As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the ASRC endeavors to keep its operating costs to a minimum. Members of our Groups provide their own personal gear, transportation, and training. We are proud to provide our services at no cost to anyone in need. Your tax-deductible donation helps defray Conference expenses and allows us to continue operating throughout the mid-Atlantic region. All donations are fully tax-deductible.
