Purdue Crew


Your support is critically important and makes a significant impact in sustaining Purdue Crew . Roughly 7% of the program’s funding comes from alumni gifts. (Current members cover nearly 63% of the budget. Recreational Sports supports 30% in the way of Head Coach and Assistant Coach/Rigger Salaries). For questions about planned or major gifts to Purdue Crew, please contact Development Director David Lasater at dlasater@purdue.edu or David Kucik at dwk@purdue.edu or 765-491-4700.

Purdue Crew Annual Fund:
This fund supports the annual operating costs associated with the program primarily graduate assistantship salaries who coach the novice members.

Purdue Crew Equipment Fund:
The fund supports the purchase of new shell and oars for the crew. Replacing shells and oars is needed on an ongoing basis so Purdue crews can compete in similar equipment as the best crews in the country rather than costly repairs to older equipment.

Kenneth M. Butler Memorial Fund Endowment
This fund will accrue funds to insure that Purdue crew will be able to offer a competitive rowing experience just like the one you enjoyed to future Purdue students choosing to challenge themselves with a competitive rowing experience while enhancing their overall Purdue educational experience.
