St Ignatius Chicago Rowing is a 501(c)3 charitable organization that relies entirely on dues and private donations. The team is composed of a diverse group of students from all over the Chicagoland area. The operating expenses are paid for by member dues. These dues also support a scholarship program so that all students, regardless of parental income, can participate on the team. However, in order to buy new boats and other equipment, the team relies solely on the dues, private donations and an annual auction. While the team takes good care of its equipment, as old boats get obsolete, new boats must be purchased and they are very expensive. Your goodwill and generous contributions will help us keep our St. Ignatius team rowing. A heartfelt thank you!
