Helping the community and the team achieve great things.

About Rent-a-Rower

As a club program, we get the majority of our funding from our rowers and alumni. Through the Rent-a-Rower project we assist people in the local community by raking leaves, moving furniture, and virtually any other task you could possibly need.

If you have tasks that need completing, yards that need raking, boxes that need moving, or anything else you can think of, consider using the power of UMass Men's Rowing to get it done.


Our highest-volume weekends are all four weekends in the month of November, but this year we are trying to expand the program and number of jobs we can do. As a result, we are trying to fit in more December and Spring jobs, with tasks such as shoveling, mowing, spring cleaning and more.

Obviously, we are students in addition to being athletes, so exam times and class times may come into conflict. We will work our hardest to schedule around these, so don’t let that deter you from scheduling an appointment!

Rate and Payment

Our rate is $17 per hour, per rower. This can be made payable via cash or check (out to Massachusetts Men’s Rowing) and 100% of it goes towards running our historic club. Every penny you spend on us is devoted to making the team run faster and better than ever before.


If this sounds like the team for you, drop us a line and get in touch with our Fundraising Coordinator, Kenneth Eva. All we need is your name, location and number of rowers and hours of work you desire. We’ll get back ASAP.
