The Mission to Seafarers is an independent non-profit corporation recognized by the IRS as an exempt organization under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code, and all contributions are deductible in accordance with law. Our tax ID # is 40-0000490. We rely solely on fundraising, grants and donations, and this represents an annual challenge. Our staff and team of volunteers are dedicated to meeting this challenge, but we need the help of the communities who benefit from the many sacrifices that seafarers often have to make.
Your donations will help provide gasoline and insurance for the vans which transport seafarers, SIM cards for crew members who cannot leave their ships, salaries for the part-time staff and ship visitors, and many other needs.
To make a one-time payment with PayPal use the "Support the Mission" button on the right. You may specify any dollar amount.
If you prefer to send a check, the mailing address is: The Mission to Seafarers, 3568 W. Marginal Way SW, Seattle, WA 98106.
