1985 Society

Community Rowing, Inc. 1985 Society


The 1985 Society acknowledges those who have chosen to support Community Rowing, Inc. through a legacy or planned gift. For most of us, 1985 was not that long ago, but looking back at our founding year enables us to appreciate how much has been built. Since CRI's humble beginnings in 1985 we have grown to be a leader in public access rowing and strived to bring greater diversity, equity and inclusivity to the sport of rowing. By making a choice to become a member of the 1985 Society, you are choosing to support CRI's future sustainability.
