Allstate, Tom Joyner Raising Scholarship Funds

Allstate, Tom Joyner Raising Scholarship Funds
Posted By: Neil Foote on September 05, 2012

Allstate and the Tom Joyner Foundation are asking alumni, students and supporters of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the country to do their part to raise scholarship funds as part of the fourth annual Allstate Quotes for Education program.

For every person who receives an insurance quote from an Allstate agent and mentions Quotes for Education between August 1 and Dec. 31, 2012, Allstate will donate $10, up to a total donation of $150,000. The funds will be donated to the Tom Joyner Foundation and earmarked for general scholarship funds to assist students attending HBCUs.

For the first time ever, participants in this program will also have a chance to vote for the HBCU of their choice to receive a separate $50,000 donation for scholarships specifically at that school.

This marks the second year that Allstate has partnered with the Tom Joyner Foundation for the Quotes for Education program.



Additionally, for the past eight years, Allstate has title-sponsored the Allstate Tom Joyner Family Reunion. Both programs are part of Allstate's year-round commitment to create, support and sponsor programs that empower the African-American community.

"This is a big help to these students," said Tom Joyner, chairman and founder of the 14-year-old foundation bearing his name. "Given this tough economy these days, every single dollar we can provide to help a student finish their education will make a difference."

To participate in the Quotes for Education program, HBCU supporters should visit www.tomjoynerfoundation.org or www.allstate.com/represent to find a nearby participating agent or receive a quote online, or call 855-REP-HBCU at any time to receive a quote from an Allstate representative. Supporters can also join and follow the conversation on Twitter via the hashtag #RepHBCU to encourage the participation of friends and family.
