Donors and Sponsors

Napa County Search and Rescue is an all volunteer non-profit organization supported through grants and donations. The Napa County Sheriff's Department administers the team, and provides limited funding for team equipment and basic operations. The remaining funding for operating expenses such as training, travel, personal rescue gear, uniforms and additional support vehicles comes from the membership and the generousity of donors. Out-of-pocket expenses for individual members can total to hundreds of dollars per year.

Why do we do this? We share a strong desire to help others in distress and contribute to our community. We do not receive any compensation from the Sheriff's Department or are reimbursed for the time we take off from our regular jobs in order to respond to an emergency.

We cannot survive without the generosity of our local businesses and sponsors. There are three ways to support the Napa Search and Rescue Unit.

Monetary Donations

Monetary donations can be sent directly to:

Napa County Sheriff Volunteer Search and Rescue Team
