Matching Funds Announcement!

SEMA has received notice from Commissioner Ed Lambert that our purchase of the foremast for Ernestina has been matched by DCR’s Partnership Matching Funds Program.

This 2:1 match will provide an additional $47,000 “for replacement of the foremast and repairs to the mainmast, re-stepping the masts and completion of rigging repair and maintenance.”

This is an example of how SEMA’s partnership can work to the best advantage for Ernestina.  We look forward to the finalization of the Memorandum of Agreement we have been drafting and to a more effective partnership to insure the best future for Ernestina/Effie M. Morrissey.

Your contributions will help SEMA increase its effectiveness.   DONATE
