River City Crew (RCC) is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization run mostly by volunteers and receives no dedicated funding from external sources. Entirely member & donor-supported, the club relies on participation or membership fees from each rower as well as various fundraising activities, equipment donations, individual monetary donations & corporate sponsorships in order to operate successfully.
RCC is grateful to its sponsors and donors who give equipment donations, individual monetary donations & corporate sponsorships to ensure the continuing success of River City Crew.
In order to assist RCC in garnering funds to cover the cost of equipment and other expenses, you may participate in this process in several ways: through our on-going fundraising activities, through donations to either specific or general capital campaigns, or through sponsorships.
NOTE: Donations are often tax deductible, so please consider becoming a donor to our organization or sponsoring the team!
As many of you may already know, rowing is a very expensive sport! We are constantly looking for new sponsors, donations & special fundraising campaigns to keep our club growing. Below is an outline of our corporate sponsorship packages we offer to potential companies! If any of these options are attractive to you, please e-mail Tom O'Rourke at email@example.com for more information.
PEINERT X25 SINGLE DONATED BY CHIP VOSMICKApril 4, 2008
A Peinert X25 light/midweight single was donated to NMRC in the spring of 2008. We are very grateful to Mr. & Mrs. Chip Vosmick for their donation. The boat was immediately put to good use and has been rowed to winning times in the Jr. Woman's Single at the Head of the James, James River Sprints and Rockett's Landing Regatta.
TWO EIGHTS DONATED BY WAKE ROWINGAugust 24, 2006
In 2006, at the inception of North Mooreland Rowing Club, two eights were donated by Wake Rowing of North Carolina. Although these boats were missing riggers and seats Coach O'Rourke was able to trade one of the boats to James River Rowers for the missing equipment from an older, damaged boat. This Kaschper eight, now in good shape, became the nucleus of the NMRC equipment. NMRC crew got its start through the generous aid of Wake Rowing and Hank Holswade, the James River coach.
In the Summer of 2009, at the request of the team parents and Board of Directors, Tom O'Rourke agreed to move into a full-time position as Executive Director and Head Coach.
