How You Can Help
Feedback Madagascar is funded entirely by grants and donations. The support Feedback Madagascar has received from trusts, businesses and individuals has enabled us to further develop and continue our programmes. Feedback Madagascar is run from a voluntary UK office and all projects are managed locally in Madagascar ensuring that more of your money goes directly to where it is needed most.
Whether you choose to donate online, organise a standing order for hassle-free regular support, your contibutions large and small really can change lives!
Creative ideas are fun for participants and help make a lasting difference. Sponsored fun-runs or bike rides; an office sweepstake for sports events; home baking sales; sponsored silence; prize draws or even an unwanted Christmas present sales, your hard work and commitment makes it possible. Get inspired by looking at past fundraising events. Use our Information Brochure to help inform people who you are fundraising for.

Give As You Earn
Give As You Earn is the UK's largest payroll giving scheme. Payroll Giving enables employees to give to any UK charity straight from their gross salary (before tax is deducted), giving immediate tax relief on those donations. This means that £10 donated each month costs only £7.80 for employees paying standard rate tax (£6 for higher rate taxpayers) and will be worth as much as £20 to the charity (courtesy of the Government matching scheme for the first six months of your donations). Just decide how much you want to give each month – from just a couple of pounds, or hundreds or thousands, then your donation comes out of your pay packet before the taxman touches it.

Gift in Kind
Donations of useful materials are always welcome. We especially need electrical equipment such as GPS, cameras, computers, video equipment; or camping equipment (tents, sleeping bags, raincoats and torches etc.). Please contact our area administrator for details of our current needs.
In-kind support for Feedback enables companies to contribute to our work in a way that is directly related to their line of business. It provides Feedback with the invaluable technology, equipment and fundraising prizes that are necessary to run our programmes.
