Brooks School Crew Endowment Challenge!
To inspire the support needed to fully endow the Brooks School crew program, a lead donor has challenged the Brooks community to raise $1,500,000. This is an incredible opportunity to impact this program with your gift to this endowment. Join us! Make your gift today.
— Athletes hoping to participate in pre- and post-season travel opportunities, regardless of their financial circumstances.
The impact of a crew endowment
Supporting an 80-person team requires a significant amount of funding. Assuming a 4% annual draw, a $1,500,000 crew endowment provides nearly $60,000 in vital funds for the annual operation of our expansive crew and waterfront program.
The crew endowment will support:
— Replenishment of crew shells on a 16-year cycle.
— Operating costs associated with our new boathouse, docks, boats, rowing tanks and equipment.
We will display personalized plaques beneath the 94 pegs in the boathouse's two team rooms.
To secure a personalized plaque:
— Alumni who graduated within the past 10 years must donate $2,500 to the endowment.
— Alumni who graduated before 2013 must donate $5,000 to get a plaque.
Don't miss this great naming opportunity!
As one of our longest standing programs at Brooks, the endowment will provide stability and growth for the program. Thank you for your consideration.
