Support HRCR

We've kicked off our 2024 season and rowing with HRCR is free only through the generous donations that support it. That's why we're looking to raise $15,000 this spring season to support essential HRCR operations! Rowing for More in 2024 donations will help to expand our programming and make rowing available for more people in our community.

Harlem River Community Rowing is a volunteer-run nonprofit organization committed to offering affordable rowing and expanding waterfront access options for all adult New Yorkers. To make our programs as accessible as possible, all HRCR programming is free of cost to participants. On average, participation in one session costs about $15 (equipment, insurance, coaching), and we rely on donations to cover these expenses. Donations to HRCR are tax deductible - if you are able, please consider donating to HRCR to support the only adults-only, no cost rowing program for all New Yorkers.

HRCR also has a small but mighty development team who is looking to partner with the local NYC community on fundraising and advocacy opportunities. To contact the team (or to volunteer with us!), please reach out to
