Anonymous donor gifts $25,000

Nyack, NY - An anonymous donor has agreed to support Rockland Rowing's community rowing efforts with a generous donation of $25,000.

Rowing Director Melissa Boyd said, "The gift is from a long-standing donor who understands the importance of philanthropy and the ongoing support needed for the growth and development of the programs we offer. We are extremely grateful to this donor for their generosity. Charitable contributions like this are a testament to the belief donors have in the mission of the RRA."

The donation is planned to fund the purchase of two Hudson doubles. The shells were new last year and used at the World Championships and University Games. The equipment will benefit the youth and adult programs directly.
