Leave a Legacy

Thank you for your interest in the BCSAR Endowment.  The primary purpose of the Fund shall be to establish a permanent endowment fund that provides an ongoing annual distribution to the Organization for as long as the Fund and Organization exists. Distributions will primarily fund the training and equipment costs of the BCSAR team so the members may focus on their technical rescue and search skills and callouts rather than worrying about funding their team’s needs.

Our Endowment is located at the North Valley Community Foundation (NVCF).  You can arrange your donation directly with NVCF.
