CAVU in the Community

Doing good feels good. Since our founding in 2009, CAVU has contributed 10% of our revenue to dozens of charitable organizations that operate on a local and global level.

We give based on our revenue (not our profit) so that we constantly make substantial donations, even when we are investing in our business. Plus, we like using the same principles that we teach our kids: spend less than you earn, give, save, and invest the rest. 


Some Organizations We Support

Convoy of Hope
Since 1994, Convoy of Hope has served more than 115 million people worldwide. The organization works with churches, businesses, government agencies and other nonprofits to provide help and hope to those who are impoverished, hungry and hurting. CAVU gives 5% of its annual revenues to support Convoy of Hope’s mission.
Bay Area Rescue Mission
The Bay Area Rescue Mission serves the homeless and those in need in one of the toughest neighborhoods in the Bay Area. In 2016, the Rescue Mission provided more than 77,000 nights of shelter and more than 788,000 meals. In addition to providing emergency shelter and meals, they offer comprehensive help, including recovery programs, job and life-skills trainings, and “food” for the mind and soul. CAVU teaches a financial skills class to participants soon to graduate from the organization’s 18-month recovery program.
Children Rising
Children Rising is on a mission to, among other things, teach kids how to read. Did you know that if you can’t read by the 3rd grade, you’ve probably missed the “teacher support” window? The majority of these students end up dropping out of school. One of their primary missions is to mobilize volunteer tutors and mentors to help youth develop their reading skills while gaining positive self-esteem.
