Our Community

Lending a hand in our community.

As part of Northwestern Mutual, we're proud to help accelerate the search for better childhood cancer treatments while supporting families undergoing treatment, and survivors from late effects. Here are some of the organizations we support:

Alex's Lemonade Stand

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer (ALSF)

ALSF funds cancer research, raises awareness, and supports the families of children with cancer. Since 2012, Northwestern Mutual, its employees, and financial professionals like me have donated more than $20 million to support ALSF and fund over 400,000 research hours.

Wounded Warriors Project (WWP)

WWP began in 2003 as a small, grassroots effort providing simple care and comfort items to the hospital bedsides of the first wounded service members returning home from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. As their post-service needs evolved, so have our programs and services, which include mental health, career counseling, and long-term rehabilitative care — improving the lives of millions of warriors and their families. This effort requires the passion and commitment of friends, supporters, and like-minded organizations who enable us to fulfill our mission and guarantee, as much as possible, that when those who serve come home, they’re afforded every opportunity to be as successful as a civilian as they were in the military.

Miracle Travel Works

Miracle Travel Works was founded in 2010 by a small group of close friends who witnessed firsthand the financial difficulties experienced by family and good friends as they attempted to cope with their children’s terminal and chronic illnesses. We realized the great need that these, and many other, families have and we also realized that we can do more than just make a small donation.

School Districts and Further Local Involvement

We believe in paying it forward to schools & churches to support the continuing education & faith of the youth.

Wounded Heroes

Wounded Heroes is a 501(c)(3) non-profit entity that serves Heroes – current and former members of the United States Armed Forces, police, firefighters, paramedics, EMS personnel and healthcare workers.  All Heroes have wounds from their service. Some wounds are visible. Some are not. Emotional injuries, mental injuries, brain injuries, are just as tender as the broken bones we can see. We mentor to reintegrate into civilian life.
