Washington-Lee Crew and the Boosters welcome contributions that will help us to purchase new equipment. Equipment is by far the largest expense category of the team. Without outside contributions, W-L Crew would not be able to buy new shells and keep our team at its fastest. Any contribution is welcome.
In recognition of large contributions to fund the purchase of a shell (typically two-thirds of the cost of the shell), W-L Crew and the Boosters will grant boat-naming privileges to the donor, subject to final approval by the W-L Crew Boosters Executive Board, in consultation with the coaches. The W-L tradition is to name boats after individuals or groups strongly identified with W-L Crew or Washington-Lee High School (e.g., past W-L Crew coaches, rowers, parents, other supporters of W-L Crew, “Class of 1960”). Names of companies and other organizations not directly related to W-L Crew will also be considered. A boat will retain its name for as long as it is part of the W-L Crew inventory.
