Help Support Oakland Strokes
The Oakland Strokes runs on the generosity of our donors. All donations, no matter the amount, help us improve our facilities, buy equipment, fund financial aid for our athletes and operate day to day.
The Oakland Strokes uses world class equipment to allow our rowers the opportunity to compete at the highest level possible. This equipment is continuously maintained to keep it in top working shape. However, all equipment has a finite lifetime and will be in need of replacement after enough years. Donations by our generous members and extended family help keep the Strokes equipment fleet up to speed!
Oakland Stokes is committed to ensuring no youth is turned away because they can’t afford the full standard fees. Last year, we awarded more than $60,000 in financial aid, and we are budgeted increases over the coming years to help make rowing more accessible to all. Your donations make this Financial Aid possible.
The Oakland Strokes gladly accepts gifts of all sizes. We have created the following giving levels to help guide your decision making. All donations are tax deductible. Many employers have matching gift programs that can double or triple your charitable contribution!
Donations are tax-deductible, provided that you have not received any goods or services in exchange for your gift. Oakland Strokes is tax-exempt under IRS section 501(c)3 and our tax ID is 94-3132016. You may give to the Strokes via the following methods:
