Digital vs Static Donor Boards: Which is Better?

Static donor boards might be simple and easy, but are they eye-catching enough to cut it in today’s age and beyond? If you want to be competitive, relevant, and modern, the short answer is no.

Static boards aren’t without their advantages— they’re usually easier to maintain, they require less oversight, and they’re comparatively inexpensive depending on the type.

However, the advantages of digital donor boards over traditional donor recognition walls are numerous and clear. They are more effective in how they present dynamic, eye-catching content. They’re bright, versatile, high-tech, and impressive.

Static donor boards can be decorative and attractive, but what matters is getting the message across as effectively as possible. Digital screens allow for unmatched flexibility.

For example, around the holiday season, donor boards can be customized to incorporate the holiday spirit. Not only that, they can be edited, added to, or adjusted in any way you see fit—at any time. With a cloud-based CMS (content management system), you can access and make immediate changes to your donor board content.
