The mission of the Des Moines Rowing Club is to provide equipment, facilities, instructional programs and recreational and competitive rowing opportunities in a safe and satisfying manner for those who want to learn, participate and enjoy the great sport of rowing.  In so doing it also promotes leadership development, teamwork, physical fitness, diversity and stewardship of the environments in which it conducts its activities.
Sponsorships of the Head of the Des Moines regatta are available at many levels. All sponsors and donors receive recognition in our printed materials and publicity, and are announced several times during the day in race announcements. In-kind donations of good and services and monetary contributions will be used to cover regatta expenses; remaining funds will be used to support club programs and equipment needs.
The Des Moines Rowing Club is a 501(c)(3) organization.
