As a non-profit, community-based organization, BIR generates operating funds primarily through our Program Fees. However, special projects like the completion of the Stan Pocock Legacy Rowing Center also depend on the support of foundation grants, donations from corporate sponsors, and gifts from our community.
The estimated cost to build the rowing center is $2.94 million for construction, plus $1 million to establish an ongoing operating fund (for maintenance, utilities, and repairs). Thanks to the generosity of many donors and supporters, we are already more than half way to achieving our fundraising goal and completing construction!
Please join us in realizing the dream of building a new home for rowing on Bainbridge Island and honoring the legacy of Stan Pocock.
