sustaining the San Diego Crew Classic legacy
The San Diego Crew Classic Stewardship Program was founded by the San Diego Crew Classic Foundation in 1993 during the 20th Anniversary of the regatta. Stewardship with the San Diego Crew Classic designates our most loyal and distinguished supporters, as they serve as ambassadors not only for our organization, but also for the entire rowing community. Stewardship is the perfect choice for friends of the regatta who are committed to a lifelong participation in, and championing of, the sport of rowing.
There are four categories:
Gold, Silver, Bronze and Associate Stewards
providing growth and opportunity for our athletes
From its modest beginnings fifty years ago, the San Diego Crew Classic has matured into one of the largest regattas in the world. The regatta provides a venue for junior programs, collegiate teams, masters clubs, adaptive rowing programs, STEM to Stern initiatives, and elite level competitors to come together simultaneously and celebrate the sport of rowing. San Diegans and all of our participants and affiliates can be proud of the strong influence the regatta has had nationally on the sport of rowing, and its continuing impact on the forward movement of our community.
Every year, the regatta relies on the tremendous support it receives from programs and individuals across the country to make our event happen. Our donors are the heart and soul of our team, and make it possible to provide this beloved event to the rowing community year after year.
Donations have no minimum and any amount is appreciated. Donations to the Crew Classic are put directly into the growth of the regatta and enable us to not only provide outstanding and memorable racing opportunities, but a safe and welcoming space for every athlete who visits our shores.
Please consider making a donation today.

Donations of Appreciated Securities
The San Diego Crew Classic can accept Appreciated Securities as a donation. Securities (Stocks) that have increased in value and been held for more than one year can be better than donating cash to the Crew Classic.
When you donate appreciated securities you have held for more than one year, you can reduce or even eliminate federal capital gains taxes on the transfer. You may also be entitled to a federal income tax charitable deduction based on the fair market value of the securities at the time of transfer.
By donating securities that have appreciated and held for more than a year, you are actually giving more than if you sold the stock and made a cash donation. The maximum federal capital gains tax rate is 20 percent on long-term holdings and there’s no capital gains tax to pay if you donate the securities. In addition, you are still eligible to deduct the full fair-market value of the asset you donated from your income taxes, up to the amount allowed by the IRS.
This example assumes the donor is in a 32% Federal income tax bracket and does not take into account any state or local taxes, or other complex tax calculations that may limit the amount of the deduction.
Please seek the advice of your tax consultant or CPA.
