Since the beginnings of Bainbridge Island Rowing, our grassroots non-profit organization has always been funded, supported and operated by the West Sound community for the West Sound community. Our day-to-day operations are fully funded by our membership, but with your help, we can grow both our participation levels and our capacity.
BIR has grown from a handful of high school students who wanted to learn to row in 2001 into a multi-generational group of more than 170 rowers. We’re dedicated to continuing our growth through rowing program outreach and the creation of the area’s first year-round rowing center.
If you would like to help BIR make rowing accessible to all both today and in the future, please consider making a gift in support of our rowing sponsorship program or the capital campaign to complete the Stan Pocock Legacy Rowing Center.
