Did you know, Culture Recovery Fund grants can be used for Donation Stations right now?

Round 1 of the Culture Recovery Fund has to be spent by March 31st 2021. GWD are actively engaged in helping a number of organisations fulfil their requirements for cashless donation products before the deadline We offer lots of flexibility in putting together your order, including pre-payment of monthly fees to accommodate the grant format.

As well as enabling organisations to survive right now, part of the fund’s aim was to make businesses Covid-secure in the future. Contactless payment devices and stations are an important way you can future-proof your funding and help to fulfil both of these objectives. Culture Recovery Fund grants can be used for Donation Stations to help with contactless fundraising without handling cash. They also remove the need for you to allocate staff to collecting donations where they are used. 

Since October 2020 when over £300,000,000 became available to Museums, Arts Venues and Heritage Sites to secure their future, many organisations have been placing orders with GWD. We continue to have stock and be able to fulfil those orders before the deadline date!

Head over to the Donation Station page and have a browse, or contact us and book a demo right away.

Donation Station Lite

Discover our latest range of contactless products

The Lite range features two of our most accessible products; the Pocket and the Express.

Built with simplicity in mind, these small-scale, portable devices are ideal for collecting donations on the go. 

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.
