Invite your employer to match your contribution!

Many companies in the Greater Philadelphia area have programs in place to match donations made by their employees to local 501(c)(3) organizations. As a registered non-profit, the staff at Newport Rowing Club would like to make this process as stress-free as possible! When you make a donation, please let us know your employer's name and how we can help.

If your firm does not have a matching program, no problem! Present the PDF below to your employer and give them the opportunity to become a corporate sponsor!

Switch to Amazon Smile!

Did you know Amazon has a charitable website? Amazon Smile donates 0.5% of the cost of all qualifying purchases to the non-profit of your choice. The website looks identical to and automatically links to your existing Amazon account. Head to and set "Newport Rowing Club" in Newport, DE as your charitable organization.

Then continue shopping as usual!

Who are you supporting?

In less than three (3) months the Newport Rowing Club went from just a dream to a full-fledged rowing club with a new fleet of boats, a boathouse, launches, oars, a coaching staff of 4, and more than 45 rowers. Today, NRC represents numerous middle schools and high schools in Delaware, southeastern Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

Our inaugural fall season had NRC competing in regattas along the Christina River in Wilmington (Head of the Christina), Boathouse Row (Navy Day, Frostbite, and Bill Braxton), the Charles River in Boston (Head of the Charles), and the Chattahoochee River in Chattanooga (Head of the Hooch). Now entering our eighth year, we are 40 athletes strong with a number of accomplishments for which we are proud –

  • One athlete who held the World Record for marathon on indoor rower from 2013 to 2017.
  • Two athletes to Nationals in 2015 placing 5th in the country.
  • Two athletes to Nationals in our first year (2010), placing 6th in the country.
  • Athletes to Nationals in every season to date, 5 of which finished in the top 10 in the country.
  • An athlete selected to the 2014 CanAmMex US Junior National Team representing the US in the CanAmMex Regatta in Nova Scotia.
  • An athlete selected to the 2012 US Junior National Team, representing the US in the World Championship Regatta, in Plovdiv, Bulgaria.
  • Head Coach John Cohn has been selected for the U.S. Junior National Team Development Program from 2013 through 2018.
  • Athletes rowing at the Harvard University, Cornell, Dartmouth, Syracuse, California Berkley,  Naval Academy, Ohio State, University of Texas, Boston University, University of Delaware, University of Massachusetts, Bucknell, Drexel, Rollins College, Loyola, Temple, St Josephs.

The Newport Rowing Club has had some impressive accomplishments throughout the years but we did not do it alone! We need your support to continue to provide opportunities for athletes to succeed in rowing at the level of their choice.
