SEMA’s  pledge to raise $1 million toward the $6 million rehabilitation of Schooner Ernestina-Morrissey can be fulfilled with your help!

The Manton Foundation has generously made a $375,000 challenge grant to support the ship’s rehabilitation — for every dollar donated, the Foundation will match it up to $375,000! When we meet this challenge we will have raised the $1 million SEMA pledged and the funding of the three year, $6.3 million-dollar restoration/rehabilitation of the historic Schooner Ernestina-Morrissey‘ s hull will be complete!

Every gift will help us meet our goal.
