Donor Recognition

The Reh-Fit Centre views private funding as an important component in the achievement of building community wellness. Recognition of donors and volunteers is important because of the vital role they play in the Reh-Fit Centre. All forms of recognition will be provided within the spirit of the Centre’s mission and will be respectful of donor’s wishes.
  • Recognition will be provided to donors, with their permission
  • Donors who choose to remain anonymous may do so
  • Recognition will be provided for outright, in-kind, and planned gifts

Depending on the giving level, donor recognition will be provided, such as:

  • Donations of 10,000+ (cumulative since 2004) are acknowledged on our beautiful donor wall
  • Recognition in our newsletter, FitNotes, in the annual report, and on the website
  • Invitation to special education sessions and/or events
  • Other donations may be recognized in various Reh-Fit publications depending on the donor’s wishes.

The Donor Wall* is on the second floor of the Centre, immediately across from the Heart Rock Café and members’ lounge. This stunning curved wall of glass, updated annually, is a unique symbol of thanks and an enduring tribute to the generosity of our major donors and to loved ones receiving a dedication.

*The Donor Wall was designed by Warren Carther, a Winnipeger, who is considered one of the world’s leading architectural glass artists.He was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 2002 and has received Royal Canadian Academy of Arts designation for outstanding achievements in the visual arts.

Warren Carther’s projects are unprecedented in colour, innovative technique, and scale. Notable glass walls he has designed include the carved glass wall for the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo, the 100-foot glass wall in Charles de Gaulle Airport, Paris, and the 160-foot-long glass wall in the Yellowknife legislative assembly.

Mr. Carther, who works out of a studio in the Exchange district, also designed the donor wall at the Riverview Health Centre.
