New Funding Opportunity from The Allstate Foundation

Tuesday, 24 August 2021

The Allstate Foundation is thrilled to announce a new funding opportunity for youth empowerment and relationship violence prevention programs that are advancing racial equity. 

The ongoing pandemic and economic and social injustice crises have greatly escalated the need to increase resources to foster young people’s ability to become equitable and inclusive leaders and establish healthy personal relationships that are free of violence.

This is why The Allstate Foundation will provide $3 million in grants to nonprofit programs addressing the following focus areas:

Relationship Violence Prevention

  • Innovative, local and culturally relevant healthy relationship education and relationship violence prevention-related programming for teens and young adults of color and/or other marginalized communities.

Inclusive Leadership for Youth and Educators

  • Service-learning programs that provide resources and experiences for youth to engage in civic and community activities that increase their capacity to be inclusive leaders, develop a sense of collective responsibility, and take action for social change and racial equity.
  • Positive youth development programs that empower youth to reach their full potential as leaders who demonstrate and promote equity and inclusion within their learning environments and communities. Programs should be youth centered and designed to allow youth to actively participate in anti-racism, anti-bias, and equity-focused practice to increase their understanding and competency in advancing racial equity as well as the more conventional youth development cognitive, psychological and behavioral gains. 
  • Professional development programs for educators (e.g., teachers, administrators, out-of-school program providers, etc.) to improve their culturally responsive teaching practices that result in safe, affirming and equitable learning environments in which all youth are able to thrive.
