interactive tribute to NorthBay Healthcare’s most loyal supporters: the donors who have, over the decades, shared the vision and determination to build and sustain a health care system that would provide top-flight health care for our friends, neighbors and family members here in Solano County.

“We’ve had donor recognition boards in the past but they were removed during the various renovations, so this was a great opportunity for us to have them consolidated all into one place, and updated in a very high-tech and user-friendly way,” noted Brett Johnson, president of NorthBay Healthcare Foundation.Ryan Pasco (right) shows the board to Heidi Campini (left) and Wendy Jackson.

NorthBay Healthcare Foundation’s Donor Board uses touchscreen technology to introduce viewers to the foundation’s mission and those who have shared it.

Viewers can hear donor stories, learn how and where their donations have supported the organization over the years, and see a current “Honor Roll” of supporters, ranging from those who have donated under a $100 to many thousands of dollars.

Some of the video tributes include Dream of a Lifetime recipient stories, for those who had an end-of-life wish fulfilled through this NorthBay Healthcare Foundation program that is supported by donations from the public.

Viewers can also tap on pages that illustrate some of the Foundation’s largest fundraising efforts, including the Golf Classic.

“We’re very grateful to Dan Fowler, senior designer for Business Developement, for his artistic influence; Annemarie Golz, Facilities Project & Development manager, for her ability to smooth through construction tangles; and Brian Irwin of Luminous for his knowledge of local history and willingness to track down wonderful images,” noted Susan Cianci, Foundation program coordinator/executive assistant. “Without their contributions this would have been a very difficult assignment to complete.”

The board was unveiled during the foundation’s exclusive event on Sept. 9, when guests also learned of Al and Patt Shaw’s major gift to NorthBay Healthcare Foundation.
