Marine Rescue Lake Macquarie receives limited financial support from the NSW Government and from members of the boating community. In recognition of the services we provide they contribute to Marine Rescue Lake Macquarie through a small annual levy on their boat licence and registration fees. Many boaters join our Radio Club to show their support.
This welcome support provides about half our budget but we depend on our volunteers' committed community fundraising efforts and generous donors and sponsors for the remainder.
