Friends of SEA Junction

This section honors the many that have contributed to the establishment and development of SEA Junction. They have done so in different ways, providing cash donations, giving us grants, offering pro-bono services, sharing the costs and responsibilities for events and providing in-kind contributions. For easy referral, we divide them below types of contribution, and then we list them by year and alphabetically by first name.

Regarding donations, for Friends of SEA Junction no minimum amount is specified –this differently from Founding Partners who have contributed a minimum fixed amount.  Many more have donated at our events or made anonymous contributions and although we cannot name them here one by one we remain grateful to them as their contribution too is essential to the functioning of SEA Junction.  And for those who wish to donate you can do so electronically or by bank transfer just take a look our at our donation page.
