Why Donate to Norcal?

Norcal works hard to maintain the quality of equipment and increase safety for our athletes.  Since Norcal began in 2000, we have grown to be a leader in rowing in CA and we are working to build greater diversity, equity and inclusivity to the sport of rowing.  Norcal builds bonds that lasts a lifetime.  Norcal athletes work hard together creating a sense of purpose, self-discipline and relentless hard work.

Norcal Crew, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, depends upon donations from parents of rowers, alumni, and community members to continue its mission of not only training athletes for the highest level of competition but also to open its doors to any athlete who wants to be a part of the organization. Norcal is currently able to provide a quality experience to anyone, regardless of their athletic background, natural ability, or financial situation, while still being nationally competitive

Equipment Sponsorships

Our rowers compete against the best crews in the nation using top-tier equipment, including racing shells by Vespoli, Empacher and Pocock. While Norcal diligently maintains its fleet, all boats must be replaced over time. Additionally, as Norcal’s membership expands, more boats of all sizes are needed. Norcal Crew relies on the generosity of families who have the means and the desire to provide for the program’s growing fleet. Please contact Beth Anderson at or 650-993-9193 to sponsor a new boat for our fleet.
