Thank you to this group of very special alumni supporters!!

It takes a village to keep the boathouse doors open and the UCI Rowing Program running smoothly. There are three sources of funding for the Crew.


Each current athlete pays $1500 per year in Club dues. This covers uniforms and local travel to California regattas.

Rec Department

The UCI Anteater Recreation Department contributes a rigger’s salary to keep the boats in racing condition and they cover the maintenance and utilities at the boathouse. Most of this funding was made possible from the generous endowment funded by Henry T. Nicholas, III in 1999.

Friends of UCI Rowing

The program remains a competitive force in Club rowing with the help of the Friends of UCI Rowing. We aim to raise $150,000 per year to support the crew. This pays for top-tier coaching and allows for some travel expenses to regattas like ACRA (Georgia) and the Henley (UK). FoUCIR also helps to fund the purchase of new boats and equipment.

With only 100 alumni pledging to match a student’s fees each year, we can lock in our support and fulfill our pledge to “pay it forward” to future generations of elite Anteater oarsmen and women.
