Donation devices for education

Educational organisations can achieve so much more through the support of others, and people are often happy to donate funds to see students in these institutions thrive.

The decline in cash use, and growth of card and contactless payments is having an effect across fundraising.

Therefore, it’s good to plan for this when designing activities for your organisation – introducing contactless donations is one such opportunity to pull-in interest and build funds.

The Donation Station by GWD is a multi-functional device to help fundraise and tell your story.

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.

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.
