In July, 2013, on behalf of the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation (the “Washington Foundation”), Seaspan announced a multi-year donation of $1.1 million to three British Columbia marine and port community charitable organizations. We enjoyed a three-year partnership with the Vancouver Maritime Museum (VMM), and Royal Canadian Marine Search & Rescue (RCM-SAR). Our five-year commitment to Sail and Life Training Society (SALTS) will extend through 2017.
The Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation’s charitable donations are the organization’s first direct donation of their kind in Canada. Since its inception, the Washington Foundation has donated more than $144 million in the United States to hundreds of organizations that focus on education, health and human services, arts and culture, and community service.
