Tap to Donate

Tap to Donate

You can now 'tap to donate' at the NFSA

Now at the NFSA in Canberra, you can ‘tap to donate’ at Reception to help us do more to collect, preserve and share Australia’s audiovisual history. 


What is Tap To Donate?

A new way to give! By using our Tap to Donate terminals at NSFA Headquarters in Canberra, it’s easy to make a donation with your payWave or PayPass-enabled credit or debit card.

How does it work?

It works exactly like a contactless eftpos machine. All you have to do is hold your payWave or PayPass-enabled Visa or Mastercard up to the ‘wave’ sign and our standard donation amount is automatically deducted from your linked account.

What is the donation amount?

Every Tap to Donate terminal has a fixed donation amount which is displayed on the terminal.

Can I get a receipt?

Our Tap to Donate terminals work like cash collection tins – no receipt is issued. For tax purposes, you can claim a donation between $2 and $10 with your bank statement.

If you have made a donation of $10 or more via the Tap to Donate facility and you would like to receive a tax-deductible receipt, please let Reception know at the time of your donation and we will arrange one for you. Otherwise, you can make a tax-deductible donation with a receipt via our online donation form.

Which cards can I use?

We currently only accept payWave and PayPass-enabled Visa, Mastercard and debit cards at our Tap to Donate terminals.
