Fundraising and Donations

Even if you take every possible safety precaution, disaster can strike at any moment. When that happens, you can always count on the volunteers of VMR. Can we count on you?

VMR Mornington and Hastings units respond to hundreds of taskings of marine incidents a year.

Our members also participated in over 50 training exercises.

With 50 members and 3 vessels, the resources made available to VMR are considerable and the contribution of our volunteers significant (about 5,000 volunteer hours per year.)

VMR receives partial funding from the Government. These funds are greatly appreciated but funds are also required to raise the additional contributions needed to maintain its rescue services, keep its units equipped with the proper search and rescue equipment and to train its members to save lives at sea.

By contributing to VMR, individuals, clubs, societies, trusts and companies can help us save more lives.

There are a number of ways that VMR raise the funds required to maintain the volunteer rescue service in Port Phillip & Westernport. We run Bunning’s Sausage Sizzles, Tin Rattles on Nepean Highway, Annual Trivia Nights and many other activities.

VMR never releases donors or supporters names and addresses to other organisations.

VMR Mornington & Hastings – Volunteer Marine Rescue is now a Donation Partner to the Victorian Government initiative Container Deposit Scheme (CDS) and is committed to make a difference to our community and to our environment.

Through this program, organisations can raise money for their causes while promoting environmental sustainability and reducing waste in the community. Members of the CDS Victoria can now search for and donate their container deposits to VMR Mornington.

VMR would like to share our Donation Partner ID and/or barcode within our network in order for us to begin receiving donations to help us service the community in the protection of life at sea.

Download the CDS Vic East app to find refund points, get help and donate your container deposit to VMR. We thank you for your ongoing support.
