More than £650,000 (US$828,320) of charitable donations have been made to 44 church parishes across The Catholic Diocese of Arundel and Brighton in the UK using contactless cards since the diocese introduced contactless giving terminals in 2019, according to NFC World.
The diocese’s 66 contactless terminals also enable eligible donors to register their donation with the UK’s Gift Aid scheme, with the average contactless Gift Aid donation being £14.50 (US$18.50) and the overall average contactless card donation £11.92 (US$15.19).
The contactless solution provides parishioners and visitors to Arundel Cathedral “with the option of supporting the work and mission of the Church in an easy and modern way using contactless payment donations without the need to hunt for cash, which a high proportion of people generally don’t carry around much today,” the diocese’s Gift Aid coordinator Patricia Wrightson says.
