A foundation honoring Ethan Chapin and his love of life, people and new adventures.

Ethan loved life. Always laughing. Always smiling.
Ethan was our storyteller, hard worker and friend maker.


Continuing Ethan's love of life and passion for people is our mission statement. Together with scholarships, encouragement and love, we can make others shine through Ethan.

We created a foundation in Ethan's name to prioritize scholarship funding in Skagit Valley. We focus on Conway students, graduating from high schools in the area, who are going on to post-high school academics. We also look to scholarship kids attending the University of Idaho. 

Thank you,
Jim & Stacy Chapin

Telling Ethan's Story

The Boy Who Wore Blue is the story of a happy kiddo who loves his family, life and new adventures. He's a funny, kind and inclusive friend to all, especially his best friends - a triplet brother and sister. The detailed illustrations depict everyday activities and highlight how a sunny disposition (and a smile) empower us to enjoy life's little moments. Although the book is for children 3+, its message will resonate with readers of all ages. 


A portion of the proceeds from each book will benefit the Ethan's Smile Foundation.

Take Ethan's Smile with you everywhere

Our friends at Arlington Hardware created an Ethan's Smile line to share goodness every day. All proceeds benefit the Ethan's Smile Foundation.
