How to Help Us Help Others In Need

The Friendship Diving-Rescue Unit does not charge any individual or police/fire department having a genuine need for the use of our services. Our Team purpose and dedication demands that we never have done so in the past and that we seek to never have to do so in the future. However, in reality our services do not come ‘for free’. Equipment maintenance and replacement costs, vehicle operating and replacement costs, insurance costs, and a whole host of other requirements require a yearly funding source in order to be paid. Currently the Friendship Diving-Rescue Unit receives NO direct financial support from any municipality or Governmental entity. And although we are financially supported by the Friendship Fire Company’s Social Club we still must yearly also conduct fund-raising efforts, apply for and receive grants, as well as seek public donations if we are to continue on with our mission. And that is where YOU can play an important part in allowing us to continue to provide our specialized services to anyone in need of them – totally free of charge. If YOU are unable to dedicate any time or effort to our cause you can still provide us with the support we require by making a monetary donation in any amount you can. As a 501c3 organization your financial donation to the Friendship Diving-Rescue Unit is tax-deductible. But more importantly, you can be sure that all of your donated money will be used to help your fellow man.


We are a registered 501c3 non-profit organization and your donations are tax deductible. To donate please send your check in any amount to: The Friendship Diving-Rescue Unit, 423 High Street, Phoenixville, Pa.  19460   Attention: Operations Fund


In closing, we thank YOU for your support!
