SMRG Shenandoah Mountain Rescue Group

Support SMRG

SMRG keeps its operating costs to a minimum. Members donate their personal time to train and respond to missions 24x7x365, and are responsible for providing their own personal gear as well as transportation to and from rescue missions.

Search and rescue emergencies require specialized equipment which are purchased and maintained by the group, including communications and technical evacuation equipment. SMRG relies on donations from individuals, foundations, and corporations to support the purchase and maintenance of supplies and equipment for missions, operations, and training.


If you are interested in supporting wilderness search and rescue but are unable to participate directly in our activities, consider making a financial contribution to SMRG. Donations are tax deductible and can be made securely via PayPal:

or via physical payments sent to:
