Om Saturday 6th April, our cub President, Sarah Cook, officially launched the 2019 Patron’s Program as part of our ongoing efforts to raise funds for the club through the Boat Chapter of the University of Sydney Sports Foundation.
Sarah noted the huge effort made by many alumni in supporting the Boatshed Appeal over the past three years. The requirement for the club to contribute a large amount to this objective meant that fundraising towards expanding and upgrading our fleet has had to be suspended over this period.
The launch of the Patron’s Program will see our efforts now concentrated on fundraising for our equipment needs. As President Cook noted, we will need at least our target of $600,000 to meet our projected needs over the next 4-5 years.
Alumni and Parents who can contribute are urged to contact one of our Committee listed on the Foundation page or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Sarah announced after the Patron’s Cocktail Party t,hat $190K had now been committed or pledged toards our initial target of $600K.
