Donate Now

While I strongly encourage you to make gifts directly to the nonprofits we support, I also welcome gifts to my foundation, which can be made online through secure servers at or by check mailed to:

The Isabel Allende Foundation
116 Caledonia Street
Sausalito, CA 94965

Please note that my Foundation can accept only unrestricted gifts—that is, gifts that are not earmarked for specific purposes and do not include conditions or contingencies. Before making a gift, I ask that you please review our policy and guidelines regarding donations to the Foundation. You can also view the certification of our 501(c)(3) status.

In acknowledgement of your generosity, you will receive a letter expressing our gratitude; this letter will also serve as an acknowledgement of your gift for tax purposes.

Thank you for your concern, compassion and contributions.
