Gardens & Monuments

Useful fundraising devices for heritage sites

Visiting a garden or heritage monument is a wonderful experience. Increasingly we see the impact time spent in nature and amongst architectural sites has on our wellbeing as visitors, we are often happy to make a donation to see them thrive.

Certainly, a heritage organisation will always have a fundraising challenge that needs to be met. 

Adding a Donation Station into a such spaces can be a good way to encourage those funds; introducing an attractive device front and centre, near a visitor entry point or ticket sales hub, makes donating easy.
