Donate – Project Ely

Act now and make Project Ely happen

Donate now to Project Ely to build a boathouse so extraordinary it can accommodate the drive and ambition of future squads. We need you to act now to build this boathouse and to secure the future of CUWBC. A home of our own was a dream five years ago – together we can make it a reality.

Rowing is the ultimate team sport and we’re keen for all our alumni to contribute to our success – just as they did in the boat. If we’re to achieve our target we’ll need everyone to be as generous as they can.

Here’s how we’ll recognise your donation to Ely:

Individual Gifts

Every donor who pledges over

  • £500 will have their name recorded in the Boathouse
  • £10,000 will have their name recorded as a ‘Friend’ on the Ely Honours Board
  • £30,000 will have their name recorded as a Benefactor

Crew Pledges

Every crew that pledges over

  • £2,500 will have their Crew recorded in the Boathouse (eg ‘Blondie 1997’)
  • £10,000 will have their Crew recorded as a ‘Friend’ on the Ely Honours Board
  • £30,000 will have their Crew recorded as a ‘Benefactor’

Gifts can be paid over five years and the Club can claim Gift Aid on your donation.

Our enormous progress is down to every one of the women who have rowed (or coxed) for the Club – whether Blondie, Blue or Lightweight – and everyone else who has coached or helped us along the way. Your determination to break down barriers and boundaries in the face of adversity paved the way for equality for today’s women at Cambridge. You made a choice then to be part of an elite club that was at the forefront of women’s sporting performance, and although the kit and equipment might have changed, the spirit and drive has not. The crews that will line up at the Tideway and Henley in April follow in your footsteps.

We need your help now. Every single gift counts. Be a part of the future of CUWBC.

Ely Fundraising Progress

The scholar athletes of CUWBC need this facility to ensure that they can manage the demands of the intense training programme required to compete at the modern Boat Races. We want all our crews to beat Oxford and to maintain our lead.
