2022 Partnership Opportunities to Support Seafarers’ House


Like many others Seafarers’ House weathered one of the toughest storms of its history over the past couple of years, and the storm has not yet subsided. Thanks to people like you, Seafarers’ House had the strength to keep moving forward when it mattered most to seafarers. Virtually and at the docks, we welcomed crew, provided pastoral support, delivered packages from home, distributed toiletries, PPE and food, gave blessings and hosted virtual multi-faith services. You can learn more about our work at seafarershouse.org.

While it was a difficult decision, Seafarers’ House decided to cancel the South Florida Business Leaders’ Luncheon for the third year in a row. This means that again  the dollars raised from the Luncheon aren’t coming in, but the challenge to maintain our services still exists. We need your help now more than ever.

The South Florida Business Leaders’ Luncheon is only one of many ways that businesses can publicly express their support for our mission each year. The event honors one of our community’s most deserving leaders and it serves as one of our largest fundraisers of the year. Each year we raise $65,000 to support a place of welcome through the event. Will you please consider committing support to Seafarers’ House this year with a gift that you would typically give for the South Florida Business Leaders’ Luncheon, and/or for one or more of our other events. All of these opportunities include public recognition for supporters. We understand that times are tough for many and you may not be able to give at your usual level. A gift at any level is truly appreciated.

We are truly dependent upon these hard working men and women for the high quality of life we enjoy. Ninety percent of everything we use, wear and consume (and drive!) comes to Fort Lauderdale via ships on the high seas. These are difficult times but we are a resilient organization, and your support will help ensure that we withstand the challenge.

Please consider partnering with Seafarers’ House in 2021 and publicly express your support for these hardworking men and women!

Thanks to your generosity we can weather this storm.
