Bedford Crew is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides the team with the coaching, equipment, and facilities needed to operate.
This dynamic rowing program provides training for over seventy young men and women from Bedford NH High School. Our aim is to give every rower a seat on race day and an opportunity to be part of a hardworking team. We do not get any funds from the school district. All of our money comes from dues and fundraisers. Athlete fees and fundraising efforts have allowed the program to grow from one boat to eight in ten years. In 2019 Bedford Crew became an official varsity sport, and though no funding from the school is received, these hardworking athletes were honored with a varsity letter and recognition they deserve. However, there is one crucial element missing: a dock.
A dock allows for longer seasons and more time on the water. A dock entices qualified coaches. A dock allows athletes to practice safely. A dock ensures the longevity of the team. However, a dock will cost $88,000 and Bedford Crew will need to quickly raise $48,000 by July of 2020. Please help us reach our goal of 40K in 90 days to Launch a Legacy.
