Isagenix’s nonprofit foundation, the ISA Foundation, announced $601,000 in grants to help 21 U.S.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations.
The grants, which will help with projects ranging from nourishing food-insecure families to assisting communities after natural disasters, range from $5,000 to $100,000 and will aid people in the United States, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Haiti. The 21 recipients include:
- Emeril Lagasse Foundation: Based in New Orleans, Louisiana, the foundation’s mission is to create opportunities to inspire, mentor and enable youth to reach their full potential through culinary, nutrition and arts education. The ISA Foundation’s $33,000 grant will support a new program to teach healthy living habits to fatherless youth in New Orleans.
- IDEA Public Schools: Based in Weslaco, Texas, IDEA provides high-quality prekindergarten through 12th grade education with an emphasis on low-income communities and ensures students have fresh, healthy food at school. The ISA Foundation’s $40,000 grant will help expand IDEA’s farming program, which infuses classrooms with hands-on learning focused on cultivating and eating fresh, locally grown food.
- Partnership for a Healthier America: Based in Washington, D.C., the nonprofit’s goal is that all children—especially those disproportionately affected—will live healthier lives, growing up to be adults free from obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other chronic conditions. The ISA Foundation’s $50,000 grant will help the group expand its fresh food initiative to uplift the health and well-being of food-insecure children and families nationwide by providing more fresh food in food banks.
“Each grant cycle has brought tremendous nonprofit organizations to our attention, allowing us to partner with people who are as passionate as we are about providing much-needed assistance to communities around the world,” said Isagenix Chief Legal Officer and ISA Foundation Board Member Justin Powell. “We’re honored to help our latest grant recipients fulfill their missions and make a lasting impact.”
Since its inception in 2018, the ISA Foundation has awarded more than $2.5 million to nonprofit partners in the United States and Canada that align with the foundation’s focus on healthy nutrition and support for underserved children, wellness education for all, and aid for those affected by natural disasters.
