The Campaign for SCI: Securing the Future of Mariners

SCI has embarked on a transformational campaign to increase its investment portfolio. Investment income goes directly to SCI’s operating budget in support of core programs for today’s mariners. Also, because SCI will never spend the principal, the investment portfolio acts as a stabilizing force allowing SCI to respond to the future needs of mariners.

A team of passionate volunteers is spearheading SCI’s Campaign, with new donors enlisting daily. We invite you to join them in this momentous endeavor by making a pledge that guarantees future generations of mariners safety, access to essential services while working in US waters, and support wherever their journeys take them. The men and women laboring for months at sea and on American waterways deserve our support for years to come.

Making a Pledge

Individuals and corporations may support the Campaign with gifts of cash, marketable securities, and through a variety of planned giving vehicles. SCI also gratefully accepts one-time gifts and pledges over two to five years.

For additional information about the Campaign or to make a personal or corporate gift, please contact Jennifer Koenig, Director of Development, at +1 212-349-8142 or jkoenig@seamenschurch.org.
