“The donor wall exceeded our expectations, and those of the architects, with a very artistic and fitting tribute to the people and companies that made the Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation possible. It was an intricate design that Sherrington Douglas executed beautifully. At our grand opening event, those who saw their name on the boxes were impressed, and that’s all we could hope for with an installation of such importance.”

“Dear Rob,

I want to thank you for your outstanding work on our donor recognition program at the new Niagara Health System St. Catharines hospital. We get compliments daily on our donor wall. It is understated, powerful and most of all, flexible.

I know our situation must have caused you some unique challenges. Even while we worked on the installation we were in the process of merging the Foundations that raise funds for NHS and fully expected to have a new identity in the near future.

This complicated our situation considerably and I want to thank you for more than the work on the wall. Your counsel, as we worked our way through a recognition program serving donors from seven different foundations, was invaluable. Your depth of experience was evident in our deliberations and you earned the trust of all parties. Sherrington Douglas was the glue that held our process together and I want to express sincere gratitude on behalf of everyone involved.

Sincerely,”

J.B. Michael Farrell
President and CEO
Niagara Health System Foundation


“ The donor board looks incredible. Thank you for your exceptional work on this project and we look forward to working with Sherrington Douglas again in the future. “

Andrew Meyer
Community Development Manager
Municipality of Strathroy-Caradoc


“ Originally chosen as the successful proponent for an RFP issued by Durham College Foundation for donor recognition, Sherrington Douglas was invited to work with my department on a number of other projects. Throughout all phases of these projects I’ve felt they’ve acted as a partner providing guidance and experience. The positive working atmosphere has produced enjoyable project experiences and attractive installations. I look forward to future opportunities to work together. “

“ Thank you to Rob and Steve for bringing this all to a successful conclusion. The recognition event went very well on Friday and everyone was impressed with the design and craftsmanship of the plaque. “

David Chambers
Associate vice president
Office of Development
Durham College


“ At our recent donor wall unveiling, donors expressed their delight and gratitude at being recognized in such a thoughtful, comprehensive way. Based on the positive response we received, our development officers have now changed their regular tour so they could conclude at the donor wall. So impressed are donor prospects, they are now giving higher donations to the University just to be part of the donor wall. Now that’s the kind of return on investment that keeps on giving. One we hope will inspire others for years to come. “

“As the President and CEO of the William Osler Health Centre Foundation it was my
pleasure to work with Rob Sherrington and his firm. “

“ Sherrington Douglas clearly understood the needs of our Foundation and provided us
designs that supported the requirements of our campaign. Specifically they helped us
with donor recognition walls and a major gift program that consisted of several
different elements. We had them work in both our Brampton and Etobicoke sites.
Sherrington Douglas was reliable and responsive. The displays that they designed and
built for us are still doing the organization proud. I will not hesitate to call on them
again when the need arises. “

Anne Randell
Past President & CEO
William Osler Health Centre Foundation


“ Our past three donor recognition walls were designed by Mr. Sherrington and he oversaw the installations.  With his expertise, we were guided to the best choices for the visual impact and the most financially savvy recognition pieces.  Many compliments have come our way from donors, staff and the public on the overall appeal of these walls. “

“ Working in a hospital requires strict compliance on several fronts.  Dealing with infection control, noise restrictions and high traffic areas were handled in a most professional manner. Sherrington Douglas has refined business standards that are timely, ethical and very professional.  They have been a pleasure to deal with during all of our transactions. “

Karen Scott
Development Coordinator


“ Complete service with thoughtful advice and innovative design represent our primary reasons for working with Sherrington Douglas. What pleases us most is the pride and acknowledgement we give to our donors with each recognition piece we unveil. Sherrington Douglas helps us to showcase our supporters in the superior way that is deserved.”

Jody Belford
William Osler Health System Foundation


“ Rob recommended a recognition system that fitted our needs and was affordable. He was patient with our staff and donors and delivered on time and on budget an excellent product.”

William Leacy
President & CEO York Central Hospital Foundation


“ I have known Rob for the better part of fifteen years in mostly hospital settings but also at the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Gatineau. He was always great to work with and did what he promised. Knew his product line very well and wasn’t afraid to express his opinion as to what would work even better than the initial ideas we presented.”
