We Need You

Community generosity powers Philips Search and Rescue Trust. The aircraft fleet and life-saving search and rescue feats performed by our crew could not be possible without the ongoing financial support of our Friends members, communities, sponsors and partners.

Collectively, funds generated through the community and sponsorship cover half of the annual expenses required to operate our rescue helicopters in each region; without this extremely generous contribution our life-saving service would not exist.

There are a variety of ways to support our critical search and rescue service, to learn about your options, check out our get involved page
