If there is no contact information listed on the website, a more generic approach is needed. Starting with a “To Whom it May Concern” works, as does, “Dear Sir or Madam.” These are not very personal, but they convey a sense of respect and formality, and in most cases, this is more than polite enough for a cover letter.
