In conjunction with Wilson Crew 's 35th Anniversary in 2020, the Wilson Crew Booster Executive Committee has launched a Capital Campaign - SWEEP FOR SUCCESS - to achieve our vision of a nationally-ranked public high school rowing team that reflects the diversity of the nation’s capital.
New equipment and scholarship money are critical to us achieving our vision and your gift today supports both goals. Give a donation today to fund our new Girls Resolute 8 and two new sets of oars, and the first $2,000 in donations will be matched with a 3x donation to the scholarship fund!
Please see below the case for your support and the donor recognition levels.
Wilson High School is proud to be the only DC public school to field a rowing team. Our belief in the power of rowing to teach discipline, teamwork, and time-management began 35 years ago and has grown every year since. Today 125 students participate in Wilson Crew programs. Our success has enabled us to grow beyond our capacity!
To achieve our vision, we need to fund diversity scholarships for our student-athletes and upgrade our equipment. Your gift to the Wilson Crew Capital Campaign will allow us to offer partial and full scholarships to 15 students each year. And, while we wish crew required just a pair of running shoes or a swimsuit, it doesn’t. Your gift will enable Wilson Crew to have the same high-quality equipment that private school students in the region enjoy. We are currently raising funds for a new Resolute 8 for the Varsity Girls and two new sets of oars.
