Donation Devices for Libraries

Fundraising for public services

A library’s place in society is always recognised, but sometimes its services can be overlooked. We know public services are challenged by funding constraints, and we see they’re in need of support. Patrons will by their own choice or through suggestion, be happy to make a donation to see them thrive.

Sharing something meaningful about your library, its history and future can be a good approach to asking for donations. Adding a Donation Station into a foyer can be done by building a narrative, sharing news about its staff and its community.

It’s worth thinking now about how to improve fundraising streams – introducing contactless donations are one such opportunity to grow your income, reminding people about the impact your library has on its community. The Donation Station by GWD is a multi-functional device to help fundraise and tell your story.

Why use a donation device?

The Donation Station by GWD allows for fundraising through digital payments, without the need for time-consuming involvement from staff or volunteers.

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

The Donation Station by GWD is available in different options to suit different spaces. Have a small entry space? Try the wall-mounted Slim size. Want to grab maximum attention in a foyer? The Maxi podium mounted option will work superbly to catch the eye of passing patrons.

Interactive device design options

Interactive design is used to build an emotional connection with a donor through its user journey. Eye-catching screensavers – on an Attract Loop, with branding, logos, graphics, and photos tell the story of your organisation throughout the Donation Station.

Don’t forget that membership signups and renewals can also be promoted through the device – if you need specific reports and marketing data on your visitors, we can make these available. Add the integrated Gift Aid function to boost donations by an extra 25%. 

There are also options for staff training, out-of-hours assistance, on-site support, and callouts, alongside our standard support service, designed to make using the Donation Station a good return on investment. Challenge us for a solution to your venue.
