West End House is an Official Charity of the Head of the Charles® Regatta

Contribute to West End House as part of the HOCR 2021 Charity Program


Since its inception in 1998, the Charity Program has worked to generate over $1,000,000 for a number of worthy causes. Participation in the Charity Program is open to single scullers, doubles, fours and eights. In the past, the Regatta has joined competitors in their fundraising efforts by matching contributions dollar for dollar. They have also made separate sizable contributions to each charity. This program provides the rowing community and Regatta the opportunity to offer their support to very worthy endeavors. Charity Program participants will be duly recognized for their philanthropic efforts in the Official Regatta Program.

West End House is thrilled to be one of three official charities selected by the Head of the Charles Regatta. We encourage you to make a contribution below as your support will have a major impact on young people in Boston.

West End House has been busy as an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, adapting quickly to support our community from delivering over 400,000 lbs. of groceries to over 300 families and neighbors to becoming one of the very few youth development agencies to transition away from virtual programming and safely re-open in person beginning in July 2020. We provide fitness, academic, arts, STEM, and social programming after-school five days per week and all day during the summer. As a supporter of the West End House, your contribution is vital to our ability to rapidly respond in these times.
