Donor Recognition – St. Coletta of Greater Washington

Donor Wall - Detail - St. Coletta

St Coletta of Greater Washington is a school for children and adults with intellectual disabilities located in SE Washington.

This donor wall features 6 inch deep ceramic columns framing the names of the people who made the building possible. Located in the waiting room opposite the front desk, it is visitors’ introduction to the school’s out-of-the-box approach. The inspiration for the recognition system came from the building, which was designed by Michael Graves.

Location: Washington, D.C.

The naming tiles were very popular.  After people saw the samples we had several individuals increase their donations to our capital campaign so they could have a tile. They have been incredibly durable, as well, given they are all over a very busy school building!
