AMRS Funding Structure
Aero Methow Rescue Service is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our financial information can be found on Guidestar
About half our operating expenses are supported by local taxpayers through Emergency Medical Services levies in the Methow Valley and cities of Winthrop and Twisp.
We also receive insurance and private payments for the people we transport to hospitals.
We provide medical care to anyone who needs it, regardless of their ability to pay.
We rely on the generous tax-deductible contributions of individuals, businesses and foundations to help fund the remaining costs for our emergency services, search and rescue, and community education programs.
The parent corporation of Aero Methow Rescue Service is Methow Valley Home Health Agency, a private non-profit corporation, with 501(c) (3) status with the Internal Revenue Service. The initial mission of Methow Valley Home Health Agency was to provide Home Health Care in the Okanogan Douglas District Hospital Boundaries. In 1970 Methow Valley Home Health Agency abandoned the Home Health Care division and assumed the operation of Aero Methow Rescue Service.
