Williamsburg Rowing Center - Donations

Your gift matters!


Since 2014, the Williamsburg Boat Club (WBC) has provided a safe and challenging, high-fitness rowing environment for over 200 school-aged students and adults. Over 25 juniors have gone on to collegiate rowing programs.  We've had boats medal in Regional Championship regattas, qualify and compete in the US Rowing National Championships and we've had rowers selected for Olympic Development teams. Our commitment to their growth has been unflappable and the coaching staff continues to grow and develop the most coveted rowing program in the region.  WBC strives to become a center of excellence for rowing, for coaching, community participation and donations to the center will support all of this. Funding the needed growth of this organization is primarily to provide the best and most consistent opportunities for all rowers whether their dream is to develop friendships in a competitive environment or to go on to row in college or the olympics.  With your help, the WBC is ensuring that our athletes have a place to call their own and to continue our commitment to their success.


Gifts to the WBC will continue to provide for athlete development, community outreach, facility maintenance & enhancements to create Adaptive Rowing programs, equipment repair & replacement, coach salaries, travel to away regattas, and our most ambitious goal yet; to create a new Boathouse/Rowing Center for our WBC athletics. 


The athletes' continued success depends on donors who share their appetite for grit and dedication to rowing. It takes a village.
