Contactless donations to help Mosque fundraising

The Al-Huda Centre in Sheffield knew it needed to gain more income through donations, to help with its day-to-day running costs.

A slim device for everyday donations

The entrance space to many Mosques across the UK can often be a congested area during prayer times, especially on Fridays and Islamic holidays.

Adding a Slim Donation Station meant that Al-Huda benefits from a donation device with large-screen that doesn’t occupy any floor space, which is very much at a premium.

Discover how a contactless payment device could help increase donations for your organisation.

“The Donation Station has worked really well for the Masjid. We’ve increased our donations income significantly and hope to improve it even further with GWD’s support.”

How has Al-Huda used their Donation Station?

Al-Huda have made use of the Donation Station’s integrated Gift Aid declaration feature. Meaning anyone providing their details will help the Mosque claim that extra 25% on top of any donation made.

Adding multiple donation amounts on screen, and asking clearly for donations with colourful signage, together with the individual reports that each device offers means that this Mosque has grown its fundraising income significantly since Spring 2021 when the Donation Station was installed.

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.
