Why Give to ARC?

Over the last two years, we have:

  • Moved into our new spacious and multi-purpose boathouse.
  • Created the circumstances for the success of our on-site vendors; Congress Avenue Kayaks, Alta’s Café and RoFit.
  • Hired two full-time coaching positions: Joe Carlson, Adult Head Coach and Austin Work, Juniors Head Coach, as well as several part-time coaches including Marty Zuehlke, Masters and Club Crews Coach.
  • Purchased 13 new boats – from singles to eights.

ARC continues to provide our city no-cost rowing instruction through several outreach programs. We have:

  • Introduced thousands of school age children to rowing each year.
  • Worked weekly with intellectually challenged adults from all over the city.
  • Offer youth rowing five days a week during the summer.
  • Been in the process of developing school day and adaptive rowing programs.
  • Through our energy and generosity, raised money for other non-profits including Breast Cancer Research and Food In Tummies (FIT).

We continue to host major regattas. Last year, we:

  • Hosted over 1,300 Heart of Texas participants, 1,100 Head of the Colorado participants and 600 Texas Rowing Championship participants.
