Shrewsbury High School Crew

A Tradition Since 1937

Alumni & Fundraising


As members of the rowing community, a Shrewsbury High School Crew alumni, or alumni of another program, we are all well aware of the hard work and dedication that goes into each rowing season. Further, the lessons of preparation, execution, teamwork and leadership that rowing provides are skill sets that our student-athletes can apply for a lifetime.

It is the goal of the Shrewsbury High School Crew program to run at the highest of levels for any school program. In order for this program to operate at these standards, the boys’ and girls’ teams conduct many fundraising initiatives throughout the year in order to provide many of the necessities that drive daily operation of the crew program at Shrewsbury High School. As we all know, the sport of rowing requires significant capital equipment, from boats for the coaches and shells for the athletes, to trailers and buses to get to races away from Lake Quinsigamond. We would like to thank all of the student athletes for the hard work each year required for these fundraising efforts. Just as important as the student athlete, is the community of Shrewsbury which consistently offers help, goods and/or services in the Shrewsbury Crew fundraising campaigns.

Until the launch of the next fundraising campaign, which we look forward to your participation, your donations throughout the year provide the capital to run the Shrewsbury Crew program beyond our annual expectations. Over the years, many alumni have made charitable contributions to the program, however, we would like to most notably thank the Donahue family for their support over the years. The Donahue family has been the greatest provider of charitable support to the Shrewsbury High School Crew program since its inception in 1937. As a result of their contributions, Shrewsbury High School is fortunate to be rowing out of the Donahue Rowing Center, and row in many shells, most of which were provided by the Donahue family. SHS rowers are a fortunate group to have such incredible support from the Donahue family and other contributors!

To make a tax deductible contribution like many in the community that believe in this program and many of the alumni that cherish the memories that Shrewsbury Crew provided, please contact LeeAnna Goyne below at  Your donation is greatly appreciated by SHS Crew and The Friends of Shrewsbury Crew (FOSC).
