The Allstate Foundation Helps Build Safer, Stronger Families

01/25/2011 - NORTHBROOK, Ill.

The Allstate Foundation's philanthropic approach to inform, engage and empower Americans is catalyzing social change across the country. Whether it's breaking the cycle of domestic violence, making roads safer for teens, providing economic education or rebuilding communities, funding from The Allstate Foundation is helping individuals fulfill their hopes and dreams.

"We take our role as a corporate citizen seriously and focus on social issues where we can have meaningful impact," said Vicky Dinges, assistant vice president of public social responsibility, Allstate. "The Allstate Foundation draws on Allstate's cross-country network of employees and agency owners to deliver the skills, resources and services needed to prepare and protect Americans."

Through partnerships with nonprofit organizations in 2011, the Foundation will continue to broaden its reach to influence sustainable change. Funding applications for community service organizations that support the Foundation's mission will be accepted online starting Jan. 25 at Last year, The Allstate Foundation contributed more than $17.8 million to develop and implement practical, proven programs for thousands of individuals and families facing personal challenges and uncertainties.

In 2010, The Allstate Foundation helped community organizations in 33 states provide domestic violence survivors with economic empowerment services like financial education, job readiness assistance and asset-building resources. As a result, the Foundation helped more than 25,000 survivors take steps toward financial security and violence-free lives last year, up from more than 2,320 survivors served in 2009.

"For five years, The Allstate Foundation has been a driving force in working to end the cycle of domestic violence. Especially during these difficult economic times, their innovative economic empowerment projects and resources are making a real difference for survivors and their children," said Sue Else, president, National Network to End Domestic Violence.

The Allstate Foundation's Teen Safe Driving Program helped reduce teen crash fatalities over the last five years through teen-to-teen communications. In 2010, the Foundation involved more than 220,000 individuals in teen safe driving projects, increasing program participants by nearly 120 percent over 2009.

"By giving teens a voice in saving young lives on the road, The Allstate Foundation is bringing an important, but often overlooked, resource to the tragic teen driving epidemic in our nation," said Sandy Spavone, executive director, National Organizations for Youth Safety.

The Foundation's long-time support for Junior Achievement's Economics for Success curriculum provided life lessons on money management and careers to its millionth student in 2010. The Allstate Foundation also continued to help rebuild diverse neighborhoods in New Orleans.

Since 1952, the Foundation has invested more than $237 million in communities across the country.
