Case Crew Wish List - 2016

wish list

This page contains the current wish list items for the team. As we all know the team cannot function without the support of alumni, parents and friends. From time to time the team needs certain items to keep functioning in tip-top shape.

This wish list was provided by the coaches with the intention of making a significant difference to what they want to accomplish this spring season. If you would like to contribute one of the item -- gaining a nice tax deduction at the same time -- please contact Doug Rathburn for more details.

We are always in need of larger gifts for the coaching endowment and replacing shells in our fleet. However, the intent of this list is to also have a broad range of ideas across many price points for alumni, parents and friends to consider. Please consider a gift today!

Annual Rack Rent & Insurance for One Shell


$500 each
This is the core of what we do. We provide premier rowing equipment to our student athletes, and they need to be stored and insured.

Coach Endowment Contribution

7 Gifts!

Any amount.
We are actively trying to build up our coach endowment. Current fund is now about $85,000 and pays 5% of the principal to the team each year. This is also the only area where we can coordinate a company match.

Spring Training Fund

2 Gifts!

Any amount.
Spring training trips are the norm, and very effective for building early season speed. Also, the team often scrimmages other teams during this week to build valuable racing experience. Gifts to this fund are an effective way for parents to help the team get to spring break and get some tax advantages at the same time!
