The ISA Foundation has awarded grants totaling $1.2 million to 40 U.S.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.
Formerly known as the Isagenix Legacy Foundation, the ISA Foundation has now given grants totaling more than $1.8 million to 51 recipients based in the United States since its launch in 2018.
The 40 new grants were awarded to nonprofits that align with the ISA Foundation’s mission to provide healthy nutrition and support for underserved children, wellness education for all, and aid for those affected by natural disasters. The grants were announced at last week’s Global Celebration 2019 event hosted by Isagenix International, the global health and wellness company that operates the ISA Foundation.
“The nonprofit community is a powerful force for good, so it’s a privilege to partner with these amazing grant recipients,” said Erik Coover, senior vice president of international marketing and culture at Isagenix International. “We’ve already heard incredible stories from the organizations we funded in January, from granting wishes to children with critical illnesses to providing food and support to at-risk orphans.”
The grants awarded in January were the foundation’s first and totaled $665,400.
In addition to announcing the latest grant recipients at Global Celebration, Isagenix leaders issued a call for donations. Isagenix customers, independent distributors and employees helped the ISA Foundation raised $500,000 in pledges and donations. One hundred percent of the donations will fund grants, as Isagenix covers all of the foundation’s administrative costs.
The 40 grants announced at Global Celebration range from $2,500 to $100,000. Six nonprofits are receiving $100,000 grants: Airline Ambassadors International; Compassion International Inc.; Make-A-Wish®; SERV International; Unstoppable Foundation; and Urban Impact Foundation.
