Our Unique and Comprehensive Approach
Since 2005, The Allstate Foundation has donated nearly $20
million to help break the cycle of violence. Working with our
nonprofit partners, we provide direct services and assistance to
survivors. We commission important research, bring experts together
to share ideas, and measure the impact of our work. Finally, we
raise awareness about the issue and encourage the public to take
action to end domestic violence.
The Allstate Foundation developed the Moving Ahead Grant
Programs to provide economic empowerment services and funding
support for survivors of domestic violence. Our grant programs
empower survivors to gain or regain control of their finances in
order to get free and stay free from violence. This includes
financial tools and information that can enable survivors of
domestic abuse to fully understand their financial circumstances
and to engage in short-term and long-term planning to accomplish
their personal goals.
The Allstate Foundation is committed to spreading
the best practices in economic advocacy. Through academic research
initiatives and capacity-building conferences, The Allstate
Foundation has become a leader in the financial empowerment of
survivors of domestic violence.
The Allstate Foundation is committed to learning and
publicizing more information surrounding this national crisis. For
example, The Allstate Foundation National Poll on Domestic Violence
revealed that approximately 6 out of 10 respondents agree that the
lack of money and a steady income is often a challenge faced by
survivors of domestic violence when leaving their abusers.
The Rutgers University School of Social Work
conducted a national evaluation of The Allstate Foundation Domestic
Violence Moving Ahead through Financial Management Curriculum. The
- 94% of survivor-respondents were no longer living with their
- 89% continued to utilize the curriculum after 6 months.
- 92% agreed that the curriculum was helpful.

Empowerment Symposium, where advocates share the best practices and
research about providing economic empowerment services to
The Allstate Foundation Domestic Violence Program raises
awareness and changes societal attitudes about domestic violence
and economic abuse. Through traditional and social media campaigns,

about domestic violence and economic abuse.
