Mariners are the backbone of the global commerce, transporting billions of tons of cargo each year across the world's oceans and along our nation's inland waterways. Their labors greatly impact the world's economy.
Assisting the work of the Galveston Seafarers Center gives support to these individuals who deliver the goods that make our modern way of life possible. The Galveston Seafarers Center provides many ways to get involved. Please take a moment to read about; making a financial contribution, volunteering, collecting gifts for Seafarers, becoming a sponsor and corporate giving.
The Galveston Seafarers Center strives to be a good steward of all of its resources: volunteers, staff and financial contributions. Investing its assets in the future of the maritime community, we use the dollars you give wisely and to the fullest extent.
Some people support our Center because of the professional services we provide to the maritime industry. Others support the Center as a way of participating in the mission of their religious affiliation. The Galveston Seafarers Center enables affiliations across a wide and diverse spectrum. All of them work together to make a better tomorrow for the hardworking mariners of the world.
