We, at the “Maria Tsakos” Foundation, share what we have received from the sea and its people by fostering Hellenic and global shipping and the maritime tradition.


We pursue initiatives to advance seafarers’ welfare, maritime education, training and research; protect and preserve the environment and maritime heritage. We promote awareness of the world’s dependence on the sea and maritime skills. We support a culture of social responsibility, ethical behavior and integrity. We foster initiatives that will have a lasting impact and bring about change in people’s lives commensurate with the importance of the maritime sector to world’s economy, especially that of Greece. We nurture the notion of volunteerism and support philanthropic causes.
