Wendy Stehouwer Family Support Fund

The Wendy Stehouwer Family Support Fund was established in June 2020 to provide short-term financial support to the immediate family of an Alaska SAR volunteer in a time of crisis. Wendy was a strong supporter of Alaska volunteer SAR efforts and believed strongly in building community and supporting friends and family.


In the event of a significant injury, line of duty death or other crisis within the immediate family of an Alaska SAR Volunteer, the volunteer, their family member or team member, or an ASARA Director may request a grant by submitting this form “Grant Request Wendy Stehouwer” to the ASARA President at


The ASARA President can approve a grant of $250.00 for a hotel or $500.00 for transportation. An additional request for up to $1500.00 can be made requiring the approval of the ASARA President and one Board Director.


The ASARA Treasurer will disburse grant funds via either check or electronic bank transfer.
