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.

It costs Marah £3 to provide a two-course nutritional hot meal. This covers fresh ingredients, hall rental, utilities and equipment costs.

MARAH’S 100 FRIENDS

Marah’s target is to sign up 100 regular donors of £3 per month by the end of 2018. Can you help us reach our target? Can you sign up a friend or family member?

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.
  • Use our Donation Form to make a one-off or regular donation by cheque or bank transfer. Please print the form and complete it by hand and send it to the Marah office. You have the option to make a Gift Aid declaration on the form, which will increase your donation to us by 25%. The donation form has the address and payee details.

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. Marah also obtains food weekly from Tesco via the FareShare scheme. We also receive a weekly fresh food donation from Waitrose.
