Warm Heart Foundation
Every year in October, Iglu in Chiang Mai accepts donations of old computers, tablets, and mobile phones at its Nimmanhaemin office. Citizens throughout the city drop off unwanted computer equipment to be recycled or refurbished and all reusable electronics are delivered to the Warm Heart Foundation, an organization that helps support, educate, and empower needy children from isolated Hill Tribe and Thai villages in Chiang Mai province.

Thai Freedom House
Thai Freedom House’s (TFH) mission is to provide opportunities for displaced minority groups that have slipped through the cracks of society; living almost invisibly around us. TFH has evolved from a basic education center to a full resource center, with a social enterprise, that addresses the varied needs of the population of refugees from Burma and minority peoples of Thailand.
Iglu, in partnership with various professional organizations and associations in the Chiang Mai area, hosts a hugely successful fundraiser, known as the Live Mentor Auction.

“Home of Caring Friends” is a part of the Ubolratana Foundation under the royal patronage of Her Majesty the Queen. Baan Mitratorn was set up for orphans affected by HIV/AIDS, both HIV infected and non HIV infected, abused children, children under inappropriate care, and children afflicted by hardships.
Each year, Iglu joins thousands for the Run to Give event in Chiang Mai. The event consists of a 3-km Fun Run and an 8-km Mini-Marathon, with the proceeds going to Baan Mitratorn.
