UC Davis Crew - Support

Support the Crew

Davis Men's Rowing operates as a club program, and as such generates most of its budget through dues and fundraising. The annual costs of a sport such as rowing include coaching salaries, travel costs for regattas, equipment repair and maintenance, uniforms and other required travel gear, race entry fees, etc. The program also strives to add new boats, oars, coaching launches, ergometers, and other auxiliary equipment on a regular basis, in order to give the athletes both a safe training environment and a level playing field against the varsity programs we compete against regularly.

In recent years the crew has established two endowment fund to offset some of the costs of rowing for the athletes. The McGinity endowment, named in honor of Sean Thomas McGinity from the novice class of 1993, provides dues scholarships for athletes in financial need. The Rybicki endowment, established in honor of Matthew Rybicki in 2008, supports athletes with travel expenses. The goal of the program is to grow these endowments in order to offset even more of the financial burden on the athletes in the future.

Whether to help fund our yearly operating costs, or to grow the endowment for future years, all donations are greatly appreciated.
