As a IRS documented 501(c)(3) non-profit Western Reserve Rowing Association is dependent upon the generosity of club members and the non-rowing community as well. WRRA has many options available to contribute to the success of the club through fundraising and sponsorships.

Your generosity will help us to provide quality programming and enable growth impacting both our rowing experience and the Cleveland community. WRRA greatly appreciates all of its past donors throughout the years. All current members have benefited from your generosity.


To complete its mission, WRRA relies on volunteers and contributors. Dues and fees alone are not sufficient to cover the cost of the programs. Boats have been generously donated or funded by donors within the WRRA community or Cleveland community members.



Western Reserve Rowing Association’s (WRRA) Summer Rowing League (SRL) includes over 500 adult rowers who are active in the community. Your sponsorship dollars help fund the many expenses of rowing in Cleveland and community outreach programs.

Name a Shell

WRRA provides an opportunity to name new rowing shells as they are added to the fleet, and to sponsor individual oars or seats in new and existing boats.


Naming Rights Contributions are tax deductible. WRRA will provide a Letter of Donation.


Single scull - $1,250
Double/Pair - $1,750
Quad/Four - $2,500
Eight - $3,500


Wakeless launch - $1,500
Oars (set of 8) - $350 or $45/oar
Seats (for 8 seats) - $200 or $25/seat

The remunerations associated with each boat, seat, or oar are as follows:

  • Exposure on the Cuyahoga River, typically 15-20 hours per week.

  • WRRA will make christening ceremonies available.

  • Your name on the equipment above for as long as it stays in our Club, typically 8-10 years. 

  • If the boat leaves our fleet, you may apply to the Board to roll over the existing name. 

  • Your name or company name will be listed on the WRRA website as a generous contributor. 

  • As we retire oars, those who sponsored an oar will have the opportunity to take it home.



Many of our boats are taken to compete on the national stage including Head of the Charles, Head of the Hooch, and USRowing Masters Nationals, in addition to regional and local regattas.
