The foundation of Jonas is giving back by providing greater access to clean water. We provide high-fashion, stylish umbrellas to you and give the opportunity to make a difference in the global community through clean-water projects. Every Jonas umbrella directly supports a specific clean-water project, so you can connect deeply with the Jonas cause and trace their positive impact. Jonas is committed to helping you “Stay Dry. Give Water. Make a Difference.”
What's in a name?
Jonas is named after Jonas Hanway, a traveler and philanthropist who lived in the 1700’s. He is thought to have been the first Londoner to carry an umbrella. Hanway was often heckled by coachmen who feared the popularity of the umbrella would cut into their wages. Jonas founded the Magdalen Hospital and was well known for his citizenship and universal kindness.
It is our promise as an organization to always keep corporate responsibility at the core of our business. We were founded on the deep desire to help the local and global community with social, environmental, and health issues. We will continue to make our business decisions based on how we can most impact those communities and areas. We will do our best to be clear and transparent with all of our transactions so that you feel confident we are always sticking to our goal of making a difference. That is our promise to you.
