The Chatham Athletic Foundation was created in 2005 by a group of local parents to promote youth athletics and to increase safety in athletics through public education programs. Much of the initial work has focused on reducing the local governments’ burden of improving and maintaining athletic fields within Chatham Borough and Township, and the Chatham School District.

The Allstate Foundation awards $2 million every year to nonprofit organizations across the country in honor of dedicated Allstate agency owners who give back. To be eligible for nomination, Allstate New Jersey agents must be a current and active volunteer or lead a nonprofit of their choice.
