Annual Fund Sets New Record
We Raised $55,140
With a surge of donations in September and the receipt of a number of matching gifts our 2016 Annual Fund campaign set a new record, raising $55,140. Thank you to the over 120 donors who have made this achievement possible. Your support of the programs at Mount Baker is greatly appreciated.
The Annual Fund will provide support for Outreach and Financial Assistance, so that cost concerns never prevent a child or adult from participating at Mount Baker.
The Annual Fund allows us to keep both rowing and sailing fleets, coaches’ launches, outboard motors, rowing machines, safety gear and more – costs which total $90,000 to $100,000 annually – current and in good repair.
Again, thank you all for your generous support and enthusiasm. Go Baker!

Saturday April 15th, 2017
We’re inviting all Junior Crew Alumni and all Master Crew Veterans to join us for an opportunity to reunite with old friends, team mates and coaches. Pass the word and invite your former team mates to join you for a great evening!
After the Reunion Reception and Dinner we will pay special honor to our National Champion Girls 8+ from 1997. This crew earned Mount Baker its third consecutive National Championship in the Girls 8+ and the first coached by our very own Jason Coffman. We are particularly excited to announce that Portia Johnson McGee who stroked the 1997 crew will be with us for Reunion. Portia started her stellar rowing career at Mount Baker by helping to row our Girls 8+ to three National Championships-’95-’97. After excelling as a collegiate rower at Brown and with the US National Team, she was named US Rowing’s Female Athlete of the Year in 2007. Portia’s competitive rowing career culminated at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing where she represented the United States in the Pair.
We look forward to seeing you on April 15th
