DONATE

Rowing is an expensive sport, and our membership rates don't really cover the costs of operation. Belonging to WARC costs members about $12 per week over a year, but the club's costs run far beyond that amount to include equipment, consumables, travel, coaching, insurance, transport, administration and everything else (our never-ending requirement for spare bolts and cleaning vinegar, for example!)

Thanks to the Australian Sports Foundation, WARC has been able to establish three projects which allow friends of the club to make a tax deductible donation to our core activities.

The WA Rowing Club en route to Sydney International Rowing Regatta 

CURRENTLY OPEN

Every year, Western Australian athletes travel from Perth to selection regattas in the Eastern States as part of their pathway to elite level competition.

Most WARC athletes study or work full time, as well as training in the order of 12 times a week to compete at this level. It takes a huge emotional, physical and financial cost that does not need to be borne by those athletes lucky enough to row for a Sydney-based club.

To support our athletes in these endeavours, visit our project on the ASF website here. 

Don't forget to tell us about your donation by emailing president@warowingclub.org so we can thank you and keep you up to date with the team's activities.

Deck fund 


CURRENTLY OPEN

Rowing kit is expensive. Seriously expensive. From entry level to elite, no rowing kit comes without a respectable price tag.

WARC has had a comprehensive boat turn-over policy which has maximised the appropriate use of our limited resources.

From our two brand new specially-designed learn-to-row vessels to the pride of our fleet, the new Empacher men's eight, every boat is paid for through fundraising and elbow-grease.

To support WARC to keep the fleet up to date with the best gear, visit our project on the AFS website here.

WARC is undertaking a $100,000 project to replace the aging launch deck, which is slippery, degrading and poorly designed. It's not even long enough to launch an eight and the sight of a rower striding off the end is a regular source of hilarity.

As hilarious as that is, the downside is the deck is nothing short of dangerous and has claimed many skinned and bruised legs over the years.

Funding has been supported by a $50,000 grant from the State Government's Heritage office, but it won't be enough to get the job done.
