Our Wish List
Some search and rescue groups put out a wish list, the reader wonders if you're a search and rescue group you must get funding from the county for your operations. For us that is not the case, the county is currently going through budget cuts, low sales taxes do not make funds available. Add to that Federal grant funding are not as easy to find and get as they once were. More are asking for more and the well is running low. All of our members pay for their own vehicles, rescue gear, lights, gas, etc. Even then our members are not made of money.
We hope that you view this list and see if you can help. Many people do not have the time to commit to become trained and participate in search and rescue missions, but they still would like to help. There are several ways you can get involved. The first and easiest is by making a tax deductible donation directly to RSAR.
We want to thank all those that have supported us through the years and the future.
Donations - RSAR depends on donations to provide significant portion (100%) of our budget. Please consider a donation. We pride ourselves on an efficient operation and very low cost to the community. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation; donations are tax-deductible as charitable contributions.
The team depends upon contributions from individuals, groups, firms and agencies interested in supporting our work. Rampart Search and Rescue does not receive any regular funding from local, state, or federal governments. RSAR does not solicit support via telemarketing of any kind.
