Through a generous donation from the Perkin Fund and guided by their vision of a more sustainable, accessible, and inclusive rowing community, the George Pocock Rowing Foundation (GPRF) is pleased to have been able to offer the Pocock Perkin Recovery Grant Program to boathouses located in the states of WA and OR.
Originally designed to build youth scholarship capacity as a matching fund grant, the GPRF pivoted the grant focus for this year due to COVID-19. This year’s recipients have been selected with the vision of helping boathouses sustain operations, so as to maintain capacity and continue to have a positive impact on youth rowers within the WA and OR region.
The GPRF is honored to announce that the following boathouses have been selected to receive funding from the 2020 Pocock Perkin Recovery Grant Program:
Vancouver Lake Rowing Club
Olympic Peninsula Rowing Association
Clam Island Rowing
Rose City Rowing Club
Everett Rowing Association
South Eugene Rowing Club
Olympia Area Rowing
Renton Rowing Center
