  1. Attending Fundraising Events For Nonprofit Organizations
    Most nonprofit organizations rely upon the generosity of donors for some or all of their funding. Fundraising is an activity of major importance to the charitable nonprofit community. Nonprofit organizations in Charlotte are no different and are constantly looking for ways to maximize their fundraising.

    Two examples of local fundraising for our company are The Isabella Santos Foundation Coffee for a Cure and the All in For Cancer events. You can reference Isabella Santos Foundation nonprofit events calendar.
  2. Donate To Your Favorite Charity
    There are numerous ways to make a donation to your favorite charity. Your donation can be made at whichever price point you feel comfortable with and can be packaged according to your preferences and convenience. Use your checkbook or donate online, donate your car or food for an event, arrange for planned giving, or give your time. The Isabella Santos Foundation Ambassador program encourages you to get your team of people working together collectively, as a group, to raise funds together. Or, if you are interested in taking support to the next level by making an annual gift of $5,000 or more, ISF’s Three Wish Circle is the place for you. Many organizations, including the Isabella Santos Foundation, are 501c3 nonprofits so your donations are tax deductible.
