Fundraising Events

RCRC hosts and joins several annual fundraisers, in addition to welcoming donations anytime in the year

Big Day of Giving

RCRC has been privileged and excited to participate in Big Day of Giving - the Sacramento region's annual fundraiser for community non-profits - since 2015. Through the support of RCRC members & their families, friends of the Club, and the broader community, BDOG fundraising has enabled RCRC to welcome new members, and funded many of our most key yet expensive purchases. We invite you to join the Sacramento community in support of all area nonprofits on May 7, 2020 and ask you to remember RCRC.

Throughout the spring, as Big Day of Giving approaches, follow the RCRC facebook page to learn how to donate as well as RCRC's plans for the future.

Junior Team Erg-a-thon

The Junior Team's annual Erg-a-thon, held over two days in early December, is the program's largest fundraiser. Each Junior athlete (including coxswains) completes four hour-long workouts, demonstrating dedication to their team. Prior to the event, the athletes solicit support from family, friends, and the broader community. To sponsor an athlete in need of your support, email Head Junior Team Coach Arthur Ericsson at

West Sac Foundation All Charities Raffle

Each September and early October, RCRC members join in selling raffle tickets through the West Sacramento Foundation's All Charities Raffle. The Foundation provides all support for the raffle, with prizes donated by community businesses, allowing RCRC and other participating nonprofits to retain $8.50 for every $10 ticket Club members sell. Help support RCRC by selling tickets and buying several yourself!

Tickets sales will be announced via the RCRC list serv, as well as the Facebook and Instagram pages. If you miss the announcement, email to pick up a book.

Rebuild of the RCRC ramp and deck Spring-Summer 2017. The immediate rebuilding - without waiting for additional funds - was possible with a rainy day fund of prior donations.
