Support IRC Donate Today!


Rowing is expensive primarily due to the equipment and maintenance that is required. The Indianapolis Rowing Center is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization established with the mission to provide all individuals with the opportunity to try and participate in rowing. Donations to the Indianapolis Rowing Center help to provide financial aid and equipment to help lower costs, making rowing more financially accessible.

IRC provides novice and competitive rowing programs and clinics for youth and adults in addition to outreach programs that offer veterans, breast cancer survivors, and both youth and adult adaptive rowers the opportunity to experience this potentially life changing sport.
