This rating was published 06/01/2017 and includes data from FY2015, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Through the discipline of rowing and rigorous academic support, Row New York transforms the lives of New Yorkers, regardless of background or ability. Row New York began in 2002 with the simple idea that competitive rowing paired with rigorous academic support for underserved youth could change the trajectory of their teen years and beyond. We have since taught thousands of young people the sport of rowing, and through it the values of tenacity, focus, teamwork, and confidence. Nearly 100% of our graduates go on to higher learning, most on scholarship. And virtually all our student-athletes report an improved lifestyle and newfound pride and purpose.
