Overview

Community Advisory Board Grant Program

Welcome and mahalo for visiting our website for the Community Advisory Grants of Young Brothers, Limited (YB). During the 100 plus years we have been in business, Young Brothers has supported numerous community needs over the years.

We want to strengthen Young Brothers' community gift giving commitment by providing a more formal way of contributing. Therefore, Young Brothers has established Community Advisory Boards (CAB) for the counties of Hawaii, Kauai and Maui. Leading citizens have been asked to volunteer on the CABs to give us feedback on their communities. Since the program's inception in 2001, Young Brothers contributed a total of nearly $889,000 to approximately 920 non-profit organizations throughout the state of Hawaii through this gift-giving program.

Charitable organizations must be designated 501(c)3 by the Internal Revenue Service. Projects eligible for grants are in the categories of health, education, civic and community services, youth activities, cultural enrichment, environment and special community projects.

Please click the links above to see specific advisory grant information.


About Us

Our mission is to provide the best inter-island freight handling and transportation services, through our involved, dedicated, and skilled people, delivering excellent customer service, in order to achieve long-term profitability and success.

In 1900, Herbert, William and Jack Young arrived in Honolulu to start a "bumboat" business called Young Brothers. Thirteen years later the firm was incorporated as Young Brothers, Limited, and expanded to provide ocean towing, rescue service and barge transportation between the islands. It got its start by providing ocean transportation services between Oahu and Molokai. Later, to separate harbor operations and charter activities from Young Brothers' interisland freight operations, Hawaiian Tug & Barge was formed as a sister company.

In 1999, Saltchuk Resources, Inc. of Seattle, Washington, the parent company of Foss Maritime, acquired Young Brothers and selected assets of Hawaiian Tug & Barge. In 2013 Hawaiian Tug & Barge was rebranded, and incorporated into the Foss Maritime fleet, while Young Brothers remains a wholly own subsidiary of Foss.

For more than a century, Young Brothers has grown to become Hawaii's foremost inter-island freight handling and transportation company. With its involved, dedicated and skilled people and full fleet of barges, tugs, and shoreside equipment, it offers fast, frequent and reliable service to the ports of Nawiliwili on Kauai, Kahului on Maui, Kaunakakai on Molokai, Kaumalapau on Lanai, Honolulu on Oahu, and Hilo and Kawaihae on the Island of Hawaii.

Thank you, Young Brothers! We are so grateful for the $1,000 donation to feed the homeless and hungry in Hilo. The Peanut Butter Ministry program at the Hilo United Methodist Church has been serving free meals twice weekly since 1981. In 2015, over 12,000 meals were served. The cooks and servers include various individuals and an ecumenical group including St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Holy Apostles, Holy Cross, Hilo Honpa Hongwanji, United Community Church, and Hilo United Methodist Church. Beyond the direct impact of serving the needy, the program also provides a volunteer setting for students from Hawaii Community College and UH Hilo as a way to accrue credit for one of their classes. The PBM program also serves as a placement for the court system for people who need to complete their community service hours as part of their discipline. Other volunteers include Boy Scouts who accumulate hours for merit badges and high school students whose volunteer hours are included in their resume when applying for college. High school groups such as the Key Club have donated "hygiene kits" and toys for the children. We are so grateful to have this support to continue the program. The clients are very appreciative, and we are especially touched when former clients occasionally drop off a cash donation and tell us that the PBM program helped them get through a tough time.

Mahalo to Young Brothers for their very generous $1500 grant to the Maui Humane Society which was used to fund vaccinations during our recent MASH no cost spay/neuter clinics. The MASH clinics provide free spay and neuter surgeries to the Maui Community. Young Brother’s generosity made it possible for MHS to also offer free vaccinations to dogs and cats seen at the March and April clinics. Such vaccinations protect animals, especially puppies and kittens, from serious viral illnesses such as panleukopenia in cats and parvovirus in dogs, thus saving animal lives. Thank you Young Brothers for caring so much about animals and Pet owners in our Community. Your support means the world to everyone at the Maui Humane Society!

Young Brothers' generous donations to four of NKCRC's sponsored projects enabled Kohala Youth Ranch to provide free equine-therapy workshops for at-risk youth; Kohala Community Athletic Association to provide free afterschool sports programs for about 400 boys and girls; Keiki Yoga Kohala to give free yoga classes to every student at Kohala Elementary School; and KCAD Lokahi Treatment Center to provide culturally appropriate drug treatment therapy to those battling meth addiction. Mahalo Young Brothers!

We can not do all the great things we are doing without the support of our community. Retro Farms thanks Young Brothers for their generous support and belief in our organization.

Over 1500 youth have been to our environmental education center and participated in our programs.. With the support of Young Brothers, we can " grow " our programs every year and contribute to the changing consciousness of the young people of our island and inspire them to become better stewards.

Girl Scouts of Hawai`i is grateful for the support from Young Brothers Kauai for our After School Leadership Program (ASLP). The generosity of Young Brothers allows Girl Scouts to deliver this unique leadership experience to girls in Title 1 schools and in under-resourced areas across Kaua`i. ASLP removes barriers to participation in Girl Scouting, such as economic strife, family and parental situations, and transportation challenges. Girls who participate in our after school programs develop strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth, as well as craft positive relationships with themselves and their communities. We thank Young Brothers for helping us reach out to more girls and provide a safe, challenging, and nurturing space to learn and grow for the Kaua`i girls that need it most!

Girl Scouts of Hawai`i is sincerely grateful to Young Brothers for their grant to repair and reopen Camp Pi`iholo. Camp is a traditional and integral part of Girl Scouting that cultivates leadership and problem solving skills. The unique, outdoor experience also inspires independence and empowers girls to connect to each other and their natural environment. Due to Pi`iholo’s closure, nearly 200 Maui girls and other community organizations that utilize the camp have been missing out on the pivotal, hands-on experience of camping. We are excited to start repairing our camp and have a fun, safe, and operative experience for our girls. Thank you, Young Brothers, for making our dreams of reopening Pi`iholo possible!

The $1,000 generously donated from Young Brothers will be used as a travel fund for Hawai‘i Island schools for any transportation costs incurred from participating in Hawai?i Wildlife Fund?s native plant propagation and out-planting field trips. With this program, Hawai?i Wildlife Fund will inspire future conservationists, scientists, and community members to “ha?aheo” (take pride) and “kuleana” (responsibility) in managing their coastal resources. This outreach travel fund will allow Ka?? schools with little to no funding to provide their students service learning experiences and access to their local natural and cultural resources along the coastline. We look forward to sending pictures and updates as the project moves forward. We want to provide a sincere mahalo nui loa to Young Brothers for helping us provide this rare opportunity to the Hawai?i Island community!

Kona Family Literacy and Interaction Program's (KFLIP's) Board of Directors and community volunteers gratefully acknowledge the Young Brothers Hawaii contribution through its annual community giving campaign. KFLIP was established by parents, community members and early childhood education professionals working together to assure that the young children of West Hawaii have access to books as well as other literacy and learning materials and that their parents and other caregivers have the support and resources they need to share a love of learning. The gift from Young Brothers will be used to purchase books through the Reading is FUNdamental (RIF) Program. RIF is the nation's largest non-profit literacy program whose mission is to motivate young young children to read by working with them, their parents, teachers and community members to make reading a fun and beneficial part of everyday life. Through its community partnerships with other child-serving organizations in West Hawaii, KFLIP is able to distribute new, free books and literacy resources to those children and families who need them the most.
