You can support the Boathouse by purchasing fun(d)raiser tickets. Admission is $25. You can pay at the door or if you prefer to buy tickets online, go to the donate page on this (Villagecommunityboathouse.org) website and click on the donate button. Make a $25 donation and print your receipt. Your receipt will serve as a ticket. When you donate on the website, there is a place where you can click for “Special Instructions” after you have given in your credit card info. Just write how many tickets you have purchased & the names of the people who the tickets are for (so we can have the names on the guest list at the door).
If you can’t join us on Saturday, October 19, donations are always welcome. We are also looking for donations of raffle items for our potluck raffle, as well as finger food for the party. For more information, send an email to [email protected].
Your donations help to cover operating expenses for Community Rowing programming at our main facility on Pier 40 in Manhattan, as well as our Brooklyn operations in Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Our Community Rowing sessions are always free and open to the public.
VCB hosts a number of high school and college rowing programs at Pier 40, including the Stuyvesant High School and Harbor School, as well as BMCC, and Eugene Lang College. We also host an annual Youth Race where rowing teams from all over New York and New England gather to cheer and compete.
We also need funds to purchase materials to build and repair boats in our shop space on Pier 40 and at other sites around the city. Our fleet consists of about 20 boats, most of them built by students and based on traditional New York Harbor designs.
VCB is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit and a member of US Rowing. We have no paid staff and our operation is run by a core of dedicated volunteers.
