About Us

The IMMAJ-PJMCC Foundation, Inc. (FINC) is a non-stock, non-profit organization duly registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) since 07 March 2003. The FINC was formed through the collaborative efforts of the International Mariners Management Association of Japan (IMMAJ) and the Philippine-Japan Manning Consultative Council, Inc. (PJMCC), who share the common goal of advancing the quality of Filipino seafarers, especially those working onboard Japanese ships. Formerly known as PJMCC Foundation, the FINC was established to receive grants from the JSU-AMOSUP Training Levy Fund (JATF) and the Seafarers Promotion Fund (SPF). Both the JATF and the SPF are derived from mandatory contributions made by Japanese ship owners for the upgrading of seafarer’s knowledge and skills.
