San Francisco Yacht Club

St. Francis Yacht Club

Progress towards 2017 Goal of $250,000

To commemorate the Perkins Corporate Challenge, Thomas Perkins, Leukemia Cup Regatta Honorary Chairman and co-founder of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, commissioned the Perkins Challenge Trophy, a perpetual trophy designed by Danish silversmith Georg Jensen.

The Perkins Cup celebrates the tremendous support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the racing community received from Tom over the years. Tom passed in 2016, and we’ve continued to race in his memory with notable brands such as Pacific Union, Visa, Accel, Kilroy, Wells Fargo, Capital Pacfic, Hannig Law, & others joining this first class racing experience on the San Francisco Bay.

Hosted by the San Francisco Yacht Club in partnership with St. Francis Yacht Club, racing crews appointed by the sponsors or selected by the club navigate the competitive waters on StFYC’s J-22 fleet. Corporate sponsors receive activation, experiential, and marketing benefits for participating.

Team Sponsorship

Interested in representing your company in the Perkins Cup Corporate Challenge, but want to fundraise with your colleagues to do so? Many organizations provide the opportunity for their employees charitable donations to be matched, and some even offer a match for their fundraising efforts.

There are two ways to approach team sponsorship:

  • Fundraise with your colleagues to reserve a team boat
  • Each crew member donates half of the registration fee, and has their company match the other half

Companies Who Donate . . .

dollars or more earn local recognition in a press release & many other sponsor benefits.

dollars or more receive a Research Linking Award with National Recognition & many other sponsor benefits.
