Sky Design (San Francisco) created a new donor recognition installation for the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco have been offering safe places for kids to grow since 1891. The organization wanted to create a unique donor recognition element to mark the end of its latest 10-year campaign and thank supporters. The installation is in the entryway to the new Don Fisher Clubhouse (named after the Gap Inc. founder and stalwart Boys & Girls Club supporter), which serves 2,000 youth each year.
Sky Design conceived a "bookshelf" lined with wooden blocks representing books, each laser-engraved with the names of major donors. Working with fabricator Monster Route, Sky Design was able to use wood from a fallen redwood tree at one of the club's campgrounds. Donor levels are indicated by the size of the "books."
