It’s time for the Annual Whitman Crew Capital Campaign. This campaign is separate from the club’s fundraising activity (fall wreath/candle sale, dine-ins, etc.). It supports our capital account to cover the cost of new equipment as well as maintenance and repair of existing assets (boats, rigging, oars, slides, coxswain equipment, ergometers, coach’s launches, and engines). The Capital Campaign contribution is REQUIRED for all athletes who will be rowing during the Spring season.
This year, the tax-deductible contribution is a minimum of $450. This is the same amount as the last two years. We understand crew is a significant commitment of both time and resources. (A list of estimated fees can be found elsewhere at the Whitman Crew website.) However, improving our equipment and maintaining safety requires tangible investment. As a club sport, we receive no funding from the school system, state, or federal programs and our annual capital campaign plays a critical role in meeting our equipment and asset needs. Our board is entirely volunteer, and all dollars go directly to support your rower.
We are a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, so your contribution is tax-deductible, and we welcome contributions above the baseline level.
Please make your contribution online through the Capital Campaign registration. All contributions must be made by February 15, 2020.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and support.
