Allstate and The Allstate Foundation announced today (November 6, 2012) that up to $1.2 million for Sandy relief and recovery efforts will be available through the creation of a recovery fund and a company match.
The new fund, supported through a $1 million allocation from The Allstate Foundation, will support local nonprofit organizations in affected areas that have capacity and capabilities but need resources to help people rebuild their lives. The Allstate Foundation will use its national reach into local communities to identify eligible nonprofit organizations. Local relationships of Allstate agents will be leveraged with awards made to organizations where agency owners volunteer. The identified nonprofits will be eligible for grants up to $5,000.
