The Donation Station by GWD is an integral part of fundraising for socially-minded organisations.
This digital device uses interactive storytelling and intuitive design to enhance the donor experience, creating a lasting impression of a fundraising cause and supporting organisation. 

Proven to improve income, the Donation Station harnesses contactless payment technology to boost donations and encourage future engagement.

Available in varied sizes to suit different locations, each can be customised with branding, graphics and an individual narrative. We’ve also integrated Gift Aid giving into the secure and robust design.

Contactless Donation Device

The Donation Station from GWD is an additional fundraiser for your charity, that allows for the acceptance of donations at all times.

Imagine how staff can have the meaningful conversations with visitors and donors, without needing to shake a collection bucket or ask for details on paper, but simply guide or signpost people towards the donation device.

As a consequence, queues at payment points and enquiry desks are more manageable, as donors make their digital gift separately at the Donation Station, and the customer experience is better.

The Donation Station can be tailored to the situation it’s needed for. Varied sizes and models are available, from wall-mounted options for smaller spaces, to counter-top and hand-held versions for fundraising at events, or fixed floor-standing options for permanent display.

Design, Support and Service

The Donation Station by GWD is available in a number of different design variations. Different in their physical display and usability, they all deliver the same interactive storytelling and donor journey on screen.

With solid experience in project management, delivery and installation is also part of our service. Our digital systems are fully supported by our expert teams, who will show you how to set up, and get best use from the Donation Station. You can access our online help-desk and tutorials to quickly and easily learn to use the Donation Station.

We’ll also help analyse your data and gain insights, giving fundraising teams a deeper understanding of donor behaviours. We provide regular downloadable reports through your own customer portal. 

If you need further help, you can opt for on-site support, callouts, out-of-hours assistance, and staff training.

Conversation Starter

Converting an initial donation into a meaningful relationship is also part of the Donation Station experience. Key prompts for information gathering allow you to capture data from donors that can be used to continue the conversation into the future.

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.

Custom Branding

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.

Encourages Promotion​

The opportunity to engage further with donors, and start a longer lasting relationship that converts to membership or legacy funding is here too.

We’ve designed the user journey to allow for interactive storytelling, to capture interest and guide the donor towards this goal.

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.

Specific Purpose Donation

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 activites as separate campaigns.

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.
