Sponsorship Opportunities

Capital Rowing Club is actively seeking partners to help us ensure that rowing is available to all who are interested regardless of income.  Sponsorship of this volunteer-managed organization shows your support for:

  • youth athletics and academics for Junior rowers from all DC wards
  • active use of the Anacostia River
  • rowing as a multi-generational sport, life-long fitness and competition
  • adaptive competition for rowers with disabilities
  • community development of the Capitol Hill neighborhood

Capital seeks sponsors throughout the year. Our four annual events offer sponsors the opportunity to engage multiple times to local and non-local audiences.
