The Friends of Brookline Rowing is the non-profit parents’ group which provides financial and volunteer support for Brookline Rowing. With the support of its members and fundraising events the FoBR pay for expenses not covered by Brookline High School.
- Purchase of boats
- Maintenance of boats
- Boat insurance
- Cox Boxes
- Salaries for 4 of the 6 coaches
The FoBR food committee provides healthy food and drinks to BHS rowers and coxswains at most races, supported by your food fee.
FoBR runs two major fund raising events each year. The Erg-a-thon (Fall) and Crew-a-thon (Spring) raise the funds necessary to fund the program and provide scholarships to make sure that rowing is within reach of all those who wish to participate. Additional contributions are always welcome.
FoBR is a 100% volunteer organization. This program is funded in part by a grant from the Brookline Community Foundation.
