Thank you for supporting Rowing Archives. This December and January, we need to raise enough to keep operating next year and restore more of the remarkable photos, films and materials we have in the archives. Every donation, small or large, is important and goes toward preserving and sharing rowing history. We keep costs and overhead very low through generous in-kind donations for legal assistance, secure storage, and design work, but our operating expenses have so far exceeded our donations every year. Restoring, digitizing and editing film is expensive! Our goal is to raise a modest $25,000 to cover our projected 2019 expenses, which would be sufficient to restore and digitize more than 1000 films, photos and slides we have in the archives.
Rowing Archives has leveraged significant community donations to support rowing for youths and adults. Foremost among our efforts in 2017/18, we donated archival footage to Dunn Lumber in exchange for their providing all the building materials for the Joe Rantz Memorial Boathouse on Lake Stevens, which will serve hundreds of rowers in Snohomish County. Rowing Archives also discovered and supplied almost all the original black and white footage of the 1936 Husky crew practicing in Seattle, New York and Berlin for the PBS Documentary “The Boys of ‘36?”
