Purple Seal

An Emblem of Charitable Achievement in Community Building

ARK Proudly Introduces the Purple Seal!

ARK (Accessibility Renovations for Kids) knows first hand the impact of charitable works by individuals and businesses in the construction industry. Without these companies and trades people it would literally be impossible for us to Reshape Their World with ARK Home Accessibility Renovations for kids with mobility issues and their families. We cannot be more grateful for their generous contributions of time, expertise, materials and financial support.

ARK decided that it would be fitting to recognize these community builders in a way that would make their contributions clear to all. And so the Purple Seal was conceived!

What is the Purple Seal?

The Purple Seal is an emblem of charitable achievement. Focused around the incredible support ARK receives onsite during a renovation, the Purple Seal will be awarded to companies and individuals who contribute directly to an ARK project through on-site work, administrative duties related to a project or financial donations. .

Each Seal displays the name of the charity the donation was made to (ARK), the year of the project and the level of recognition earned by the recipient based on the estimated value of their contribution.

Vision

A world where individuals and companies are inspired to make ongoing impactful contributions to community projects.

Mission

To recognize individuals and businesses in the construction industry for their charitable contributions which assist in building our community through ARK projects and initiatives.

Why Is The Purple Seal Good For My Business? 

Once you are awarded a Purple Seal, display it with pride! We will be doing everything we can to make the public aware of the meaning of the Purple Seal. We hope one day soon that the generosity and community-minded spirit of those who have earned their Purple Seal is instantly recognizable.

ARK will reach out to all individuals, companies and organizations who are eligible for the Purple Seal to encourage them to display the seal on their company website, LinkedIn profile, email signatures, etc.  

How Do I Earn a Purple Seal?

Purple Seals are awarded to licenced companies and trades persons who have contributed or provided support to the onsite construction activities of a Purple Seal Project. 

For now, the only Purple Seal Projects are ARK Home Accessibility Renovations. We hope to expand this recognition program to other construction based charities in order to increase the recognition for those companies and individuals who have proven themselves true community builders.

The Purple Seal is issued to companies who have contributed to an ARK project.

The purple seal is to be awarded each year, with contributions to begin accumulating in the month of May.

The market value of the in-kind (material) donation or the hours of labour will be tracked by ARK, and the Purple Seals will be automatically awarded to those who qualify.

What Are the Different Levels of Purple Seal That Are Being Awarded?

There is a minimum commitment level required to earn a Purple Seal. There are also multiple levels of recognition to distinguish between those who donate, for example, one day’s labour, compared to those who donate a week’s worth of labour.

There are 3 statuses that will be awarded. Bronze, Silver and Gold.

 

Bronze Status

$1000-$2499

Silver Status

$2500 - $4999

Gold Status

$5000 and up

NOTE:

1) Should a company be close to reaching one of these goals, but is not quite over on a particular project, an internal decision will be made by the Purple Seal Committee to determine if moving up to the next tier is warranted (for recurring supporters of the charity, for example).

2) Contributions will be calculated based on quotes for goods and labour provided by companies.

3) In the absence of a formal quote, an average of $25.00 per hour will be applied to labour.

The First Ever Purple Seals!

January 2021 saw the beginning of the very first Purple Seal Project: an ARK Home Accessibility Renovation for ARK Kid, Andrea. For Andrea ARK developed an accessible bathroom in their basement and installed a chair lift for access. Construction began in January and concluded with the installation of a chair lift at the end of May. For further details, see ARK’s projects page.

ARK is delighted to award 12 different companies with the Purple Seal based on their contributions to Andrea’s ARK renovation project.
