Marion County Search & Rescue Communications is an all-volunteer organization that is supported 100% by donations. We do not receive any government funding, nor do we pay salaries for administrative overhead. SARCOM is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, and as an Oregon Public Benefit non-profit corporation. This means that all donations made to SARCOM are tax deductible. When a donation is received, SARCOM will issue a letter on official letterhead to be filed with the donor's tax return.
