Compassionate Business Partners

What is a Keys To Peace Compassionate Business Partner?

A Keys to Peace Compassionate  Business Partner—which used to be called a Business Member—is a business whose philosophy aligns with our mission of peace, tolerance, compassion, sustainability, and supports Keys To Peace and our beautiful Keys Community at large.

This can happen in various ways:

    • They act with compassion toward their employees, clients, the community and the general public
    • Their goal is peace however it can be manifested:
      • Education — donating their space for meditation or peace education or teaching a class on the same
      • Affiliation — giving a portion of their profit to local causes and teaming up with other groups who are doing this same thing
      • Innovation — developing a new way for the community to become aware of an issue, or help solve a problem
      • Using and/or developing sustainable business practices like recycling and reusing

However they do it, we hope our Compassionate Business Partners will consider it an honor to join with us as annually continuing the partnership. Each year your generous donations, in the form of your membership fees, bring us closer to attaining our goal of creating a compassionate community in our Florida Keys.

With their help—with your help—we can do this.

Some of the benefits of becoming a Compassionate Business Partner (CBP) include:

—A Listing on this page with the ability to also link your website to ours.

—Seeing your name in our monthly newsletter,  in the Directory of Business Members, which reaches over 1000 people, many in the Florida Keys.

And your donation helps us continue with our mission, which includes:

  2. Supporting our nonprofit partners which so far include:
    • Island Dolphin Care
