Major Gifts

Make a massive difference to us

If you would like to make a significant gift to Scottish Mountain Rescue, we would be delighted to work with you to make sure that your donation has the impact that you hope for and that supporting our work is a rewarding experience.

Working in partnership

We aim to build meaningful long term relationships with donors who can support us with significant gifts. We provide a personalised and tailored service to all our key supporters and we can also arrange visits and meetings with our teams.


Your involvement and support helps our volunteer teams save lives.

The teams are all very small, made up typically of around 30 volunteers, they operate on a shoestring compared to many bigger rescue organisations. But what they lack in resources, the teams make up for with passion, dedication and skill.

As a community of small charitable organisations, donations of just a few thousand pounds can make a huge impact.

Being part of Scottish Mountain Rescue

We welcome all our donors to be part of our team.

Being part of Scottish Mountain Rescue and the teams that we represent is the perfect way to reach and support a network of communities, so that everyone can enjoy Scotland’s mountains and wild places and all the physical and mental benefits it offers.
