Make a Donation Now!
We appreciate any donation, no matter how large or small!
Central Piedmont Search and Rescue never charges for our services to any requesting agency or individual we help. We are a nonprofit and all of our funding comes from sponsors, members, and the community—never tax payer money.
Where the Money Goes
100% of your gift goes to training, supporting, and recruiting our active member-volunteers. Each member-volunteer provides their own personal equipment, dogs, supplies, transportation and even worker’s compensation premiums. Proceeds do not go to an individual for their own expenses, mileage, or personal gear.
Areas of Support
- Unit search and rescue missions
- Member training and certification
- Specialized rescue equipment
- Field communications
- Community educational programs
Ways to Support CPSAR
If you’re interested in donating items, being a branding sponsor, or other ways you can help your community and CPSAR, please contact Rusty Starnes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One of the simplest ways to give is to write a check. Provide your name as you wish to be listed in our records and online (or let us know if you wish to remain anonymous), provide your preferred contact information and email address, and mail this information along with your check to:
Central Piedmont Search and Rescue
P.O. Box 1854
Albemarle, NC 28002
You will receive an acknowledgement by mail (or email, as you prefer). CPSAR complies with the guidelines set forth by the IRS regarding tax deductible charitable contributions.
CPSAR is also registered with Amazon Smile. If you select CPSAR as your charity of choice, we will receive contributions from Amazon.
Many companies offer matching gift programs to their employees. Check with your employer to find out if your company will match employee gifts to charitable nonprofit organizations. You may be able to double or even triple your donation to CPSAR.
Consider celebrating the birthdays and anniversaries of your loved ones, or making a donation in honor or in memory of a friend or loved one with a gift to CPSAR. When you provide acknowledgment addresses and instructions, we will send a letter or email with your personal message or remembrance. We will not share the amount of your gift unless you request it.
Another way to contribute to CPSAR is through a gift of stock. Making a gift of securities is simple and offers a number of valuable financial benefits—including being tax-deductible. Please contact your broker for assistance.
