The Allstate Foundation Earmarks $1M for Hurricane Katrina Recovery

September 2, 2005

The Allstate Foundation is establishing a $1 million “Hurricane Recovery Fund” to aid the thousands of Hurricane Katrina victims. Foundation funds will be administered by organizations in the affected areas.

The Allstate Corporation’s 2005 Giving Campaign also is accepting donations for The American Red Cross Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund from Allstate’s more than 70,000 employees, agents and agency staff. The company will match these donations on a dollar-for-dollar basis with no upward limit.

“The Allstate Foundation Hurricane Recovery Fund” will support a variety of recovery efforts in affected communities. Specific needs may include: emergency shelter, food and clothing, health issues (as a direct result of the hurricane), social services, mental health recovery efforts, community clean up, rebuilding and restoring community emergency services, and assistance with home re-construction resident permit processing.

Established in 1952, The Allstate Foundation is an independent, charitable organization made possible by contributions from subsidiaries of The Allstate Corporation.

The Allstate Corporation is the nation’s largest publicly held personal lines insurer, with more than 17 million policyholders and approximately 13,600 exclusive agencies and financial professionals in the U.S. and Canada.
