The Nobis Foundation was founded in Miami in 2014 as a nonprofit organization under section 501(c) (3). It is affiliated with Fundación Nobis, which is the acting philanthropic arm of Consorcio Nobis, one of Ecuador’s leading business groups.
The foundation carries forward the philosophical legacy of Luis Noboa Naranjo, Ecuador’s most important businessman of the 20th century, and father to Isabel Noboa. Mrs. Isabel Noboa, the founder of Consorcio Nobis, believes deeply in social responsibility and in the power of education to enable people to have an opportunity in life. She has and continues to dedicate significant time and resources to aid the underprivileged.
With four generations of family resources and strong values, from Luis Noboa Naranjo to his daughter, Isabel, to her son, Isidro (founder of the Nobis Foundation), and her grandchildren, the foundation upholds its founder’s passion for bringing relief and assistance to people with scarce economic resources, and to areas endangered by natural disasters and poverty.
