ISA Foundation Awards Nearly $470,000 to U.S-Based Nonprofits


GILBERT, Ariz., July 22, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The latest round of ISA Foundation grants, which total nearly $470,000, will help nonprofits with projects ranging from teaching kids in the United States to cook healthy meals to building and rehabilitating school kitchens in Kenya.

The foundation, which focuses on healthy nutrition and support for underserved children, wellness education for all, aid for those affected by natural disasters, and the pursuit of racial equality, has awarded $468,922 total to 11 U.S.-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits. With this sixth round of funding, the foundation operated by Isagenix International has granted more than $4.4 million to nonprofit partners in the U.S. and Canada.

"With each grant cycle, Isagenix helps magnify the impact nonprofits have on communities around the world, which is a tremendous honor," said Justin Powell, Isagenix chief legal officer and ISA Foundation board member. "We're grateful to partner with organizations that share our belief that everyone, everywhere deserves to lead a healthy, joyful, and abundant life."

The latest ISA Foundation grantees include first-time recipient Common Threads. Based in Austin, Texas, the nonprofit provides U.S. children and families cooking and nutrition education to encourage healthy habits that contribute to wellness. Common Threads will use its $90,000 grant to support programs in underserved communities across Chicago, Miami, and Pittsburgh during the 2021-2022 school year and the following summer. The nonprofit expects the funding will help it engage 408-786 students and 132-480 parents and educators.

The programs will be provided in partnership with schools and include:

Additional Grant Recipients
The ISA Foundation awarded its largest grant, $94,862, to the Unstoppable Foundation. Based in Culver City, California, the nonprofit humanitarian organization brings sustainable education to children and communities in developing countries, thereby creating a safer and more just world for everyone. The Unstoppable Foundation will use the funds in part to build a new school kitchen for the villages of Kadzandani and Ezamoyo in Kenya and to rehabilitate a dilapidated school kitchen in the village of Sosoni in Kenya so it meets national standards. Each kitchen will be used to cook food for the school lunch program.

Isagenix Co-Founders Jim and Kathy Coover are closely connected to the Unstoppable Foundation, having generously donated to the nonprofit for the past decade. The Coovers recently received the Unstoppable Legacy Award in recognition of how their donations have furthered the foundation's mission to ensure every child has access to the lifelong gift of education.

Additional ISA Foundation grant recipients include:
