ASVA and GoodBox partnership aims to support Scottish attractions’ recovery by helping them increase income through contactless donations

  • ASVA charitable organisation members will benefit from exclusive transaction rate discount on GoodBox contactless devices
  • To celebrate the new partnership, ten contactless donation boxes are available to members in a cut-price deal

ASVA is delighted to announce that it has partnered with GoodBox – the financial technology specialist that’s revolutionising contactless donations – to offer any of our charitable organisation members an exclusive incentive to help them take advantage of this income-generating innovation.

Statistics show that GoodBox contactless donations technology can increase donations income by up to 64% and ASVA is keen to help our members to capitalise on the huge potential for this technology to generate income to support business recovery.

As a result, ASVA has negotiated a special deal enabling our charitable members using GoodBox contactless technology to benefit from a lower transaction fee rate of 1.5%, compared to the standard rate of 2.5%. This is a commercial and Scottish first – the only other GoodBox client afforded this benefit is the Church of England.

ASVA CEO, Gordon Morrison, said: “As visitor attractions strive to recover from the impacts of the pandemic, there has never been a more important time for operators to develop new income streams and maximise revenue – and we are continually looking for ways of helping our members achieve this. We identified GoodBox as a perfect partner to support our sector due to the outstanding and impressive track record it has in enabling its clients, thanks to its award-winning contactless technology, to increase public donations and raise more funds.“

GoodBox Co-Founder & Managing Director, Francesca Hodgson, said: “The team at GoodBox are very excited to team up with ASVA and support Scotland’s visitor attractions sector. We’re very aware of how difficult the past couple of years has been for so many iconic attractions that play such an important part in enriching the lives of visitors and local communities. We know how much so many venues and sites depend on the generosity of the public to help them to raise much-needed funds to secure their future. Our contactless donations technology has proven to do just that so we do hope the special transaction rate we’re offering ASVA members will support them.”

GoodBox – which has just become ASVA’s newest trade member – provides a range of award-winning contactless technology and innovative digital tools to trigger spontaneous donations. Its clients include an extensive and diverse range of leading visitor attractions across all categories, from the Natural History Museum to The Lowry to London’s Royal Parks. 

Using technology for good, GoodBox also drives engagement with donors to encourage cashless fundraising for charities all over the UK, tackling disease, poverty, hunger and homelessness.

To further celebrate this new partnership, ASVA is pleased to offer members the opportunity to purchase a limited number of GBx Core contactless donation boxes at a vastly reduced rate. These boxes are normally priced at £375.00 (plus VAT) per unit, but ASVA has 10 boxes to offer for just £38.00 (plus VAT) each. These will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note any further service, artwork and security fees will be the responsibility of those purchasing the boxes. Members interested in taking advantage of this offer should email ASVA’s CEO Gordon Morrison at to register their interest.
