What are some benefits of a donation or giving kiosk?
Charity Events
Having a donation kiosk machine at charity events has been proven to increase percentage of donations because the kiosks are private, attractive, and modern, the technology is current and user friendly, and the kiosks allow for cashless transactions. These kiosk systems are great for walk-ups donors that may not have known about your event prior to the date of the event. Having a giving kiosk means that you can still collect donations from the walk-up attendees through an easy and secure electronic transaction system.
If your event requires people to check in upon arrival, check-in kiosk systems will alleviate the congestion that is caused by a large number of people are checking in at once. Custom kiosk machines can be designed to check in your attendees, and also allow them to make a donation concurrently during the check-in process. In addition, if the charity is one in which a sponsored contender in a marathon is trying to raise a specific amount of money, the sponsors, supporters and team members can use the kiosks to review goal progress.
Church Donation Kiosk Machines
More and more churches are putting giving kiosks in place of boxes and bins because they provide a way for church attendees to tithe using a credit or debit card. Since not everyone carries cash or checks, these kiosks make it easy for parishioners to give.
A donation kiosk at a church can provide a variety of benefits to enhance the giving process:

  1. A card reader for electronic donations.
  2. Internet access which can allow online donations through a church website.
  3. Self-service ordering software to allow users to order products such as books, CDs and other materials.
  4. Purchasing tickets for fundraisers or other events.
  5. Wayfinding kiosks help attendees find their way around a church campus or fundraiser venue.

Olea kiosks have been made in the U.S. for more than 37 years. Our kiosk systems are very modern and available in standard models or customized kiosk machines that can be catered to your exact design and functionality specifications. Donation and giving kiosks are a great way to make the donation process more efficient and can be a great benefit to any nonprofit, charity, or church.
