As a non-profit, we rely on support from our community.

All of our services are provided free of charge. We rely on donations, grants, and fundraising to support our training, operations, and equipment. 


IMSARU is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible and help us to provide a highly trained, professional search and rescue service to our community. We rely on the support of our community to fund our training, equipment, and operating expenses.

Over half of IMSARU’s operating budget comes from fundraising events we conduct throughout the year. Our main fundraiser is selling hot buttered corn on the cob every August at the Western Idaho Fair.
