Just asking for a quote can insure a student will get to attend and stay enrolled in a historically black college or university (HBCU).

Under the fourth annual Allstate Quotes for Education program, which is teaming up with the Tom Joyner Foundation, Allstate will donate $10, up to a total of $150,000, to the Foundation for every person who gets an estimate from an Allstate agent and mentions Quotes for Education from now through Dec. 31.

The funds will be earmarked for general scholarship funds to help students attending HBCUs.

“Each year, hundreds of students will be forced to drop out of college due to financial hardship,” Cheryl Harris, senior vice president at Allstate, and a Florida A&M University alumna, said in a news release announcing the program. “The Quotes for Education program brings to life a vision shared by Allstate and the Tom Joyner Foundation, which is to support programs for HBCUs that create educational opportunities for the next generation.”
