Guys with Ties would not be where we are and as effective in helping to make a better community without our selected charities, corporate sponsors, and partner organizations that work together to make our events happen.

Selected Charities

The Isabella Santos Foundation

In 2009, the Isabella Santos Foundation (ISF) was established through Isabella’s parents to raise awareness and research funds for Neuroblastoma, and received it’s 501(c)(3) status in 2010.  At the time, Isabella’s parents were in hopes that ISF could help fund research projects potentially to save Isabella’s life. Although Isabella is no longer with us, we hope another child can be saved and will continue to raise money and awareness for the awful disease that stole her life.  Over the last six years ISF has donated over $1,500,000 for Neuroblastoma research and other children’s cancer charities.
