The Tiles

Tile Project

The Seattle Fishermen's Memorial welcomes applications for engraved memorial tiles to be installed at the Fishermen's Memorial site at Fishermen's Terminal in Seattle. Tiles will be installed two times per year: prior to the annual Fishermen's Fall Festival and the annual Memorial Service conducted on the first Sunday in May.

The Seattle Fishermen's Memorial Board has the responsibility of approving the names for the tiles, and reserves the right to reject any text considered inappropriate. Tiles will be installed on a first come first serve basis starting at the center and working outward.


 

Types of Tiles

MEMORY TILES Memory Tiles are located 11 ft. south of the Monument and are small personal remembrances of members of the fishing community who are no longer with us. Names that appear on Memory Tiles can be of fishermen or fisherwomen who are no longer living, or of people no longer living who were directly associated with the seafood industry in the greater Seattle area, and who have made long term commitments or significant contributions to the seafood industry.  Each Memory Tile is $500 (minimum) although there is a minimum price for each tile, donations above this amount are graciously accepted.

SUPPORT TILES Support Tiles are located 47 ft. south of the Monument and are small personal messages from living people, families and businesses that support the Memorial. Friends or families of fishermen who do not qualify for the monument or for Memory Tiles may purchase Support Tiles. The tiles may be engraved with the names of individuals or businesses, as well as text, subject to approval by the Seattle Fishermen's Memorial Board. Each Support Tile is $1000 (minimum) although there is a minimum price for each tile, donations above this amount are graciously accepted.

SPONSOR TILES Sponsor Tiles are located 47 ft. south of the Monument and are the largest tiles offered. These tiles are purchased by organizations that make generous contributions to cover the expenses of the tile program and help to maintain the other programs offered by the Seattle Fishermen’s Memorial Board. Each Sponsor Tile is $10,000 (minimum) although there is a minimum price for each tile, donations above this amount are graciously accepted.
