San Francisco Maritime National Park Association

The San Francisco Maritime National Park Association is the non-profit partner to the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park. We also independently run the WWII submarine museum and memorial USS Pampanito. For over 70 years we have worked to bring maritime history to life along San Francisco's historic waterfront.

Each year, the Associations unique education programs at San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park serve thousands of local schoolchildren. More than 100,000 people visit USS Pampanito annually, making her one of the most popular historical naval vessels in the country. Considered one of the worlds finest examples of maritime preservation, this submarine has been designated a National Historic Landmark. USS Pampanito also hosts more than 1,000 children and adults for daytime and overnight education programs each year.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.

Data
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
