Charity Fundraising for care homes and social care

Youth cubs, social or community groups, and children’s charities play a vital role in the UK’s social care provision.

Those who are involved with and benefit from these organizations hold a profound appreciation for their services and assistance; and these groups and charities heavily rely on fundraising support to carry out their essential work.

Many are required to deliver treatments or experiences, such as specialist equipment or activities for residents or patients, through fundraising.

The donations that come from sponsorship challenges, lotteries, sales or even charity shops, all go to support these services.

Along with this, we recognise care homes, youth clubs and social groups can benefit from integrating digital giving devices into their fundraising channels. Take a look at how our Donation Station is built for exactly this purpose.

Purposeful Contactless Payment Devices

Tap to donate

The Donation Station by GWD provides a system that fits modern preferred payment methods, with a touchscreen device that easily and hygienically takes card and mobile payments, all without taking staff away from the hard work of residential treatment.

We’ve developed an interactive design that’s customised to your needs. Your branding, images, and mission can be combined through a sensitive narrative, that catches the attention of supporters.

The Donation Station comes in a variety of configurations, including the floor-standing Skinny or a countertop/handheld Midi to enable an easy ‘tap to donate’ giving experience.

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.


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.

Cause Awareness

The opportunity to engage further with donors and grow your cause awareness through messaging.

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.

Choice of Donations

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 activities as separate campaigns.

Gift Aid Up Sell

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. The Donation Station is designed to encourage and secure this additional fundraising income easily, through simple reports that can be downloaded and submitted to HMRC as part of a Gift Aid claim.
