CardFlight Helps Power Donations at the Henry Vilas Zoo

Today is an exciting day. It’s the day we helped power a zoo to collect credit card donations, replacing those bulky boxes where people throw unwanted foreign currency, small coins, and lint. CardFlight has been working closely with a team of engineers who built out a donation kiosk for the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison, Wisconsin. They went live with the kiosk today, allowing visitors to swipe their credit card, type in a donation amount and support the zoo.

By replacing the box with a swipeable kiosk stand, the zoo is able to bring in more donations. Nowadays people carry less and less cash, which means that zoos and other organizations are losing valuable donations that would help grow their efforts in conservation and education. Allowing swipe capability for donations, simply encourages visitors to give more. Scott Acker, of Heck of an IDEA, the development agency behind the integration said, “I had this idea for the zoo but couldn’t find the right middleware to power it. Luckily, I found CardFlight which gave me the hardware, software and support I needed to make this happen.”
