Raise the Bell – Live the Legacy Program
Our “Raise the Bell – Live the Legacy” program recognizes donors for ongoing support of the Homme Home Foundation and its programs.
The Bell Program was created by the Homme Home Foundation Board of directors, who felt that it was important to create a way to recognize and thank those who keep the Homme mission and vision alive through their generosity.
Each year since January of 2007, donors contribution $125 or more during the calendar year will be recognized with a “bell” on the donor wall. When total accumulated giving reaches a new Donor Level, a new bell recognizing the donor’s total cumulative giving is added to the wall. The old bell is returned to the donor as a thank you for supporting the Foundation.
Rules and Restrictions
Gifts given through the annual Angel Appeal, golf outing, special events/projects, etc. are all considered when establishing your cumulative giving level.
Gifts Memorializing Loved Ones: Donor wishing to memorialize a loved one through the “Raise the Bell” program must make a donation at the designated levels for the bell they desire. The inscription on the bell will recognize both the donor and the individual to be memorialized or honored. This donation will not be included in the donor’s cumulative giving total, however, as a gift cannot be recognized than once.
Donations given in memory and/or honor of a friend or loved one that do not result in bell recognition will be counted in the donor’s cumulative gifting total.
Matching funds through a donor’s employer and/or fraternal organization will be included in the individual’s cumulative giving totals.
Business Recognition: Many area business play an important role in supporting Homme Foundation programs as well, and their contributions also will be recognized on the donor wall with a bell. Businesses that make a monetary contribution and do not receive any promotional advertising for that donation will be recognized following the same guidelines as individual donors.
