Coastguard is the charity saving lives at sea.

Support from our members is absolutely vital. Each year we need to raise over $11 million to support our brave volunteers with rescue gear, training, medical supplies and back office support. They risk their lives to save others; it is the least we can do.

Please join other members in your area by including a donation today. Together, you can help each one of our volunteers be the best they can be.
