Donations to the BC SAR Association help us fulfil our mandate of supporting the activities of Search and Rescue groups throughout British Columbia. Your support will be used to deliver training, assistance and equipment grants to SAR groups in communities large and small, urban and rural, all over BC. Your contribution can help make our job safer, and in turn save the lives of lost and missing people.
The BC Search and Rescue Association does not solicit funds by phone.
The easiest way to donate is to click the blue donate now button on this or any other page on the site. That will take you to the CanadaHelps.org charity portal where you can use your credit card to set up a one time or ongoing donation. Tax receipts are issued by CanadaHelps.
Direct Financial Assistance
The BC SAR Association also accepts donations in the form of cheque or money order by mail. Tax receipts will be issued for amounts over $20.
