Support Our Mission

“Members of at least 4 rescue teams came to Anne’s aid to get her off the mountain. We met many of those wonderful volunteers and were comforted by their caring professionalism and stamina. Thanks for all you do for us hikers.”

The NHOC is an all-volunteer organization, with consequently low overhead expenses. The NHOC provides funding support to agencies and organizations (especially volunteer organizations) which are involved in backcountry safety education and in search and rescue activities in the Granite State. Donations to the NHOC are welcomed, and are especially appreciated from those who have benefited from the efforts of volunteer search and rescue groups. The funds are distributed through specific grants to search and rescue groups throughout the state.
