Through membership payments, fund-raising, and active participation of
parents, masters, and alumni members, OARS provides and maintains equipment
and related items necessary for carrying out the sport of rowing; provides coaches
needed to teach and improve technique and to advance the sport; provides for
transportation, lodging, and nutritional needs of all athletes for regattas.
OARS is a 501(c)(3) organization which means that your donation is tax deductible.
Please consider becoming a Sponsor for some of our programs, which are
described in this proposal. Each of these opportunities offers high value for
businesses looking to get involved in rowing with a well-established, community-minded team for a minimal investment.
