27% of $70,000 goal
For 30 years, UA Crew, in partnership with Upper Arlington Schools, has offered a unique experience for student athletes in our community. Being a club sport in the fall, and a scholastic sport in the spring, UA Crew has a special challenge of having to purchase and maintain very expensive equipment and pay for coaching staff through the fundraising efforts of the Crew Board, friends and family. This year, our goal is to raise $100,000 to help replace aging equipment.
With the effort of many parents and some generous corporate sponsors, we have already raised over $30,000 in 2022. We have been able to purchase several new shoes for current boats, repair all of the cox boxes, and purchased several new ergs for our erg room at the high school. Recently, we placed an order and made a down payment for our first new boat in nearly 5 years!
So, in order to raise the additional funds to meet our goal in order to keep our athletes in safe and competitive equipment, while keeping team fees as moderate as possible, we hope that you will consider supporting our team in any number of ways: name the 8-shell, name a 4-shell/quad, name a 2-shell/pair, name a seat, name an oar, etc.
You can name the items as a solo donation, or get a group together and put your name on the item for its lifetime. It is a great way to support the team, and commemorate your sponsorship of this great sport in UA. We are 501c3, so your donation is tax deductible! And, if your company matches donations, now is a great time to support the program.
