YB Maui County Community Advisory Board Members are:
During the 100 plus years we have been in business, Young Brothers (YB) 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.

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.

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!
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!
We are so grateful to you, Young Brothers, for your very generous donation to our school! Here is a link to a quick video of our preschool children thanking you (https://youtu.be/FDjzj5sx2Qo). We also look forward to sending you their cards of thanks. Because of you, we will be able to provide a more safe, healthy learning environment for our little ones. Thank you!
Mahalo! Now we can go to the Kaunakakai fire station on Friday--the children are all so excited! We'll stop at Kamoi Snack 'n Go on the way back for ice cream!
