Here is an opportunity to reach out and make a difference in the lives of seafarers. By partnering with New England Seafarers Mission, you will directly impact the men and women who work on the vessels we visit. Shipping is truly an international industry providing work for more than a million people. Yet, while more than 90 per cent of the worlds goods and products are carried by ship, seafaring is one of the worlds most dangerous occupations.
Many of these ships sail under “flags of convenience” which allow owners to circumvent employee rights and fair-wage regulations. In today’s global market, seafarers often come from second and third world nations and are too often forgotten by a society that depends on this hazardous line of work. Because loneliness, danger and the risk of exploitation are too often the norm, sharing the love of God is the “HEART” of our Mission. Hospitality, Encouragement, Advocacy, Reconnection and Teaching. Please help us today with your tax-deductible donation and Thank you for helping the men and women who must make their living on the sea.
Additional giving alternatives: The Covenant Trust website provides information on deferred gifts via a legacy gift through a trust, will or life income agreement. This may be your best opportunity to make a significant gift to one or more ministries you care about. Legacy gifts use accumulated resources to fulfill your charitable dream to a degree which you may not feel able to afford during your lifetime. This is part of your legacy—what you pass down to those who come after you.
The Covenant Trust Company website offers information about financial planning and asset management. Other topics include retirement planning and IRA accounts, charitable life income agreements [e.g. charitable gift annuities], the Covenant Endowment Trust, and asset management services available through Covenant Trust Company.

We encourage you to continue your life’s work and purpose through your financial and legacy plans, motivated by the values you hold dear. Let’s focus on those values as we work together to manage what God has entrusted to you, use it well, get you to and through retirement and plan your legacy.
