Donations: Team's financial lifeblood

   With continuous and generous support, our volunteer rescuers were able to dedicate more time to rescues and training in 2018, and less to fundraising than in prior years.  We are so grateful for your support!

   Team members are proud and humbled to have the opportunity to be a part of the wonderful Ouray County community.  For OMRT, 2018 and 2019 were record years in terms of the number and complexity of rescues. To fulfill our obligations, team members must train on weekends and evenings, participate in rescues and attend regular meetings.  In addition, the team must continuously fundraise in order to provide for yearly operating expenses such as replacing equipment, maintenance of vehicles and the rescue facility, etc. This is where our friends, neighbors and outdoors people can help.

Donations for operations

Can you help the team with $20, $50, $100 or a donation amount of your choosing? Donations are processed through PayPal, but you don't need an account. Thanks!

Yep, a check still works
