Canberra Rowing Club was founded in 1964 with the aim to create an environment that supports an active, inclusive community of rowers at all levels of participation and competition.
The Canberra Rowing Club Foundation was set up to support the ongoing needs of the club and the local rowing community by enabling club members and supporters to make tax deductible donations towards the improvement of all elements of the club and its facilities.
Specifically, donations to the Canberra Rowing Club Foundation will support the costs associated with providing members and the community with access to leading facilities, equipment, training and coaching and will assist the club with costs associated with local and interstate regatta competition.
A key project of the Canberra Rowing Club Foundation is the fundraising for the club’s new boat shed.
The boat shed is the beating heart of any rowing club and the Canberra Rowing Club boat shed is no exception. Our well-worn walkways, walls and ceilings stacked with boats and oars and busy morning manoeuvres are a testament to our club’s ability to attract and retain members and have seen many years of success and accomplishment in the 40 years that we have been located in Yarralumla Bay.
We have now reached a critical milestone in our history – it’s time to redevelop our boat shed to ensure that the next 40 years can accommodate our growing member base, our growing fleet and also offer all members and the community, a safe, functional and modern facility.
To achieve our vision to be a leading community rowing club in Australia in terms of support, participation and performance across a diverse group of rowers, we need a new facility. Importantly – the club needs your help to see this project come to life. By making a tax deductible donation to this project today you will be helping current and future members row out of the best facilities on the lake and you will have played an important part of our club’s rich history.
Donate today and support our vision for the future of CRC.
