Fundraising and Donations


Search and Rescue Teams in the Lower Mainland DO NOT solicit for funds over the telephone. If you get a phone call asking for a donation, it is not from an active SAR Group in the Metro Vancouver or Fraser Valley Area. If you would like to make a donation to the SAR Group in your local area, please contact them directly.  Many are listed in our Links section, or you can contact Emergency Management BC.

The Central Fraser Valley Search and Rescue Society is a registered non-profit charitable society comprised of approximately 35 dedicated unpaid professionals. Our team has been offering specialized public service to the residents and visitors of the City and Township of Langley, City of Abbotsford, and Electoral District “H” (Sumas Mountain) since 1978.

In order to provide our quality services the team trains on a regular basis to maintain a high standard of professional emergency service to the community. A considerable amount of time is also spent attending community events, and providing the “Hug A Tree and Survive” and “Survive Outside” programs to school age children throughout our service areas, all free of charge.

Although our team receives funding from our served municipalities, which covers our basic operating expenses (telephones, insurance, fuel, and building rental), our annual expenses far exceed this budgeting assistance. We rely upon generous citizens and organizations for financial donations to fill the gaps.

New equipment purchases, replacement of worn out equipment, and specialized training costs depend solely on our fundraising endeavors, as well as donations we receive from public events and through donations from community services and citizens.

If you would like to support the unpaid professionals of the Central Fraser Valley Search and Rescue Society, please contact us, or forward your donation to:
