How We Help

ITB Marine Group has a long-standing commitment to give back to the communities where we work and live.

ITB Marine Group will hold its 8th Annual Christmas Party & Fundraiser Dinner in 2014 in support of The Province’s Empty Stocking Fund and The Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. Last year we raised $24,000 for these charities.

The Province’s Empty Stocking Fund – a service dedicated to making the holidays brighter for many of those in BC who are less fortunate, giving hundreds of thousands of disadvantaged children and needy families a cause to celebrate.

The Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society – a non-profit organization with a mission to empower people to nourish themselves by providing access to healthy food, education and training.

Other Places We Help

VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation – Provides the funds essential to ensure Vancouver General Hospital and UBC Hospital and their health teams can deliver BC’s best, most specialized care for adults.

SALTS – A registered charity in Canada and the US that offers sail training to young people ages 13 to 25. The Society operates two tall ships, the Pacific Grace and Pacific Swift. Each year, 1700 young people have the life changing experience of learning to sail a tall ship with SALTS. Young people from all socio-economic backgrounds participate, and a bursary program helps cover costs for those who cannot afford to pay.
