Allstate And Tom Joyner Raise $141K
Allstate, the Tom Joyner Foundation, and alumni, students, and supporters of historically black colleges and universities across the country raised more than $141,000 in scholarship funds as part of the 2012 Allstate Quotes for Education program.

For every person who received an insurance quote from an Allstate agent and mentioned Quotes for Education between August 1 and December 31, 2012, Allstate donated $10. The funds have been donated to Joyner's Foundation, earmarked for scholarships for students attending HBCUs. This is the second year Allstate has partnered with the Tom Joyner Foundation for the Quotes for Education program. For the past nine 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.
