Rowing has brought huge benefits to participants lives in the Western community since the team first began. It is a sport that the Western team is dedicated to making available to all. The team accomplishes this through a number of means, including keeping participation expenses to a minimum. The expenses involved with running and effective an efficient team represent a constant challenge for a group that ultimately must count on being self funded. Maintaining an operational fleet of racing shells is a multi thousand dollar undertaking every year. The costs of race entries, trailering, regatta dues, gas, hotels and car rentals add to the financial burden. With increasing visibility of the program and a series of recent large victories in the conference and impressive showings regionally and nationally, the team looks towards a season of even larger growth and needs than years past. The advances the team has made are to the credit of support provided by alumni and friends of the Western Men’s Crew, and we look forward to the continued support to help us through another break through year.
We have established an account with the WWU Foundation where donations can be made directly to the team. 100% of the tax deductible gifts will be used to support the Crew program. Without donor support, it would be impossible to cover race expenses, equipment purchases and travel expenses.
If you are interested in donating to the team, you can ask for a foundation envelope, or you can do it online! Thank you very much for your support.
