While developing the Hinman Building capital campaign, particular focus was placed upon delivering added value to donors. Community support of the MAFB mission through personalizing a Building Brick provides a unique means of ultimately receiving tangible recognition of that support, which will last. The community will quite literally be added to MAFB’s future and a donor’s generosity will be recognized as patrons, employees, volunteers and supporters enter our new E. Parke Hinman, III Building.
Capital Campaign Provides Visible, Lasting Recognition
All information in support of personalizing a Building Brick is available here - or by clicking on the brick logo on virtually every page of the MAFB web site. Corporate logos require an additional step of verifying trademark rights, but the entire process is direct and supported by customer service professionals to answer any of your questions.
