How To Help

Financial donations

The Baltimore International Seafarers' Center is an independent non-profit corporation and depends on the support of the Port business community, the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland, churches of several denominations, the Seafarers' Trust of the International Transport Workers' Federation, seafarers themselves, and other generous individuals.

The Center is 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. The Center files IRS form 990, which is available for inspection at the Center or at www.guidestar.org .

Your donations will help provide gasoline and insurance for the vans which transport seafarers, cell phone loans for crew members who cannot leave their ships, salaries for the staff whose work supports our volunteer ship visitors, and many other needs.
