Ready All, Row! Donate to Capital’s Fleet Fundraising Campaign today!

Ready All, Row! is a year-long fundraising campaign designed to show that our commitment to excellence in rowing goes beyond solid technique on the water and extends to how we care for and maintain our fleet.

The board demonstrated its commitment to excellence by purchasing 4 boats this spring to benefit every program directly. These recent purchases were made with no financing, no fundraising and without dipping into reserves. While the Club was fortunate to have the funds to make such a large purchase this year, we recognize we cannot assume this will be the case every year.

The board would like to continue these efforts and is committed to maintaining a regular boat replacement schedule, providing dependable equipment for every program practice and ensuring the club has a reliable truck and trailer available for transporting our boats and equipment. That is why, the board is asking you to help us carry these commitments into 2018 and beyond by contributing to meeting our $50,000 fundraising goal between March 2017 and February 2018.

We hope all of you share the board’s commitment to excellence both on and off the water. Gifts of all sizes, both great and small, are truly appreciated and will combine together to make us all ready to row!
