Commemorative Entry Plaza
Your heart will be touched when you take a stroll around the Commemorative Entry Plaza located at the San Diego Blood Bank’s new headquarters and main donor center. Surrounded by tropical landscaping, beautiful in any season, are personalized tiles and bricks, with many more available, engraved in memory of loved ones and in honor of those living. The tiles and bricks are deeply etched with a protected inscription and make a perfect gift.
A donor making a gift of between $200 and $5,000 will have a choice among various sizes of personalized bricks and wall tiles to be placed in the Entry Plaza. Donations between $100 and $199 will scroll your name for one year on an electronic Distinguished Donor Digital Wall prominently displayed inside the main donor center.
Call or log on for the details on how your donation will be recognized with a personalized tile or brick that will be permanently incorporated into the most public area of our new headquarters.
