Fundraising for charity in a cashless society

It’s crystal clear that for years we’ve been heading towards a completely cashless society.

Too often, noble causes remain underfunded through the ever-more-common “Sorry, I don’t carry cash,” rejection. In fact, fundraising charities without an answer to the lifestyles of this cashless society are missing out on more than £80 million every year.

Turn anything into a donation point

An effective fundraising strategy in today’s cashless society demands understanding your audience. It’s as important to allow traditional cash donations as it is to bridge the gap between you and your cashless supporters.

We have the solution that ticks all the fundraising boxes and it’s delightfully inexpensive.

Whether you upgrade your existing fundraising tins or get creative by enhancing your charity mascot toy, marathon medals, badges or more, your cashless worries are at an end.

What is Near Field Communication?

Near Field Communication, commonly called NFC, is in your everyday lives.

It’s how you pay with Apple Pay or Google Pay.

Smartphones have the inbuilt ability to read NFC, though NFC on Android has been readily available longer than NFC for iPhones (which is fully available for XS/QR models and newer, but can be used on older models using dedicated apps).

In a cashless society, NFC is the most secure, suitable and affordable means to collect digital donations for any cause, and a solution like Thyngs’ involves no time-consuming app download to make it work.

With NFC, your supporters are just a few taps away from pledging their donations.

Are contactless donations viable?

‘Contactless’ tech uses similar convenience principles to cashless, allowing swift payments or donations with the tap of your card, but they require huge initial outlays to get off the ground.

These outlays are only the beginning – the ongoing maintenance of contactless readers is a recurring nightmare you’ll be lucky to avoid.

Digital donations using mobile wallets is the present and the future of our cashless society, aligned with the progression of commerce, and the only path we recommend.

It was important for us to provide a seamless cashless donation experience for our guests that was easy-to-use, hassle-free to access and that could mirror the aesthetic of the evening with simple and secure payment options by touch.

Movember started as a simple way to raise money and awareness for a good cause, something that anyone can take part in. The contactless badge is the next step. So many of our incredible supporters take part in amazing challenges, and our no-fuss badges take donating to a whole new level.
