The program includes social media conversations and the #GetThereSafe flag on local campuses.

Greater Good Nonprofit Leaders Program

The foundation, in partnership with the Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management’s Center for Nonprofit Management, fosters leadership in the nonprofit sector through in-person academic sessions led by Kellogg faculty, one-on-one executive coaching, and individual development opportunities. Participants earn a certificate from the Allstate Foundation and the Kellogg Center for Nonprofit Management.

The foundation awards $500 grants to charitable, social, or humanitarian organizations with which employees of Allstate volunteer 25 hours or more or teams of employees who volunteer 20 hours or more.

Matching Grant Program for Higher Education

The foundation matches contributions made by full-time employees of Allstate to institutions of higher education on a one-for-one basis from $25 to $5,000 per employee, per year. Funds are directed toward the school’s general scholarship fund.

Moving Ahead Economic Empowerment Grants

The foundation awards grants to state domestic violence coalitions and local programs to enhance projects that help survivors overcome economic challenges and achieve financial independence. Special emphasis is directed toward financial education through the use of Allstate’s Moving Ahead Through Financial Management Curriculum; matched saving programs including Individual Development Accounts; and job readiness and job training.

Moving Ahead Through Financial Empowerment Curriculum

The foundation, in partnership with the National Network to End Domestic Violence, produces the Moving Ahead Through Financial Management Curriculum which packages tools and information designed to empower survivors to understand and manage their finances. The curriculum includes strategies for addressing financial and safety challenges with an abusive partner; personal and financial safety in an abusive relationship; dealing with the misuse of financial records; and tools to attain long-term economic empowerment.

Purple Purse

The foundation raises awareness and societal attitudes about domestic violence and financial abuse through Purple Purse, an online site designed like a fashion magazine. The site is designed to help the public recognize domestic, talk about it, and stop it. Visit for more information.

Regional Domestic Violence Grants

The foundation awards grants and local resources to national, statewide, and regional domestic violence organizations to provide economic empowerment services for survivors. Special emphasis is directed toward financial education through Moving Ahead Through Financial Management Curriculum; matched savings programs; job readiness and job training; and micro-enterprise. Each of Allstate’s 14 regions uses a competitive grant process.


The foundation provides important safety information to keep the public safe in the home, on the road, and in the community.
