Allstate Foundation

Founded in 1952, The Allstate Foundation is an independent charitable organization funded by contributions from subsidiaries of The Allstate Corporation. The Allstate Foundation invests millions of dollars annually in communities and issues to protect and prepare Americans.

In 2009, The Allstate Foundation donated more than $18.2 million dollars to make their communities a better and safer place to live.

Partnership Agreements -- Recipients of grants of $25,000 or more will be required to enter into an agreement that details, in a collaborative way, program activities, timetables, planned communications, and program evaluation measures.

Agency Hands in the Community Grants -- Allstate agents find many ways to reach out to the communities where they live and work. To honor their involvement, The Allstate Foundation awards $1,000 grants to nonprofit organizations where Allstate agents volunteer.

Helping Hands Grant Program -- The Foundation offers special Helping Hands grants to charitable, social or humanitarian organizations where employees volunteer. Allstate volunteers can benefit the organization with a monetary gift through this program.

Does your chapter have any Allstate employees in it? Does your chapter have any Allstate agents in its city? If so, this may be a tremendous funding opportunity. The 'Agency Hands in the Communty Grants' appear to be open to multiple BDPA chapters.

Let us know if your chapter is interested in exploring this funding source for SITES funding.
