Isagenix International placed No. 8 on the Phoenix Business Journal’s 2018 Largest Phoenix-Area Corporate Philanthropists list.
The list ranked 29 companies based on their 2017 cash contributions to Arizona charities. Isagenix contributed $6.4 million in monetary and product donations to charitable and disaster-relief causes around the world, with $2.35 million in cash going to Arizona groups including Make-A-Wish®, Girl Scouts Arizona Cactus-Pine and the Better Business Bureau Foundation.
For example, Isagenix served as the sole corporate sponsor of the Better Business Bureau’s Ethical Athlete Scholarship. The company’s $50,000 investment supported recognition of male and female high school athletes in Arizona each month of the school year for doing the right thing.
“We strive to make a lasting difference in people’s lives, from helping customers nourish their bodies and improve their health to partnering with nonprofits so they can have the greatest impact possible on the communities they serve,” said Isagenix Chief Executive Officer Travis Ogden. “Isagenix is honored to be recognized as one of the Largest Corporate Philanthropists, and we look forward to giving back to others for many years to come.”
As part of its commitment to philanthropy, Isagenix established the Isagenix Legacy Foundation in August 2018. The 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization seeks to create sustainable impact globally through volunteer efforts and charitable contributions focused on healthy nutrition for underserved children, wellness education for all, and aid for those affected by natural disasters.
