Tap & Give with CDF

Collecting small donations for your Church or organisation is now simple and effective with a Tap & Give terminal (Quest Donation Point Tap). Giving people the flexibility to donate using cards rather than cash means they are able to contribute to their parish community in in the way that’s easiest for them. This also means that over time you’re likely to increase your parish revenue. 

The Catholic Development Fund (CDF) has partnered with Quest Payment Systems to offer Catholic agencies and churches an affordable, and portable ‘Tap & Give’ device. These counter-top devices quickly accept low-value card donations; these donations are automatically deposited straight into a CDF account.
