#GivingTuesday Hosted by UCRAF

November 25, 2021

UCRAF, acting as the official fundraising agent for UCRC, is excited to announce the beginning of our public fundraiser!

The mission of University of Cincinnati Rowing Alumni and Friends (UCRAF) is to enable excellence for the UC Rowing Team, its athletes, and coaches by...

  • Connecting alumni and other supporters of UCRC.
  • Building relationships with current & former athletes, coaches, university administrators, and the local rowing community.
  • Raising funds to support the team and improve the rowing site.
  • Owning and managing the Kellogg Avenue rowing site.

Founded in 2015, UCRAF is a registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit and is the official fundraising agent for UCRC. Our organization is 100% volunteer operated! The organization is managed by a Board of Trustees (currently Rolf Linder, Tim Garry, and Nathan Martell and soon to be expanded). The UCRAF Advisory Board, composed of the alumni volunteers listed below, works with the Trustees to carry out the work of the organization. This work includes but is not limited to maintaining the rowing site, growing the alumni community, providing support to the team's student executive board and coaches, and fundraising.

There are well over 1,000 UC Rowing Alumni, families, and friends. Many have drifted away over the years. We're aiming to change that.

Think about this:

If 100% of our alumni chose to donate $1 per week, UCRAF could:

1. Purchase a brand new Hudson 8+ EVERY YEAR or
2. Reduce athlete dues BY HALF for a team of 50 athletes!

Whatever you choose to give, we appreciate your support.
