Guess who is the “Human of the Year”?

October 19, 2018

Across the United States, local organizations are playing essential roles in addressing some of the country’s most urgent challenges. Now, you can help support their efforts.

This nationwide competition was created to recognize nonprofits that are driving positive change in their communities—and to help them make an even bigger impact.

Five winners, to be announced in spring 2019, will each receive $20,000 in funding from Allstate. One of the winners will additionally be presented with the Allstate Youth Empowerment Award.

Last year’s honorees demonstrated the variety of ways in which Americans are working to improve their communities—from Texas’s Con Mi MADRE, which helps young Latinas and their mothers prepare for high school and college, to South Carolina’s F.A.R.M.S., which provides legal services to aging small farmers.

If you know a nonprofit that is doing similarly great work, we invite you to submit a nomination for The 2019 Renewal Awards. Nominations close November 30, 2018. We will let finalists know their status by January 21, 2019.
