The Allstate Foundation of Canada was established in 1977 to provide donations and grants to non-profit, registered charitable organizations in Canada.
We support organizations and initiatives that focus on fostering an environment of inclusion, involvement and empowerment for those who experience barriers to participation – whether it be within their community, career, or personal life.
Our two main pillars are investing in our community through grants and in-kind contributions, and empowering employees to get involved by giving back.
Investing in our Community:
We prioritize causes and projects that work to create a more inclusive world for people with disabilities and those experiencing financial hardship. Some of the organizations we have recently supported include Old Brewery Mission, DeRo Foundation, The Shoebox Project for Women, and Inclusion Canada (formerly the Canadian Association for Community Living).

Allstate employees constantly strive to be a force for good in the communities where they live and work. We are proud to offer employees flexible opportunities through our community volunteering and giving programs, as well as celebrate their dedication to being a difference maker.
- Volunteerism & the Good Hands Grant program: We support employee volunteerism, and reward their acts of service through our Good Hands Grant program.
- Giving & Matching: We help connect our employees with causes they care about most by offering them the ability to donate to thousands of registered Canadian charities. We also run matching campaigns throughout the year to increase the impact of employee giving.
- Community Hero Award: This annual award is presented to Allstate Insurance Agency (AIA) employees who go above and beyond in support of their community. The award recognizes those AIA employees who are role models for community outreach, service and volunteerism. The Allstate Community Hero Award celebrates multiple regional recipients and one national recipient. Each recipient also chooses a Canadian charity to receive a donation from The Allstate Foundation of Canada.
