Row Donate Rent-a-rower


You can hire MSU Crew’s rowers to work on about just about anything. Rent-A-Rowers (RAR) are an excellent way to donate to our program while getting your money’s worth. Common RAR jobs include, but are certainly not limited to:

Raking leaves, shoveling snow, mowing lawns, moving furniture, landscaping, calendar modeling, etc.

To help us ensure that your RAR request can be accommodated, please request it at least two weeks in advance.      

Below are some RAR guidelines.

  • No less than 2 rowers are hired for a job.
  • We charge $10/hour per rower. So, 3 rowers working for 4 hours = $120
  • Rowers are paid for a minimum of 4 hours.
  • Try not to assign our rowers to dangerous jobs; we can’t race if we’re injured!
  • Weekday requests are the hardest to schedule around classes.

To Schedule a RAR please fill out the form below or contact Lucas Erway at with the information requested in the form


  • We ask for a minimum of 4 hours, or to be paid the equivalent of 4 hours work.
    This will help us fill spots, as not all rowers have transportation. Pick up will be at the Central Services Building, located on Red Cedar Street. It is on the west side of Spartan Stadium and across the street from Wells Hall.
