Integrate Gift Aid Into Fundraising With The Donation Station

banner showing the words put down the pen and paper

The Donation Station is designed to integrate Gift Aid into your digital fundraising activities

Gift Aid is a valuable additional funding stream for charities, from the UK Government. As a form of tax relief, for any applicable donations by UK tax payers, any charities and community amateur sports clubs can claim an extra 25p for every £1 given in donations. Learn more about our initiatives in charity fundraising sectors. 

Usually, each charity need to ask donors to fill in either on paper or by electronic form, a Gift Aid declaration, which is then collated manually on a regular basis and submitted to HMRC.

Why use digital donation devices for Gift Aid?

We have a deep knowledge of how to use digital donation devices for Gift Aid, and have a comprehensive Gift Aid guide for fundraisers and CSR Policy developers.

Our team have designed a donation device that streamlines the administration process. When choosing your User Interface design, together with our experts, we can ‘enable’ our Gift Aid feature.

Our unique software captures and collates all the key data required by HMRC when submitting a Gift Aid claim. In the GWD Customer Portal, as a Donation Station owner, you can see all donor details, including the declarations, critical to every submission. 

This is available in a downloadable spreadsheet, that can easily be attached to your charity’s correspondence with HMRC.

Designed to be intuitive and easy for donors to navigate, the Donation Station is made to be a simple device to use and grow fundraising revenue with.

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.
