Wall of Honor Campaign
Wall of Honor Policy
We appreciate every donation made to support the Friends of Ogden but certain donations qualify the Donor to be included on our “Wall of Honor” at The Ogden International School of Chicago, East campus.
LEVELS OF DONATION:
Sponsor: $1,000 - $2,499
Patron: $2,500 - $4,999
Benefactor: $5,000 - $9,999
Principal's Circle: $10,000 and above
Cash and in-kind contributions to Friends of Ogden in excess of $1,000 ("Qualified Donations") will receive recognition on the Ogden Wall of Honor (the "Wall") at the designated Level of Donation based on the total of Qualified Donations received. Qualified Donations are considered received when paid in full and if paid via personal check, when the check has been cleared with the bank. In the event goods or services are received in exchange for the contribution, only the amount paid in excess of the fair market value for such goods or services will be considered in determining Qualified Donations.
August 1 - July 31
The Level of Donation recognized each year on the Wall will be based on the total amount of Qualified Donations received from a donor between August 1 and July 31 of the subsequent year (the "Donation Cycle"). Donor names will be added to the Wall at the end of the Donation Cycle during the normal and customary annual update to the Wall, which is generally in August or September. Each donor that had Qualified Donations during the Donation Cycle will need to to complete a donor form to ensure the correct name is recognized on the Wall at the appropriate Level of Donation, as agreed to by Friends of Ogden.
We are grateful to all of our donors for their contributions.
