Each year for a chosen month we donate 100% of our monthly membership profits to a noble cause. We have been able to support several charitable causes through Science of Rowing, working with other organizations to sponsor opportunities for others in the sport of rowing. Stay tuned via social media and our email list for annual events and more.
2023 December Fundraiser
We have partnered with London Youth Rowing (LYR) to support their program. LYR focuses on encouraging disadvantaged young people to be active and improve their physical, social, and mental well-being. LYR was founded in 2004 by Jim Downing and since then has grown by leaps and bounds. In 2022 alone, they had a total of 4,422 youths involved in their programs, with 57% of participants being black and minority ethnicity participants. 41% of all participants in 2022 were young girls.
2022 November Fundraiser
We are thrilled to announce that we raised $1444.12 for our 2022 Annual Fundraiser. These funds will go to support the Ukrainian Rowing Federation.
2021 USRowing Convention Scholarship
We partnered with the Steady State Network (SSN) to offer a scholarship to the entire 2021 virtual USRowing Convention. SSN selected Dani Dewitt as the recipient. Will presented on Day 1 of the Convention, “Masters Monday,” about strength training for masters rowers.
2021 November Fundraiser
We partnered with the George Pocock Rowing Foundation’s Camp Lucy program to support a summer camp program for middle school girls in the Seattle, WA area who might not otherwise be introduced to rowing. Camp Lucy includes inclusive outreach/recruitment, transportation assistance, meals during camp, and an introduction to erging, rowing, and physical fitness, as well as leadership curriculum and mentorship with the adult coaches. We raised $797 from new monthly memberships, as well as individual donations from Will, Blake, and Joe.

2020 USRowing Convention Scholarship
We partnered with the Steady State Network (SSN) to offer a scholarship to the training track day at the 2020 virtual USRowing Convention. SSN selected physical therapist Dr. Lisa Russell (Lowe), already a Science of Rowing member and later a guest on Volume 2, Issue 5 (May, 2021). Lisa rows out of RBC/CRI in Boston, MA, rowing and working with para rowing. Will, Blake, and Joe presented on the training track day as a trio, about strength training scheduling for rowers on the annual, weekly, and daily levels.
2020 November Fundraiser
We partnered with the George Pocock Rowing Foundation and the new “A Most Beautiful Thing” Inclusion Fund to support education, scholarship, and mentorship programs to get more kids rowing on the water, focusing on non-traditional communities and communities of color where youth face barriers to participation in the sport. We helped raise $750 from new monthly memberships, as well as individual donations from Will, Blake, and Joe.
