Ergathon Fundraising Tips

The AB Crew Ergathon is one of our most successful fundraising activities. Here are some tips.

How do I start?

Contact your family, friends and neighbors (not current rowers). Tell them why AB Crew is important to you and why the team needs their support (the team does not receive any funding from the schools or towns, the team is accessible to all and provides financial need based scholarships). Include links to in all correspondence. Always thank people for their support, AB Crew appreciates all donations.

How do I get to $250?

  • 10 gifts of $25 = $250
  • 2 gifts of $50.00 + 4 gifts of $25 + 5 gifts of $10 = $250
  • 5 gifts of $10 + 10 gifts of $20 = $250

There are many ways to reach and exceed your goal, be creative and have fun! A donation in any amount is appreciated!

Many companies match charitable donations, ask donors if their company will match their gift.

Are donations tax deductible?

YES! Arlington-Belmont Crew is a non-profit organization 501(c)(3) and is eligible to receive charitable donations from individuals, corporations and foundations. Individual donations are tax deductible according to IRS regulations. AB Crew is eligible to receive corporate matching gifts.
