Kinship Vacations is a social enterprise. What does that mean? A social enterprise is an organization that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and environmental well-being.
Ashley (the owner of Kinship Vacations), went to get an MBA at the George Washington University so she could pursue a career in International Development and build a social enterprise. While she isn’t working in the International Development field, she felt it important to commit to being a social enterprise. It has always been important for Ashley to give back to and serve her community.
Kinship Vacations has selected two charitable organizations to pledge 10% of all profits to: :
Both of these highly rated and efficiently run charities provide opportunities for families to be together during times of emergency. At Kinship Vacations, we are all about keeping families together and maintaining relationships, so we thought it best to support these charities.
We also believe our clients will feel good knowing that when they take a vacations to reconnect with their loved ones, they are enabling other families to do the same when they need it the most.

Ronald McDonald Charities keep families with sick children close to each other and the care and resources they need mainly through the Ronald McDonald House Program. A Ronald McDonald House is that “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost. RMHC also provides rooms in hospitals for families to rest, access to healthcare through mobile healthcare services, and scholarships and grants.
Some of Ashley’s family and friends have stayed in Ronald McDonald Houses during cancer treatments and they are forever grateful for the home-like accommodations which provide a measure of comfort during an otherwise stressful time. Kinship Vacations is honored to pledge monetary support to Ronald McDonald House Charities.
