A non-profit all-volunteer organization providing four-season emergency backcounty service in Grand County, Colorado, USA

Grant from The Grand Foundation

GCSAR grand lake trailer donated by the Grand Foundation

Thank you to the The Grand Foundation for awarding us a grant in 2013 that allowed us to purchase a new trailer for our Grand Lake rescue base. Their generosity will allow us to put more resources into the backcountry sooner, which may mean the difference of life and limb. So again, thanks for all you do Grand Foundation, and thank you the people who support this great organization!


Grand County Search & Rescue is an all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to helping lost and/or injured persons.

While we fall under the control of the Grand County Sheriff and the Grand County Commissioners, we operate on an extremely small budget.  The team is funded almost exclusively by donations, fund raisers, and grants as well as the generosity of the people who have had the opportunity to see our team in action, first hand.

The funds we receive as donations are used to acquire and maintain our rescue/command center vehicles, snowmobiles, ATVs, repair and replace team gear (such as litters, ropes, climbing hardware, medical equipment, and radios) and operational expenses.

We welcome donations of any size.  Whether you have some spare change or would like to endow a multi-year contribution, we appreciate your support.
