About the campaign

Sarasota Crew has a goal to make rowing accessible to all Sarasota youth regardless of their financial situation. Rowing is the vehicle Sarasota Crew uses to develop youth into student-athletes who through their personal development acquire the self-esteem, athleticism, discipline and confidence to be more successful in school and in life. We know that all youth will benefit from this positive developmental experience.

We offer scholarships, based on demonstrable need via an application process, which covers all or a portion of the tuition. In 2016, scholarships accounted for approximately 15% of our High School Tuition income. Our goal is to increase scholarship funding and to collaborate with more local organizations to make rowing accessible to all interested youth.

In addition, we do our best to never turn away an athlete who wants to attend a regatta.  Supporting the scholarship fund will allow us to have every athlete on the water at the races!
