Yorkshire Payments is running a competition to offer two charities a contactless device, which also accepts donations from Apple Pay, Google Pay and via an Apple Watch.
A financial tech firm is offering the chance for two charities to win a contactless payments device.
Yorkshire Payments already provides contactless payments devices to organisations including charities.
It is now offering two charities the chance to win a free device. Those entering need to explain how a contactless donation device would benefit its work.
The competition closes on 28 February.
“Many charities traditionally rely heavily on cash donations to make up a large part of their fundraising income,” said Yorkshire Payments Managing Director James Howard.
“However, times are changing quickly and, as more and more people choose to pay by card, they expect to be able to give to charity using their card as well.
“It is important that charities keep up with this trend and make it as easy as possible for people to continue to donate.
“We have launched our competition to give two charities the chance to win a contactless donation box so they can do just that.”
One charity already using Yorkshire Payments’ device is Overgate Hospice in Halifax.
“Our contactless donation boxes make it much more convenient for us to accept donations,” said Overgate Hospice Director of Income Generation Laura Golding.
“They allow anyone wishing to donate to select the amount they want to give and tap their card, phone or smartwatch to complete the transaction.
“They are portable too, meaning we can maximise the vital donations we receive to the charity, especially from the increasing number of people who don’t carry cash but still wish to make a donation.”
Last month sporting charity Belvoir Cricket and Countryside Trust revealed how using contactless giving terminals boosted its fundraising potential at events.
Also last month a report by the Charity Bank into giving trends revealed the importance for charities using contactless giving, this cited the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal’s raising of £780,000 last year from contactless donations, compared to £211,000 the previous year.
