“Three things above all else stand out in the work you have done for Queen's: ability to capture client needs, ability to work successfully with a variety of academic and non-academic groups, and the ability to create beautiful, functional pieces that are unique to their space. Each has delighted the audience for whom they were intended."
Executive Director, Alumni Relations and Annual Giving,
Queen's University, Kingston
“Presidential's presentation was head over heals better than the other companies, showing that they had done a great deal of research about our school and truly understood the sort of recognition program that BSS was looking for… the entire Presidential Environment team was professional, creative, responsive to our needs and timelines, and very flexible.”

“Presidential's keen eye for unique design opportunities, their ability to create individualized donor recognition components for their clients is well-known among many of Toronto's non-profit organizations… excels in providing the consistent and attentive customer service… excellent ideas, competitive prices and (they) deliver on time and within budget.”
“It all looks wonderful - the Wall is impressive with its classic, simple design. Thank you for all that you did to satisfy our needs and still meet our deadline. The final touch was rushing the (missed) plaque the day before the event - amazing customer service! It was a pleasure working with Presidential on this important project for Queen's School of Business.”
“We come to Presidential not so much for a supplier, but for an effective partnership. There is confidence in the quality of the ideas you will bring forward, and the tastefulnesss with which they will be executed. You bring us good council and advice.”
Dr. Jon Dellandrea,
Former Vice-President & Chief Development Officer,

PhilanthroMining includes a comprehensive survey and audit of all organizational recognition. During the fulsome audit process, we carefully annotate locations and condition; record all recognition copy and dedications; note materials; photograph each item; and provide annotated floorplans to pinpoint specific locations.
The resulting report also includes significant findings – basic outlining of state of recognition, with mention of needed actions; reference items that are grandfathered (exempted) from established recognition standards; and provide an up-to-date listing of available recognition opportunities, for use in donor cultivation and recognition efforts.
The amalgam of comprehensive information is provided in a format compatible with your own donor management system, so doesn’t require proprietary software.
• All donor recognition data is held in a single comprehensive repository
• Detailed recognition information, including notes, recognition wording, locations, condition and photo references
• Searchable archive of historical donor records, which can be used to mine for opportunities and connections to current donors
• Exportable data in Excel or Access format, without need for proprietary software
• Optional analysis of your stewardship, cultivation and engagement opportunities, undertaken by a veteran CFRE-accredited fundraiser, resulting in recommendations tailored to your specific situation.
Recognition Harmonization: As a supplement to a recognition audit, we can detail means by which to integrate different periods of recognition, to connect them visually through unifying features. Harmonization elevates your organization’s recognition, and can also provide opportunities to reach out to past supporters anew, to meaningfully engage them when unveiling updated or new recognition, or retiring historic items.
Engagement Strategy & Products: Our CFRE-accredited philanthropy expert is available to consult on how you can advance key goals through development of a personalized donor engagement plan connected to your recognition efforts, which will result in help to engage and steward your donors, based on specific organizational history, situation and needs.
Recognition Policy Development: Smooth operations require clear goals and mandates, something we can help you develop by updating an existing or developing an initial comprehensive donor recognition policy for your organization.
PhilanthroMining can create a complete accessible donor-centric record of recognition
