Sometimes referred to as ‘contactless donations’, contactless fundraising is the digital equivalent to a donation box. Instead of a box to collect coins, you can have a device that takes contactless card payments instead.
Pet Lives, an animal sanctuary used to do bucket collections at their local supermarket. Donations have been dropping off. They hold an on-street fundraising event outside the supermarket. One volunteer rides an exercise bike for 12 hours. The other volunteers use contactless payment devices to take contactless donations and raise over £2,000. After the event, they put the contactless device at their main reception to encourage visitor donations there.
