Friends of Haverford School Rowing
Friends of Haverford School Rowing (FHSR) is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan, 503(c)(3) corporation dedicated to, and operated for, charitable purposes(EIN Number is 23-2579468). FHSR plays a vital role in sustaining, strengthening, and preserving a high-quality crew program which reflects the spirit and commitment of its oarsmen and alumni. FHSR shares the values of The Haverford School a nonsectarian college preparatory school, and is also committed to developing the full intellectual, artistic, athletic and moral potential in each boy.
The mission of FHSR is to raise money to supplement the crew program at The Haverford School.
The Haverford School contributes a nominal percentage of the necessary expenses of the team, however, does not fully fund the program. Traditionally, FHSR funds over 65% of the annual crew program expenses: equipment acquisition and maintenance, entry fees, and Undine Boathouse club dues. In many ways FHSR aims to be a custodian of the collective efforts and resources of its supporters, a means of facilitating their enormous generosity and a reliable partner in the larger goal of developing each boy’s individual excellence on and off the water.
The ambition of two loyal and passionate supporters of the crew program at The Haverford School, FHSR traces its formation back to 1990. These two individuals, Scot Fisher ’74 and William McNabb launched and led FHSR to its present-day success. Their efforts as both founding and true visionaries gave FHSR its start, but their continued support and active leadership through to the present ensures that FHSR will endure and succeed well into the future.
Since its formation FHSR has partnered with parents, alumni, coaches and other friends of the crew program at The Haverford School to fulfill its mission. Many of the achievements of the FHSR are inextricably tied to the generosity of these individuals. As an organization, FHSR has grown and continues to grow, as is evidenced by this website, into a better, stronger, more enduring champion of the crew program at The Haverford School.
