Fundraising and Donations

Funding from sponsorships and donations helps Wakefield Crew team purchase needed gear and support -- from boats and oars to bus transportation and scholarships to students. Below are a few of the ways to support the team.

Donate Now

You can also donate directly to our team through PayPal or credit card.  Under "Special Instruction" or "Add a note to your donation" please put your rower's name there so they will get credit!     

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

Tag Day & Erg Relay

The Tag Day & Erg Relay events are generally our biggest fundraisers of the year. Rowers will reach out to neighbors, friends and family to support them as they row thousands of meters to raise funds for the team.

Green Oar Society

Donors who donate the cost of an oar, roughly $350, become a member of our Green Oar Society and can choose a text to add on the shaft of the oar. The team purchases a few oars every year to meet the demand of the tough sport and a growing team. To learn more about joining Wakefield Crew's Green Oar Society, contact Treasurer Maggie Ryner -
