Funding & Donations
We reply on donations from the community for funding our operations, and have been proud to have served Escambia and surrounding counties for over 60 years.
Escambia Search and Rescue is 100% volunteer and 100% funded by donations from our community, or the occasional grant that we receive.
ESAR suspended its door-to-door fundraising drives.
While we work very closely with federal, state, and local law enforcement and other public safety agencies, we are a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization and do not receive tax dollars to cover the cost of responding to missions, training, or maintaining our vehicles, vessels, equipment and gear. Any donation that you can make is greatly appreciated.
