And now the EBR fleet has grown to 18 shells from 8+’s to 1X’s. Crazy. How did this happen in such a short amount of time? From kind donations and monetary support from you.
Rowing is an expensive sport. New single racing shells can cost upwards of $15,000…without an engine!
We are always thankful for donations whether in the form of your time or monetarily.
When you give to East Bay Rowing (EBR), you help us share our love of rowing and introduce more families to the fun and adventure of our programs. Our goals are to keep fees affordable, continue to grow EBR, and provide a safe and competitive rowing experience for juniors and adults in our community. East Bay Rowing is a 501(c) non-profit organization that relies on fundraising to meet unexpected challenges and buy boats and equipment. Click on the pic to make a tax deductible donation.
EBR has been built with countless volunteer hours and an incredible level of enthusiasm and help from our extended network of family and friends. We are very grateful for this and are reminded of the importance and value of it on a daily basis. If you have interest in getting involved, don’t hesitate to contact Deb or Pat or any other EBR board member.
Donations and income from merchandise, events, and other fundraising activities have a direct impact on EBR operations and finances. In the short-term fundraising helps us react to surprises and keep our programs running smoothly. In the long-term, it determines what investments may be possible in terms of boats, facilities, safety equipment, coaching, and things like scholarships or other initiatives. We are extremely grateful for all of our donors, and gifts – at any level – go directly towards filling needs and delivering a quality experience for our rowers. Many employers offer matching gift programs that can easily double the value of your gift.
