GARDNERVILLE, Nev. —  The volunteer efforts of Gardnerville Allstate exclusive agency owner Stacy Trivitt helped secure a total of $2,000 in grants from The Allstate Foundation to support two local nonprofits.

Family Support Council of Douglas County and Suicide Prevention Network each received a $1,000 grant from The Allstate Foundation.

“As a small business owner in Gardnerville, I see firsthand the opportunities and challenges facing our area,” Trivitt said. “Giving back to my local community is tremendously rewarding and gives me a sense of purpose. I’m proud to support these local nonprofits’ work to make Gardnerville communities stronger.”

These two nonprofits are a part of 3,500 organizations this year that will receive The Allstate Foundation Helping Hands® in the Community grants secured by agency owners on behalf of organizations for which they volunteer. The grants support nonprofits focused on teen safe driving, disaster preparedness, hunger and other causes. This year, The Allstate Foundation will grant up to $7.5 million to nonprofits across the country.

The Helping Hands® grants are one example of Allstate’s tradition of service:

 

  • In the past 20 years, Allstate employees, agency owners and their staffs have donated more than $368 million and more than 4 million volunteer hours to charitable causes.

 

  • 63 percent of Allstate employees participated in the company’s 2016 Bring Out the Good Month workplace giving program, which raised more than $7.1 million in contributions. More than 8,800 nonprofit organizations benefited from this fundraising effort.
