State Farm® and collaborative organizations support community initiatives.
American Red Cross
State Farm's mission to help people recover from the unexpected is right in line with the American Red Cross. As a Corporate Member of the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program, State Farm gifts the American Red Cross $1 million to help ensure that the Red Cross has the resources to proactively assist with national disaster preparedness and recovery efforts. We support programs that help keep neighborhoods safe and prepared for emergencies.
Habitat for Humanity®
Habitat for Humanity's commitment to providing families with safe, decent, affordable shelter aligns with State Farm's commitment to helping to build safe, strong, and better educated communities. We have had a national relationship with Habitat since 1994, and since 2007 we've served as the official corporate sponsor of Habitat for Humanity Youth Programs with a sponsorship commitment of more than $1 million in grants each year. In addition to the national Youth Programs sponsorship, local State Farm offices also contribute directly to many Habitat affiliates in their communities.
Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC)
Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) is a national community development organization that creates change in local neighborhoods across the country. LISC has a comprehensive community development program called "Building Sustainable Communities" that creates stronger communities in several ways. These efforts include education, affordable housing, economic development, financial opportunity, community safety, health, and policy and research.
State Farm is proud to provide grants and loans to support multiple LISC programs.
Enterprise Community Partners
Enterprise Community Partners (ECP) works to create affordable housing opportunities for low- and moderate-income families. ECP lends funds and provides expertise to finance and manage affordable housing developments. It also works to improve public policy and advocacy with a goal to end housing insecurity.
Raza Development Fund
The mission of the Raza Development Fund (RDF) is to invest capital and create financing solutions to increase opportunities for the Latino community and low-income families.
State Farm provides loans and philanthropic grants to support RDF's work. This includes loans for housing, community facilities, transit-oriented development, health care clinics, and charter schools. Grant funds help support Latino leadership programs with several colleges and universities.
All classrooms should have necessary supplies for students to use to master their learning concepts and reach their greatest potential, which is why State Farm supports DonorsChoose.org. DonorsChoose.org makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need by giving people a simple, accountable and personal way to address educational inequity. Public school teachers post project requests and the community decides which projects they will support by donating as little as $1 or donating the full project request. Once a project is fully funded, DonorsChoose.org will ship the requested funded materials to the school.
State Farm prioritizes funding towards classroom projects that are the result of recovering from a natural disaster and classroom projects that aid in teaching financial education to assist in preparing students for the workforce.
Our promise to build safer, stronger, and better educated communities extends to all our neighbors. And we team up with great organizations in the African American, Asian Pacific Islander, and Hispanic communities to make good on that promise.
