Donation devices for events

Secure, Contactless and Convenient

Events are key tools for raising campaign awareness, brand visibility and product launches. Charity partnerships, brand CSR initiatives or fundraising events are all opportunities for fundraising.

As consumers move away from cash, the typical event collection buckets and box donations can benefit from a different approach.

The Donation Station is a cashless, contactless donation device geared for convenient, secure payments when for example, attendees are short on time and cash, but still want to show their support.

Why add a Donation Device?

The Donation Station by GWD is a modern equivalent of a cash collection box. Our device is a fully customisable touchscreen device that takes card chip and pin, and contactless payments,
freeing up customer teams for other tasks.

Users can give money to specific causes or projects, and information can be captured for future marketing analysis, with the protection of data encryption.

Telling the story of your organisation through the device means beautiful screensavers, branding, photos, and graphics to catch interest.Don’t forget to add the Gift Aid integration for extra fundraising income,
plus remind donors that they can become members too. The options are varied to suit your needs.

Design options for different locations

The Donation Station comes in a choice of formats to suit all venues. Configurations include the floor-standing Maxi that securely fits to a podium, or a countertop Midi size that can be used with freestanding podium plus hand strap for a face-to-face approach when appropriate.

All of our solutions come with support and maintenance as standard, through training materials and our online help-desk. We configure the software with your input to meet your goals and are experienced in project delivery.

For further support, we can provide staff training, on-site support, callouts, and out-of-hours assistance.

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.

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.
