Contactless donations

Optimise your fundraising revenues with contactless donations

We are all now living in a predominantly cashless society and charities need to adapt so they don’t get left behind. If your charity doesn’t have a great way to collect contactless donations, it’s time to move. Also donors tend to give more when they donate with their card so adopting cashless technology is a must to maximise your fundraising income. Contactless fundraising can be applied in a range of scenarios from installing a fixed donation station in your premises such as a church, museum or hospice, to taking a contactless donation box out for a street collection or to an event. Charities are also placing contactless technology with corporate partners creating an easy way to engage employees in fundraising.
