The Purdue Crew team holds annual “Rent-A-Rower” fund-raiser 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.

We plan to hold five fundraisers in 2022, one per day on

October 1st, October 22nd, October 29th, November 12th, and November 20th;

each one starting at 9:00 AM and spanning until 2:00 PM. Each rower requested is a $85.00 donation and works up to five hours at your discretion.
