 Famed Author, Educator And Professor Dennis Kimbro Donates Books

Famed author, educator and business school professor Dennis Kimbro, Ph.D. has donated five autographed copies of his book, The Wealth Choice, to the next five donors who give at least $100.00 to the Clark Atlanta University’s School of the Month campaign during the week of August 25th to August 29th.

Kimbro, who has traveled the work sharing his ideas on wealth creation, management and entrepreneurship, teaches in the university’s School of Business Administration. He is a recipient of the Dale Carnegie Personal Achievement award.

Says Kimbro, “In my book, The Wealth Choice, one of the major areas of focus is on a success secret that all of Black America’s most successful investors know when it comes to wealth creation: Know thyself. Knowing one’s self causes you to dig deep into understanding the gifts you possess versus truly being gifted.”

Allstate and the Tom Joyner Foundation Work to Support Historically Black Colleges and Universities with Annual Quotes for Education Program

HBCU Students, Alumni and Supporters Can Help Raise $250,000 in Scholarship Funds to Help Keep HBCUs Strong

Quote & Vote To Show Your School Pride

For Every Quote You Get, Allstate Will Donate $10 To Support  HBCU’s  & Vote Everyday For Your Favorite HBCU  To Help Them Win $50K.  Click Here To Get Started.

NORTHBROOK, Ill., August 5, 2014 – As students head back to campus this fall, they’ll embrace the same long-standing traditions as generations of college students who came before them. This year, Allstate and the Tom Joyner Foundation are encouraging students, alumni and supporters of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the country to recall the traditions, pride, and love they have for their HBCUs – and help keep them strong by participating in the Allstate Quotes for Education program in states where it’s available.

For every person who receives an insurance quote from a participating Allstate agent between August 1 and Nov. 30, 2014, and mentions “Quotes for Education,” Allstate will donate $10 -up to a total donation of $200,000. These funds will be donated to the Tom Joyner Foundation and earmarked for general scholarship funds to assist students attending HBCUs.

In addition, for the third year in a row, everyone will also have the opportunity to cast their vote for the HBCU of their choice to win an additional $50,000 in scholarship funding. In 2013, Grambling State University received the most votes and distributed scholarship funds to 50 students.

“Allstate and the Tom Joyner Foundation are proud to work together on the 2014 Quotes for Education program,” said Cheryl Harris, Senior Vice President at Allstate and alumna of Florida A&M University. “HBCUs are hurting financially more than ever, and with assistance programs declining dramatically over the past couple of years, we realize the importance of investing in the future of HBCU students across the country. We hope the entire HBCU community will quote and vote, and join us in saying HBC ‘I Owe’ U.”

According to a 2013 report by the Council for Aid to Education, only 10 percent of HBCU alumni actively give back to their alma maters. This year, Allstate and the Tom Joyner Foundation are challenging the HBCU community to help pay it forward and help future generations of HBCU students by participating in the Quotes for Education program.

This marks the fourth year that Allstate has worked with the Tom Joyner Foundation for the Quotes for Education program. Additionally, for the past ten years, Allstate has been the title-sponsor of the Allstate Tom Joyner Family Reunion, an annual event taking place in Orlando during Labor Day weekend. Both of these programs are part of Allstate’s year-round commitment to programs that empower the African-American community.

“I owe so much to my alma mater, Tuskegee University, and am honored to give back to the institution that made me the man I am today,” said Tom Joyner, chairman and founder of the 15-year-old foundation. “My goal is to help grow zealous, educated and world-changing graduates. Not only will a quote invest in a student’s life and career, but it will also help ensure the future of the entire HBCU community.”
