Pull Hard, Pull Together: A Fundraising Campaign to Strengthen CRI's Future.
Board Match! The first $25,000 in donations will be matched by the CRI Board of Directors -- Make your gift now!
We are joining the national movement of nonprofit organizations celebrating #GivingTuesdayNow and asking for your help to not simply survive this pandemic but come back stronger than before.
Community Rowing has been a pillar in Boston and the rowing world for more than thirty-five years. We welcome thousands of rowers to the boathouse every week and are committed to making rowing accessible to all. CRI is the largest public access boathouse in North America: A home for all who wish to experience the joy and benefits of rowing.
Like so many community organizations around the world, we are being challenged by COVID-19. It has prompted us to implement new procedures and change our operations in ways we had not thought possible.
Our mission, centered on inclusion and support, is being temporarily redefined through this time of challenges and limitations. Our goal is to stay as prepared as possible for the day we can return to the water. While on the water operations at CRI have temporarily halted, we are working to stay connected to our community. We established CRI upstream a free resource of live and on demand workouts and other resources. Additionally, our youth competitive, para, military and Let’s Row programs have established virtual training programs.
CRI has had to make difficult decisions in recent weeks regarding staff and programming, and it is only with your support that we will get back to a sense of normalcy at the boathouse. We ask you to Pull Hard and Pull Together! Reach out to your networks, explain what CRI means to you, and contribute what you can to ensure that CRI is a presence on the Charles for another thirty years.
As a way to acknowledge and share appreciation for donors who support CRI on GivingTuesdayNow, we have established special ways to say thank you!
All donors will receive a one year subscription to Rowing News Magazine.
