Giving to Virginia Rowing

Varsity Squad

“Deciding to row at Virginia was the best decision I ever made. It led to meeting lifelong friends and to creating lifelong memories. In fact, my memories of college boil down to my memories of Virginia Crew. Rowing for Virginia has also been a big part of my professional career. When I interviewed for my current position, rowing was the highlight of my resume, the topic that my boss talked about the most. I appreciate all that the program has done for me and for my fellow teammates.”

—Casey Lingan, ’00, Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney, Fairfax County, VA

There are two ways to give to the crew: 1) to the day-to-day operating expenses fund, or 2) to the endowment fund, which is critical for the long-term success of the crew and for helping to make purchases that help raise the competitive level of the crew.

Virginia Rowing has established a fund to commemorate the life of one of our own, Jake Cusano ’16. Please consider making a contribution in Jake’s memory.

Jake Cusano Memorial Fund



The Jake Cusano fund will be used to assist those athletes who are unable to pay all of their annual dues and expenses (about $2000). VRA’s goals is for every athlete who makes the team to be able to row, regardless of his/her ability to pay. Jake’s fund will help make that vision a reality.
