The Family Umbrella Group is a 501(c)3 registered nonprofit that has been active on San Juan Island since 1998.
The founders recognized the need for every child to have the opportunity to go to preschool despite their family’s economic situation. Since its inception, the Family Umbrella Group has awarded over 200 scholarships to children whose families would not have otherwise been able to afford tuition.
Over and over early education studies have shown how important the preschool years are for the future success of children.
