Rowing Boat Shell Campaign

In addition to yearly fundraising through the Diplomat Athletic Club, the rowing team is looking to purchase two new shells this year: a (1x) single to be used by both the men’s and women’s programs and an (8+) eight. This will only be possible with the generous support of our alumni, parents and friends.

Fundraising for both shells will total $50,000 ($10,000 for the 1x has been secured; $40,000 remains for the 8+). A naming opportunity for the 8+ is available and a $20K+ gift will guarantee this opportunity; however, gifts of all sizes will make an impact.

Gifts toward the shells can be made online at Once there, select “Diplomat Athletics” in the menu and be sure to specify "Rowing - Shell" in the space provided. 

For more information about making your gift, contact Katie Crowe Wood, director of athletic advancement, at 717-358-4834 or
