Buffalo Scholastic Rowing Association was founded in 2009, with the purpose of expanding the sport of rowing to the greater Buffalo community. Through the sport of rowing, the BSRA enriches the Western New York and Old First Ward communities. We provide access to safe, fun and affordable recreation educational opportunities on the Buffalo River. 

Donations are vital to sustain and pursue these visions and goals.  We truly appreciate any donation you are able to contribute- THANK YOU!


We accept monetary donations via PayPal (DONATE button below) or Checks payable to BSRA.


Please mail to 405 Ohio Street, Buffalo, NY 14204 and attach a letter with your Name & Contact so we can send an acknowledgement Letter.

This BSRA under 23 lightweight pair just won USRowing’s U23 Trials and is headed to the U23 World Rowing Championships in Italy next month. They need at least $12,000 to support their expenses and entry to represent USA. Please consider supporting this venture; it is a big deal for Buffalo to be on the world stage again and we’re counting on our City of Good Neighbors to get us there:
