FUNDRAISING DIRECTIONS (These are also on the form, repeated here for emphasis)

  • Record donation information on the form.  Use additional forms if you need more space.

  • Turn in all donations in a regular envelope with your name on the outside.

  • Turn in envelopes at practice on Monday, 2/6 and Tuesday, 2/7 (Envelopes will NOT be accepted the day of ergathon)

  • Inside the envelope should be all donations and the donation form(s).

  • It is preferable to condense all cash into a single check.  For example, if five different people gave you $20 each, write their information on five different lines above.  Then, before turning in your envelope with this form inside, have your parent write a check for $100 to “McLean Crew Club” and exchange it for the cash.




  • Rowers:  Turn in the funds you raise AT PRACTICE on 2/6 and 2/7 before ergathon

  • Parents:  Sign-up for a volunteer slot
