GIVING TO UCSB ROWING
Participate in Rowing’s Success and Play An Important Role in Its Enduring Tradition at UCSB!
The generosity of alumni, parents, and friends has been instrumental to the success of the UCSB Rowing program. A combination of annual gifts used for training and competition needs and the purchase of new equipment such as boats, and those to our Fund the Oar endowment provide critical financial resources for so that the team can continue its tradition of excellence.
Double the impact of your gift to the Fund the Oar Endowment now through December 15, 2016. Through a $100,000 matching gift challenge provided by the generosity of friend of UCSB Rowing, John, your gift to the Fund the Oar will immediately have double the impact and help us increase our endowment to $500,000. We are in the final stretch, starting with a balance of approximately $27,000 in April of 2015 and now have a balance of approximately $337,000.
Every contribution to UCSB Rowing is important, adding to the collective overall impact to our program.
