Allstate and The Allstate Foundation Pledge $1.5 million to Hurricane Harvey Relief

The Allstate Corporation and The Allstate Foundation are implementing a four-part, $1.5-million plan to support Hurricane Harvey relief and recovery programs.

 “Allstate has a long history of helping people rebuild their lives after disaster strikes,” said Tom Wilson, Allstate chairman and chief executive officer. “Our help goes beyond resolving insurance claims to include employee and agency owner volunteer and fundraising efforts, educating consumers on how to navigate the rebuilding process and supporting social service organizations. Being in Good Hands is more than a slogan; it is a reality.”

Allstate’s plan includes:

  • Matching Contributions – Employee and agency owner contributions to Feeding America and the American Red Cross will be matched on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to $250,000.
  • Youth Empowerment – Students from around the country involved in the WE Schools programs that raise money for Hurricane Harvey victims will have their fundraising matched on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to $250,000.
  • Public Education – “Rebuilding: Fully Utilizing Insurance and Government Support” sessions will be open to the general public to provide information about how to navigate insurance claims and government support programs.
  • Nonprofit Organizations – The Allstate Foundation, in conjunction with more than 500 Allstate agencies in the impacted areas, will make grants directly to local social-service organizations.
