What is Tap to Donate?

Have you seen the exciting new way to support the Starlight Children's Foundation? By using our Tap to Donate terminals, 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.

It's as easy as 1-2-3

Make a donation at one of our Tap to Donate terminals. You'll support Starlight's many important programs. Your donation brings happiness to sick kids!

What is the donation amount?

Every Starlight Tap to Donate terminal has a fixed donation amount which is displayed on the header card. (Usually $4)

Do 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 Receipt, please call us on 1300 727 827. Otherwise, you can make a tax deductible donation with a receipt via our online donation form.

Where can I make a donation?

We're currently trialling our Tap to Donate terminals at select retail points, so be on the look out for one near you!

Which cards can I use?

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