Phoenix Business Journal Recognizes Isagenix Amongst Top 10 Largest Corporate Philanthropists
The Phoenix Business Journal has recognized Isagenix International, a global health and wellness company providing nutrition and lifestyle solutions, among the Valley’s 25 Largest Corporate Philanthropists. Isagenix took the No. 9 spot, ranked by 2016 cash contributions to Arizona charities.
“We are very humbled to be included among Arizona’s most philanthropic companies which is a testament to the generosity of our owners, employees, Associates and customers,” said Cheryl Lewis, vice president of corporate affairs. “Isagenix is committed to impacting not only our economy, but also our global and local communities. We support many civic and charitable organizations and our executives serve on numerous boards.
“We are particularly proud to be one of the largest global supporters of Make-A-Wish®, one of the largest and most respected charities in the world,” added Lewis. “Since 2012, Isagenix and its customers and employees have donated over $7.3 million and have helped grant 800 wishes to deserving children with serious illnesses in 12 countries.”
Isagenix, its customers, Associates, and employees contribute to many charities that align with their core values through its charitable giving program. Organizations receiving support from Isagenix include the Arizona Better Business Bureau (BBB), Food for Thought, Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center, the Town of Gilbert, and many others through the annual START Global Give Back Day which takes place May 20.
In 2016, Isagenix joined with BBB Arizona and the Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) to be the sole corporate sponsor of the Ethical Athlete Scholarship awards, which recognizes a male and a female high school athlete in Arizona every month of the school year for doing the “right thing.” Isagenix is also a presenting sponsor for the Arizona Cactus-Pine Girl Scout Council’s Badge Bash, a new signature event in 2017.
Last year alone, Isagenix donated a total of $1.6 million in cash contributions through direct corporate giving to charitable organizations. In addition, the company donates its products, including meal replacement bars and shakes, snacks, and electrolyte replacement products to charity auctions, and to nourish disaster victims and provide food for people in need. Isagenix also provides volunteers and meeting space to many Arizona charitable and civic organizations.
