Help keep club rowing alive and thriving in Manhattan, KS!

This page features the many ways you can support the Kansas State Rowing Association, which governs the Manhattan Community Rowing Club, the Kansas State Men’s Crew, and Manhattan Junior Crew.

The simplest way to donate is to add KSRA as your charity of choice when you shop Amazon Smile (link below).

Or you can browse some of the repairs and replacements listed below that we’re working on at the boathouse.  Be sure to select the appropriate item or boat name of your choice once you click here:

Coaching Launch Motor

15hp Mercury Marine outboard motor

  • $1,000 (used)
    We have our eye on a motor being sold locally to go on the third launch shell the club owns. Having a third coaching launch would be a huge step forward in our ability to field larger teams!

Launch Motor $526 out of $1000

New Boat!

TBD Used 2-/x

  • $10,000 (estimate)
    The club has already received a lead gift toward purchasing a used double/pair for our teams to use in honor of former KSMC rower Lynn Walker. In the 70s, Lynn went to the Olympic trials in a double, and now he and his wife would like to give back to the club that started his rowing journey.

New Double/Pair $5500 out of $10,000
