The Purdue Crew team holds annual Rent-A-Rower fundraiser where for a $85 donation, you can have a rower work for you for up to five hours. In past years, we have had requests for a variety of jobs, such as painting, building fences, and cleaning out basements and garages—we also take care of those dirty windows and autumn leaves. If you have a particularly big job, please request more than one rower to tackle the work. We have rowers from many fields at Purdue who are glad to do your more specialized work. Just ask!
The team is made up of approximately 150 student-athletes, who are hard-working and dedicated individuals at the university. They are willing to put in this extra time and effort to help you while helping their team financially. Our four Rent-a-Rower fundraiser dates for 2023 are:
Saturday, September 9
Saturday, October 21
Saturday, October 28
Saturday, November 11
Saturday, November 18
Each one starts at 9:00 AM and spanrs until 2:00 PM. Each rower requests an $85.00 donation and works up to five hours at your discretion.
Rowers may also be available outside of these dates/times, depending on availability. Inquiries may be sent to
