Supporting ROAR
There are many ways to get involved and support Norwalk River Rowing’s outreach efforts:

  • Volunteer as a grants researcher: Do you have an extra 30 minutes per week? Work from home researching grants and compiling information to be used in fund raising proposals. Computer skills and an interest in writing are needed, but no prior grant writing experience is required. Call 203-866-0080 ext 15.
  • Volunteer as a coach or chaperone: Are you looking for a way to reach out to our community? Are you interested in sharing your love of rowing? ROAR always has coaching opportunities available. No rowing experience is necessary for some volunteers.  Call 203-866-0080 ext 15.
  • Become an Outreach Rowing Advocate: Help spread the word about all ROAR is doing in Norwalk without ever leaving home!  Use your writing skills to put together press releases for local media outlets on an occasional basis.  Call 203-866-0080 ext 15.
  • Donate to ROAR’s mission: ROAR’s budget must be raised outside of the NRRA program and membership fees, so donations from individuals and foundations are always appreciated. They may be made by cash, check, credit card, or stock donation by calling 866-0080 x15, visiting the donations page at, or by mailing them to ROAR, Norwalk River Rowing, 1 Moodys Lane, Norwalk, CT, 06851.

Norwalk River Rowing Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Most donations are full tax deductible (check with your accountant to be sure).  Many corporations will also match any donation that you make. Please check to help amplify the effect your donation will have.
