The Josh Jerman Foundation was established to provide assistance to deserving charities and nonprofit organizations throughout Maui County. The Foundation has contributed to a number of organizations, including Project S.E.A.-Link, Maui Arts & Cultural Center, Family Life Church, Maui AIDS Foundation, Whale Trust, Nature Conservancy of Hawai‘i, Women Helping Women of Maui County and Haleakalä Waldorf School.

The Josh Jerman Foundation is also the driving force behind the Josh Jerman Maui Nui Scholarship Fund, which provides access to post-secondary education to young scholars who may not have the financial means to fulfill their educational goals.

Since 2004, the Foundation has inspired college-bound youth to return home to Maui County after graduation—where they can make a difference. The Josh Jerman Maui Nui Scholarship Fund was built upon the principle that education is key to both individual success and the health of our community, and since its inception, the program has created an immeasurable impact on the lives of scholarship recipients.
