Rowing is one of the most expensive of high school sports! Our equipment is extremely costly – especially for public schools! We currently are rowing with many older boats purchased from other clubs. We want to grow this team at Eastern and in order to do so, we need quality boats that can hold up to the fastest rowers!
We have a new support/sponsorship opportunity this year! We are pleased to announce that our chuck wagon trailer has had a beautiful makeover and will proudly shine during her travels this spring season. As a part of her new look, we have sections of the trailer that are available for sponsorship! This can be for families, individual rowers, small businesses, corporations – just about anyone who is interested. We are able to accommodate multi-colored company logos.
If you have questions or wish to purchase a spot on our trailer, please reach our President, Elana Hostetter 480-433-0828.
One of the new boats from Cornell has been painted in our FHE school colors and is getting ready for its debut on the water. All that is missing is a name!
As you know, we are working diligently to update and upgrade our fleet. Our team was given two boats that were used at Cornell University. They have potential, just like our Hawk rowers! The boats are 8+ (8 rowers and a coxswain) the fastest boats on the water! They each will need some equipment upgrades as well as a new paint finish in beautiful FHE Crimson.
FHE Crew Boosters Board is offering this unique opportunity to leave a lasting legacy with Eastern Rowing. Each boat will require a $4500 investment to upgrade, paint and be ready for the water. Those who choose to fully fund each boat will have the honor of naming rights.* Current and future FHE Rowers will refer to the boat by name and the name you choose will be prominently featured on the hull of each boat. This is a wonderful opportunity to leave a lasting legacy gift for the FHE Crew team.
Thank you. Your support lets us push the bar ever higher. Row Hawks!
We encourage you to give generously: when you donate to an IRS-qualified 501(c)(3) public charity, including Forest Hills Eastern Crew, you are able to take an income tax charitable deduction.

We encourage you to reach out to families, friends and business owners to help support the Hawks rowing community by getting their logo or message on our trailer. As you know fundraising is a major contributor to the success of our sport – it allows us to purchase boats, update equipment and grow the program – we need your help to continue the success of our wonderful team!
We offer opportunities soon for sponsors to put their business logos on our crew trailer which travels in the Fall and Spring throughout Michigan. In addition, there will be chances to put logos with a link on this website and on our Facebook pages, signage at our Regatta events and for ambitious donors, the possibility of putting your logo on one of our boats!
These opportunities will be posted on this page.
If you have other ideas of what we can do, please let us know!
