Communities are powered by people.
Helping Hands® enhances the impact of Allstate agency owners and employees’ passion for volunteering by financially supporting the causes and organizations they care about most.
Dedicate hearts and hands.
Goodwill comes from dedication, not obligation. We’re proud to say that the Allstate agency force and employees live in line with this idea by dedicating over 250,000 volunteer hours each year to better the lives of their neighbors—and the wellbeing of their neighborhoods. By pursuing meaningful partnerships and offering grants to nonprofits where the Allstate agency force and employees volunteer, The Allstate Foundation serves to further their efforts and influence in local communities across the country.
The Allstate Foundation is dedicated to being a resource for agency owners and employees to make the world a better place. Here are some of the ways we help:
The Allstate Foundation Helping Hands® Grants
We strive to empower Allstaters to give back to their local communities and support the causes closest to their hearts. That’s why the invitation-only Helping Hands Grant program supports organizations they’re already passionate about. Those who volunteer four to sixteen hours with an organization can earn $500 or $1,000 to support the cause. Please note that The Allstate Foundation doesn’t accept any unsolicited grant applications.
The Allstate Foundation Emergency Response Fund
When natural disasters strike, we offer support for communities in need. From earthquakes to wildfires to hurricanes and more, we work to ensure no one is without food, water and shelter. After Hurricane Harvey and Irma, we teamed up with Feeding America and the American Red Cross to match the nearly 2,500 donations from Allstate employees and agency owners. We also worked with local nonprofits to help rebuild communities by contributing a new playground, homes and school books.
A team of Allstaters helped save this nonprofit’s work.
When fundraising didn’t cover the construction of housing for the homeless, Allstate agency owners and employees stepped up.
A few words about our Helping Hands
“The Allstate volunteers were amazing – prompt, hardworking and a joy to be around! We couldn’t have done it without them. On top of all that, we were blown away by the generous donation to help cancer-fighting families to better deal with the heavy financial burdens of a cancer diagnosis. The community investment that you have displayed is an inspiration to us all. “– Josephine M. Long, Development Director, New Day Foundation, Rochester, Michigan
“Our leadership team encourages us to find a cause we’re passionate about and volunteer either as part of Helping Hands or outside of the office on our own time. Volunteering is the part of our culture I identify with most.”– Dianne Kelley, Allstate Florida Region Sales Team
“It is rare to find an event going on in our community that Allstaters aren’t tied to in some way. The community knows Allstate, they know Helping Hands and they’ll stop us in our volunteer t-shirts. It makes us feel good.”– Chris Saunders, Allstate Brand Operations Customer Service Team
