Contributions from Friends of Dartmouth Rowing provide the vast majority of the funding for the team's two annual training trips, equipment (no small matter - a single, eight-person racing shell costs nearly $50K), and other vital needs that cannot be covered by the College's budget but are essential to operating first-class varsity programs.
Your support of the Friends of Dartmouth Rowing will ensure that the student-rowers at Dartmouth have the ability to continue tradition, in the boathouse and on the water, long into the future.
