Coastwatch Tay Fundraising

Coastwatch Tay Unit does not receive funding from the government or local authorities and we do not charge anyone for the services we provide to our communities, we rely on our own fundraising, along with product and financial donations from the public and local businesses. 

All Coastwatch volunteers are unpaid. We do not have any paid employees.

Our volunteers pay for most of their own equipment, clothing and expenses.

Coastwatch Tay does not attract the same high profile as mountain rescue teams and as such does not easily attract sponsorship from large national or multi-national companies.

Fundraising activities

Our members work hard to raise funds for the organisation. As well as spending time on street collections and other direct means of collecting cash from generous members of the public, we also organise activities and involve ourselves in other people's fundraising.

Here are some ways you may be able to support us.

You can make a donation by sending us a cheque or postal order (payable to "Coastwatch Tay") or you can make a donation into our collection tin at any of our events held along the Tay.
