Support climber, skier, and hiker rescue in Chelan County.
Support CCMR Rescue Efforts
Searching for and rescuing people who become lost or hurt in the rugged mountains of Chelan County takes a well-trained, well-equipped team of climbers and rescuers. Training and response operations require extensive financial resources, and are often subsidized by public donations. Because of operational costs, including extensive operations in 2020 and thus far in 2021, CCMR is always looking for financial contributions of any size.
At this time, tax-deductible donations can be made through PayPal (preferred) or through USPS mail:
