Fundraising and Donations


Wakefield Crew depends on the support of the community, including individuals, organizations, and corporate partners, to help fund regatta fees, uniforms, equipment, scholarships, and more.

Fundraising Opportunities

Every dollar raised is used to help us keep the cost of the program down for our rowers.  You can either make a general contribution to help us with the general expenses of running the program or specify to have your contribution used to help fund scholarships for rowers. GENERAL and SCHOLARSHIP FUNDS

Coaches' Wishlist

The COACHES' WISHLIST includes a variety items from tools to ergs that the coaches' have identified. Check out list year's list!

Tag Day And Erg Relay

The TAG DAY & ERG RELAY events are generally our biggest fundraisers of the year.  Kicking off with the ERG RELAY and culminating in a neighborhood TAG DAY event, rowers and coxswains are reaching out to family, friends, and the local community to reach our $35,000 goal.  If you want to support a specific rower, please donate to the ERG RELAY.  If you are just a fan of Wakefield Crew and want to support the team, please support TAG DAY.  We are grateful for the support this community shows every year.

Restaurant Nights

Local restaurants in the area agree to donate a portion of their sales on a designated day in support of our team. Watch for notices about the next event. If you have a favorite neighborhood restaurant that you think would be interested in supporting the team contact us at
