WMRC 50/50 Campaign

Can you guess how old the current WMRC fleet is? Most boats range between the 10-15 year old range. While we love each and every boat, this will negatively impact the team in upcoming years. The team has launched their 2017 50/50 campaign in order to raise money for a new boat. Donations to the team will be split between a fund for new boats and the WMRC Endowment Fund, serving their short-term needs while ensuring the longevity of the club. The 2017 goal is to raise $25,000 including $12,500 for a new King 8+ and $12,500 to contribute to the endowment.

Why should YOU donate? Even though you do not go out on the water everyday like you did at William and Mary, this is an opportunity for you to support current rowers and provide future stability for hundreds of students to come. In 2016 with this campaign, we were able to raise enough for this new King 8+ for the Women’s team. Let’s do it again for the Men’s team!

WMRC has offered the following thank you gifts for their most supportive alumni, friends, and family.  We hope that you will reflect on the many fond memories you have of WMRC, Williamsburg, and the Chickahominy and consider donating.  Any gift, no matter how big or small, will help advance the program and is much appreciated.

Thanks to the donors from the 2016 50-50 Campaign! Let’s do it again!
