Civic 50 Lauds Allstate For Its Good Works

NORTHBROOK, Ill., Dec. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A woman living at an abuse shelter in Kentucky was able to save $2,000 and through matching funds provided by a grant from The Allstate Foundation, she bought a Volkswagen Beetle that she drives to get around safely. The vehicle provides her independence to help her get past an abusive relationship.

This is just one small but powerful example of how Allstate and The Allstate Foundation are helping to make a difference for individuals in communities across the country. For the second year in a row, Allstate was named to The Civic 50, which recognizes companies for their commitment to improve the quality of life in the communities where they do business. The Civic 50 is produced by the National Conference on Citizenship and Points of Light, and published by Bloomberg News.

"Allstate's corporate responsibility programs reach deep into communities across the country," said Vicky Dinges, senior vice president of corporate responsibility at Allstate. "We are financially empowering thousands of domestic violence survivors, making the roads safer for the next generation of drivers, and helping Chicago's neighborhoods become safer places to live and work."

Notably, during a first-of-its-kind summit of nonprofit leaders hosted by The Allstate Foundation in conjunction with its sixtieth anniversary, Allstate found a new way to deliver greater social impact. In collaboration with summit participants, The Allstate Foundation created a $600,000 grant program designed to strengthen the nonprofit sector in the areas of organizational, technological and leadership development.  

"Grant programs like this are rare in the philanthropic community. By combining business know-how with nonprofit expertise, we're making a real difference in peoples' lives," said Dinges. "Collaborating side-by-side with nonprofits not only deepens the impact of our work and of our partners; it helps us think differently about how we can benefit local communities on a greater level."
