The IMRF Needs You!

As a charity we cannot achieve our mission of preventing loss of life in the world's waters without your support.

Without funding and sponsorship we would not be able to run projects such as the Lifeboat Crew Exchange, Global SAR Development, Rescue Boat Guidelines and so much more ...

As an individual there are many different ways in which you can support us …


You Can Donate to the IMRF

If you want to donate click the button at the top of this page. You can also send us either a one-off donation, or a monthly amount.


You Can Fundraise for the IMRF

The International Maritime Rescue Federation (IMRF) encourages events to raise funds for the IMRF’s activities to prevent loss of life in the world’s waters.

Fundraising can be achieved by swimming, running, baking, a coffee morning etc. If you need some ideas for an IMRF Fundraising Event, get inspired on our Fundraising Ideas page.

It's your responsibility to ensure your fundraising event runs safely. We can't accept liability for accidents or damage, even when that activity is run to raise money for the IMRF.

Your event must be covered by the appropriate insurance. Charity fundraising is regulated by law and you'll find a lot of useful information about licenses, risk assessments, insurance and more at the Institute of Fundraising.

Once you have worked out all the details, please complete and submit the IMRF Fundraising Event Form to the IMRF.

We will then check your form, approve it and make it live on the website.

We will let you know when that happens, so you can let your friends, family and acquaintances know!
