Support Us

If you are interested in supporting wilderness search and rescue but are unable to participate directly in our activities, consider making a financial contribution to TSAR.

Search and rescue emergencies require specialized equipment, including communications and technical evacuation equipment, which are purchased and maintained by the group.

As a 501c3, TSAR keeps its operating costs to a minimum. Members are responsible for providing their own personal gear as well as transportation to and from rescue missions.

If you would like to support us, please consider a donation through PayPal or by Shopping with Amazon Smile and selecting Tidewater Search and Rescue as the non-profit group you wish to support, every purchase you make helps support our group.

Donations are tax deductible and can also be made by contacting the Operations Section Chief at tsaroperations[at]
