ANNUAL FUNDS AND SCHOLARSHIPS

The number one way to support Cal Crew is through the annual funds and scholarships listed below. They are designed so your entire donation may be made available to Coach Teti for the current rowing season. This is our primary need. Your donation to one of these options is tax deductible, qualifies for football and basketball seating programs, Bear Backer points, and is matched dollar for dollar by a challenge match.

Cal Crew General Fund, Berry Memorial Fund
These funds provide Coach Teti total flexibility for equipment purchases, travel, additional scholarship funds, and other annual expenses.

Ky Ebright Scholarship, Lemmon Crew Scholarship, and Steve Gladstone Scholarship
These scholarships provide Coach Teti the necessary funds to aid and recruit the top junior oarsmen in the country and around the world.

Note: A small portion of all gifts to UC Regents is used to defray the costs of administering the funds.


JOIN THE FRIENDS OF CAL CREW

In addition to your donation, you may become a supporter of the Friends of Cal Crew by paying annual membership donation. Donations pay for the Friends of Cal Crew operations, fundraising, and social events throughout the year. If interested, make an additional separate payment, payable to The Friends of Cal Crew. Dues are tax deductible.

ENDOWED FUNDS AND SCHOLARSHIPS

Our endowed funds and scholarships provide the Crew with an annual base of approximately $440,000 each year. Donations to one of the listed endowments below help fulfill our ongoing goal to endow Crew forever. A percentage of your donation, in the form of annual return, becomes available to the Crew for the current rowing season. These funds are designed for larger gifts and planned giving. If you are interested in making a planned gift to Cal Crew, the Friends of Cal Crew will help put you in direct contact with the Athletics Development Office. Your donation to one of these funds or scholarships is tax deductible and counts for Bear Backer points.
