Donate, Because Life Happens

We Volunteer, But Rescue Is Not Free.

It doesn’t happen without you. The Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad can’t be there to start CPR on a man whose heart stops without the checks you send. We can’t backboard the woman in a head-on collision without the Oyster Roast tickets you buy. We can’t guide a new baby into the world without the equipment your group donates. Your sustaining financial support, along with our generous volunteers, allows the Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad to do what we do so well: provide you with free, life-saving, emergency care.

The Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Because of our volunteer efforts, pre-hospital emergency medical care in the City of Virginia Beach is free to residents and visitors, and contributes to over $24 million in savings to the City.

The squad has two fund drives every year, in the spring and the fall. But, of course, donations can be made at any time.

There are all types of donations, from small to large, from individuals to corporations. Also, donations can be made in the form of Memorials, Bequests, Trusts, Endowments and Honorariums. You can make a one-time donation or a recurring donation. Truly, every little bit helps.

If you would like to give to us through the Combined Federal Campaign, the Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad is CFC# 82014.
