Who are Fundraising Everywhere?

Often charities are aware of the development and training their team needs to improve, but have no way to access it. That’s where Fundraising Everywhere comes in!

Founded by Nikki and Simon, this community based organisation offers charities a way to access valuable knowledge and resources. Based online, they have built an inclusive network of Third Sector voices, with regular events taking place through their website. Learn how communities like Fundraising Everywhere are enhancing charity fundraising sectors.

Discover all things Individual Giving

Their Individual Giving Conference, taking place this October, is a one-day event in which charities can sign up and attend the sessions that stick out to them. Available live and on demand, these sessions cover everything from faith based giving to boosting donations with AI to the mistakes we should avoid when designing a supporter journey. 

GWD are proud to sponsor the event, alongside many other brilliant organisations.

As well as sponsoring the event, we’re excited to host a session all about contactless donations! Giving us the opportunity to share our expertise and give charities the knowledge they need to boost supporter engagement through innovation.

Who?

Our Business Development Manager, Tom Presland , will be sharing his knowledge of the sector

What will we cover?

The Third Sector has been incredibly resilient these past few years given great uncertainty.  

An increasingly cashless society paired with economic difficulties across the UK, has meant face to face giving has suffered. Charities have adapted to survive by providing a range of inclusive giving solutions such as contactless donation devices, like the Donation Station.  

But is this enough to cope with an uncertain future? How can Third Sector organisations sustain and grow support for their cause in the next 5 years through innovation?  

The question is no longer ‘do we need contactless?’ but ‘how can we gain more from it?’  

The future lies in supporter relationships. 

So, in this session, we will discuss why you need to revolutionise your donation collection through ideas such as digital customisation, data capture and experiential giving in order to grow revenue and get a healthy return on investment. Explore further about contactless fundraising and how it can transform your charity. 

What will you learn?

Using examples from our work within the Third Sector, we will discuss the benefits and opportunities of contactless donations and how your organisation can use them to reignite supporter relationships.

We’ll breakdown the barriers you may be facing when it comes to tech and set out clear ways to improve your individual giving strategy. Ultimately, enhancing your supporter experience and boosting your donation intake! 

We will also share with you the latest feedback from our customers, highlighting what fundraisers need from contactless donation devices. These findings will help provide clarity on where to focus your efforts when investing in tech and the hidden benefits, such as data collection and branding opportunities, to look out for.

Three key takeaways

In our session, you will learn how innovative contactless technology works harder to: 

  • Create donation opportunities and encourage in-person fundraising 
  • Provide engaging, memorable and seamless donation experiences 
  • Forge meaningful donor relationships that lead to continued support 

We look forward to seeing you there!

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.

Customisation

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.
