Charter and Help
We like companies that attempt to give back, and here’s one:
Captain Kirk’s San Francisco Sailing, a small Sausalito-based sailboat charter company, is making generous donations to several San Francisco area non-profits. Captain Kirk’s San Francisco Sailing provides 10% of all revenues (not just a portion of profits) to selected non-profits.
The four organizations receiving donations at this time are: Farallones Marine Sanctuary Association, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area (Captain Kirk has been a Big Brother for over 12 years); Sailing Education Adventures (Providing sailing opportunities to disadvantaged youth); and the Marine Mammal Center. These contributions represent 10% of revenues from late 2008 and early 2009. Additional gifts will be made in the next three months.
Captain Kirk says: “The goal of the business is to support the community that has supported me. There is more to running a business than maximizing profit. We are able to make a profit while maintaining a primary goal of giving back to the community. I have been blessed with great health and an excellent education. Knowing that my sailing business helps generate funds for these deserving non-profits is very fulfilling.” . Captain Kirk brings a lifetime of sailing experience to each sailing charter.
