We appreciate any size donations to help run KVRS - you are helping us keep our community safe.

Your donation will provide a vital service for island communities surrounded by wilderness. You will be helping to equip, train, and maintain the infrastructure necessary for a highly trained and prepared all-volunteer rescue organization.

We have no paid staff, and do not charge for our services. We are funded by public and private donations and do not receive operational funding from City, Borough, State, or Federal sources.

The Internal Revenue Service considers our organization tax exempt under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code, your contribution is considered tax deductible under section 170 of that code. KVRS is also qualified to receive other bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under sections 2055, 2106, and 2522 of that code.

If you used the website donation option a receipt of donation statement that can be used for your taxes will be emailed to the email address you provided. If you choose to mail a donation, please provide a return address.
