"The cool grey city of love." — George Sterling
Although Passport Resorts' vision and values are expressed uniquely at each property, one program is common to every resort. All participate in The Good Night Foundation and Cavallo Point is a proud partner. Today, the efforts and impact of The Good Night Foundation are expanding in partnership with Preferred Hotels & Resorts.
Founded in 2007, The Good Night Foundation is a non-profit organization that builds on the concept that a guest's hotel night can contribute to doing good in the community and beyond. In partnership with leading hoteliers and caring guests, The Good Night Foundation raises funds to support local and global programs that help make all parts of the world safe, healthy and desirable places to live and visit.
At Good Night Foundation partner hotels, a three dollar charitable donation is added to each guest's nightly charge. The Good Night Foundation funds programs focused on improving health, education, poverty and the environment. In addition, at least 50% of proceeds remain in the community in which they were collected, supporting local causes selected by the hotel staff. In this way, guests know their contributions benefit each community they visit. Guests who do not wish to participate may opt out by contacting their hotel front desk.
Through Good Night Foundation partner hotels and their generous guests, small personal contributions can have an enormous impact on the well-being of our global community. To date, The Good Night Foundation has raised over $200,000 for local and global grantees.

Cavallo Point has chosen two organizations to receive its local Good Night Foundation contributions:
Environmental Traveling Companions (ETC) opens the beauty and challenge of the great outdoors to people with disabilities and disadvantaged youth. Participants raft whitewater rivers, ski alpine meadows, kayak the waters of the Golden Gate and Tomales Bay, and more. Founded in 1972 by three river rafting guides, ETC is a national pioneer in the field of accessible outdoor adventures and is respected as the largest and oldest organization of its kind in California. ETC believes that everyone, regardless of physical or financial limitations, should have the opportunity to experience the challenge and beauty of the wilderness.
As part of Cavallo Point's commitment to sustainability, the Institute at the Golden Gate debuted in 2008. Created by the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy in partnership with the National Park Service, the Institute promotes dialogue, collaboration, shared problem solving, and action for a sustainable world. Gathering global leaders in the non-profit, government and business sectors, the Institute connects scientists, policy makers, youth leaders, and non-profit and business managers to develop solutions to critical issues. Programs focus on sustainability, national parks and protected areas, environmental arts and communication, resource conservation and other topics to improve the health and quality of our environment.
