State Farm Companies Foundation was established in 1963 as an independent private foundation funded by the State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company and State Farm Life Insurance Company. The Foundation provides support for key initiatives and scholarships, as well as associate-directed programs, including grants supporting volunteerism and matching gifts to charitable organizations and two- and four-year colleges and universities. These programs support the communities where State Farm associates live and work.
State Farm Companies Foundation does not provide scholarships directly to individuals. We provide funding to national, established scholarship programs such as National Merit Scholarship Corporation.
- Good Neighbor Scholarship: The State Farm Companies Foundation believes all children deserve an education that helps them reach their potential and prepares them for life. The State Farm Good Neighbor Scholarship Program was established to provide financial assistance to fifty high school seniors who plan to attend college, technical, or vocational school, but may not be able to meet the expenses of a higher education without such aid and often do not qualify for other scholarships.
