Donating

Marah is funded solely by gifts, grants and fundraising by supporters.

The Charity is a non-profit making organisation and we are always grateful for financial donations.

Your donation will help us to continue our work and make a positive impact on the lives of the people who use our services.

£65 pays for 20 meals at Marah's Drop-In.

£40 pays for one month’s urgent needs payments for clients made by our advocacy team. These payments include bus/train fares to hospital and other urgent appointments, emergency top-up of electricity/gas supply for those in financial crisis, and basic food and drink for rough sleepers outside of drop-in days.

The following options are available for making a donation:

  • Virgin Giving provides an online donation service. You can make a one-off or regular donation. You do not need to register to use the site or make your donation. All your donation is passed on to Marah and Virgin Giving also administer Gift Aid for us.

Cash Donations

Food donations

We ask that all food donations are passed to Stroud District Foodbank (SDC). SDC work closely with us, and your food will be passed on to those in need, including Marah clients. Foodbank provides Marah with our emergency food packs for people we are working with who are in crisis. They also pass on food to Marah that we can use for our meals served at the Drop-in.

Please contact Foodbank to donate food. They can arrange collection from you. Their website also provides details of what items are always needed.
