The Allstate Foundation supports national and local programs that fit within three focus areas. Proposals for program support must address needs within one of the three focus areas to be considered for funding. Safe and vital communities programs should address catastrophe response, youth anti-violence, neighborhood revitalization, or teen safe driving. Economic empowerment programs should address financial and economic literacy, insurance education, or empowerment for victims of domestic violence. Tolerance, inclusion and diversity programs should address teaching tolerance to youth, ending hate crimes, and alleviating discrimination.
