Corporate Sponsorship

Corporate sponsorship is an excellent way to reach your CSR goals while providing vital support to seafarers. Whether sponsoring one of our industry events or a project directly supporting seafarers, we will work with you to find the right opportunity to meet your needs.

Involve your employees

Involving employees by allowing volunteering time, encouraging them to work together to raise money or introducing a Matched Giving or Give as you Earn scheme are proven to boost morale and increase skills, confidence, productivity and staff retention.

Charity of the Year

Nominating Sailors’ Society as your chosen charity is an excellent way of uniting your employees globally to raise money together for a deserving cause. We will work with you to help with fundraising ideas, providing places on our challenge events, providing promotional resources and more.

Involve your customers

Depending on the type of product or service you provide, you can work with us to raise vital funds by adding a donation at the point of sale. This could be through a Cause Related Marketing initiative whereby a percentage of sales is donated to Sailors’ Society.
