ISA Foundation Awards $1.2 Million In Grants To 40 Nonprofits

Posted By on August 28, 2019

The ISA Foundation has awarded grants totaling $1.2 million to 40 U.S.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, including 18 in Arizona totaling $327,500.

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 this week’s Global Celebration 2019 event in Nashville, Tennessee. The event was 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. They’re pouring their hearts and souls into communities around the world. We can’t wait to see how our latest grant recipients make a difference in the lives of the people they serve.”

The 18 recipients in Arizona are:

  • Make-A-Wish: $100,000
  • ASU Foundation for A New American University: $50,000
  • The Delia Foundation: $25,000
  • Feeding Matters: $25,000
  • Maggie’s Place: $15,000
  • House of Refuge: $10,000
  • Homeward Bound: $10,000
  • Future Forward Foundation: $10,000
  • Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center: $10,000
  • TigerMountain Foundation: $10,000
  • Habitat for Humanity International: $10,000

  • Dignity Health Foundation East Valley: $10,000
  • AZCEND: $5,000
  • Matthew’s Crossing: $5,000
  • Save the Family Foundation of Arizona: $2,500

Arizona-based grant recipients will use the funding for a variety of projects aimed at providing healthy nutrition and support for underserved children, wellness education for all, and aid for those affected by natural disasters.

While most of those projects will help people in the United States, two will help people outside the country.

  • The Delia Foundation will use its $25,000 grant to provide nutritional support to special needs orphans and families of foster children in Romania.
  • The ASU Foundation for A New American University will use its $50,000 grant to conduct an integrated behavior health needs assessment in Asia.
