Tuku Aroha ki to marae o Waihou
E te whanau, tena koutou
Tuku Aroha is a way for whanau in Aotearoa and overseas to make a contribution to the running of Waihou marae. This may include continued maintenance and up keep of the marae complex, waahi tapu (3 cemeteries), whare karakia (Waihou Church), building projects, educational programs and events.
The marae is non profit, and we rely on external funding for projects and wananga, fundraising and the generous contribution of whanau to maintain the marae facilities.
For more information regarding contributions to tuku aroha, please fill out this form or contact a Marae Trustee. Koha and donations go into the marae trustees account and is acknowledge at trustee hui. The marae accounts are audited every year.
