Whistler search and rescue Fund
The Whistler Search and Rescue Society Endowment fund was established in 2007 by the Whistler Search and Rescue Society to address the organization's need for long term funding.
The fund consists of principal that is invested over the long term. The interest earned on the fund each year goes to support the Whistler Search and Rescue Society.
Gifts to the fund are placed into the investment, creating a permanent source of support for Whistler Search and Rescue, helping them do good work forever. It's a simple way to build income for a local group providing an invaluable service.
The fund is professionally managed and overseen by the Community Foundation of Whistler.
Donors can leave a bequest to Whistler Search and Rescue through the Community Foundation of Whistler, creating a personal legacy that will benefit search and rescue operations for all the years to come.
Whistler Search and Rescue Society was formed in 1973 after a tragic avalanche on Whistler Mountain. Whistler SAR is a community-based organization run entirely by volunteers who have a common desire to provide life-saving services to anyone in distress 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Whistler SAR is devoted to continuous training and requires vital communication equipment, gear, rescue tools, personal safety equipment and other items in order to provide high quality service that the community depends on.
