GWD have helped charities reach over £1 Million in donations through our Donation Station devices!

GWD are excited to announce their achievement of reaching £1million in donations, taken through their interactive donation devices, along with a record month of donations in April, which has exceeded all records since entering the market in 2018.

Pioneering unmanned contactless donation devices beyond a single transaction journey, charities and socially-minded organisations benefit from touch-screen intuitive tech to gather vital fundraising data and donations.

Where next for contactless technology?

Touchscreen technology is always evolving, and GWD have started helping charities benefit from the experiential design active in retail and payment technology industries.

Offering charities the chance to catch a supporter’s attention for longer, influence the choices people make when donating, and leave a lasting impression of their cause through contactless fundraising.

“We help charities and organisations who want to support their communities better, to capture donations and build data that enhances their causes and project aims.”

“It’s incredible to consider, despite the cost-of-living crisis, peoples’ generosity is self-evident. Beating our own forecasts by a month, we can see charities are benefiting from a growth in giving.”

– Marek Narkiewicz, CEO

Attract Loop

Part of the Donation Station’s key visual design features, the Attract Loop are screensavers purposefully designed to run on a loop. Created by GWD with your input, they use visuals or photography, plus an emotive call to action, to catch the donors interest and lead them towards donation through interactive storytelling.


The entire Donation Station is open to branding, from external display to on-screen logos, photography and your brand look and feel.

Our design support service can adapt visuals and graphics to suit your brand.

Wifi or 4G/5G Data SIM

Where you need it, the Donation Station can be supplied with Data or Wifi connectivity.

If using the device in a remote location or at an event, it’s worth considering the signal strength available – GWD can support you to ensure there’s a smooth running operation on the day.

Safe & Secure

All data is transmitted with full encryption, so you can be sure that all individual donor data is safely used, in accordance with GDPR regulations.

Choice of Donations

Giving choice on where the donor wants their money to be spent empowers them further. The Donation Station asks this question and gives charities freedom to present their causes and activities as separate campaigns.

Gift Aid Up Sell

An integrated Gift Aid function on all Donation Stations helps boost fundraising a further 25%. This tax relief can be claimed from HRMC from any donor that supplies their contact details and makes a declaration, as a UK tax payer. The Donation Station is designed to encourage and secure this additional fundraising income easily, through simple reports that can be downloaded and submitted to HMRC as part of a Gift Aid claim.
