Recognizing Your Donations

The Aberdeen Health Foundation publishes a report to inform the public and our donors of their gifts at work and to show accountability by disclosing our audited financial statements. However, the publication does not specifically name donors who have made gifts. We also recognize certain donors by putting their names on special walls at various locations within the Aberdeen Hospital. The Donor Wall recognizes donors by name in relation to specific donation category levels.
