Donations help us pursue our mission.

Financial donations are used to buy equipment for our rowing programs, to advocate safety, to develop youth programs and teaching programs, and promote community involvement in our wonderful river resources.

2019 Fundraising Campaign

It is so exciting to see how far PORPA has come in the 5 short years since we began! We have a fleet of 6 boats with oars, a trailer, racks for storage, and coxswain and safety equipment!

Way to go CREW!

Each season there are maintenance and new equipment needs to keep our rowing equipment in good shape and our experience the best it can be. This fundraising campaign challenges us all to invest in the club we love to ensure that we continue to have access to the equipment we rely on and to provide a solid foundation for future members.

To participate you can sponsor one or several items or donate a specific amount (suggested $100 minimum). Just think, if each of our approximately 20 current members pledged $200 each we would be most of the way to our goal of $5000!

**Remember, PORPA is a 501 (c) 3 organization, so the club will provide you a receipt for any donations you make.
