Donor Recognition at The Hebrew University
Canadian Friends of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and The Hebrew University of Jerusalem are honoured to recognize the dedicated philanthropic efforts of Canadian visionaries, families, foundations and corporations whose support continues to benefit the university and the State of Israel. Donors to CFHU have their deeply valued gifts recognized in a variety of ways on Hebrew University’s majestic Mount Scopus campus in Jerusalem.
CFHU would be honoured to schedule a dedication ceremony in accordance with the donor’s wishes, although most new inscriptions are dedicated during the annual International Board of Governors Meeting in June.
|Wall of Benefactors|
|Wall of Life|
|The Wall of Life is located at the southeastern tip of the Mount Scopus campus, overlooking the Old City and West Jerusalem. Inscribed on this wall are the names of the donors (or any other names, in accordance with the donors’ wishes) and the state the donor resides in (if American), or the country the donor resides in (for all non-American donors). Wall of Life recognition is given for donations of US$100,000 - US$999,999 earmarked for scholarships or research but not physical facilities.|
|Wall of Trustees|
|The Wall of Trustees is located in the Mount Scopus Forum on the wall closest to the outdoor pedestrian exit in the direction of the Faculty of Social Sciences, and on the wall adjacent to the passage leading to the Faculty of Law. Inscribed on this wall are the names of the donors, or any other name of his/her choosing; states, countries, etc. This wall recognizes donations of US$50,000 - US$99,999 for scholarships or research not physical facilities.|
|The Founders’ Wall located in the Mount Scopus Forum on the large wall facing the courtyard between the Bloomfield Library and the Faculty of Humanities. Inscribed on this wall are the names of the donors, or any other name of his/her choosing; states, countries, etc. This wall recognizes donations of US$25,000 - US$50,000 for scholarships or research not physical facilities.|
|Wall of Endowed Chairs|
|The Wall of Endowed Chairs is located in the Mount Scopus Forum adjacent to the entrance to the Administration Building. Listed are all professorial chairs at the Hebrew University, with the name of the chair and donor, country and date of establishment. A new section was recently added adjacent to the first section.|
|Plaques for endowed physical facilities are almost always located on, near, or in the vicinity of the facility that has been named. The size, location and style of the plaque depend upon the facility itself. A plaque for the donation of a garden might be a large engraved stone, while donor recognition for an entire building could take the form of the donor’s name engraved on the outside wall of the building. Plaques for lectures halls and rooms are usually placed in the corridor outside the facility.|
