CRRC is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt volunteer organization, committed to promoting an understanding and appreciation of the sport of rowing through it’s middle school and high school Learn-to-Row programs, Junior (high school) competitive rowing program, and WeCanRow program for female cancer survivors.
CRRC’s business model is organized to generate sufficient income from program fees and rack rentals to cover annual operating expenses. CRRC does not include equipment purchases, scholarships or boathouse construction/improvement expenses in the operating budget. CRRC fund raises separately for equipment purchases, scholarships and boathouse capital improvements. In addition to fundraising, support for CRRC comes from community sponsors and individual donors.
Rowing boats and oars are expensive, so Camp Randall manages their fleet carefully, selling our older equipment and buying new or lightly used equipment on an on-going basis. Boat naming opportunities are available for significant donors.
Camp Randall Rowing Club is committed to making rowing accessible to all. The club offers limited financial assistance to participants in the Junior Competitive, Learn-to-Row and We-Can-Row Programs. The Scholarship Fund is sustained by fundraising, grants and donations.
Support our Erg-a-thon
The CRRC Erg-A-Thon is held during the winter season and is one of the club’s most successful fundraising events. During this “marathon of erging”, ergs (rowing machines) are set up in the boat house, and rowers log at least 10,000 meters. Rowers collect pledges during the two months prior to the event, and spectators can also donate on the spot while the rowers are erging. The erg-a-thon has enabled the club to purchase a truck, boats, oars, and other essential equipment. This is our main fundraising event of the year and ensures that our Junior rowers continue to have the equipment necessary to compete. Dates will be announced shortly.
