Northwestern Mutual

Our Teams in Action

Across the country and right here at home, our employees and financial representatives are leading the way to a better world by giving their time and talent.  

Our Teams In Action

Reaching out to the world around them, our employees and local offices are a force for good—giving of their time, talent and financial support to causes that are close to their hearts.

Days of Sharing

Employees: Leading by Example.

Our employees are rallying their communities to support nonprofits that help change lives and shape a stronger world.

In 2013, more than 1,800 Northwestern Mutual employees donated nearly 27,000 volunteer hours. And, thanks to their generosity, we’re among the largest corporate donors to the United Way of Greater Milwaukee and the United Performing Arts Fund.

In turn, we back causes our employees believe in through:

  • Days of Sharing, which awards $225,000 in total grants to 25 nonprofits nominated by employees each year. 
  • Volunteer Support Program, which honors employees who volunteer more than 40 hours a year through a $500 donation to their local nonprofit.
  • Our Community Impact Family

Teams: Taking Action for Others

Whether supporting families fighting childhood cancer or organizing local fundraising events for the greater good, our financial representatives are changing their communities for the better. In recognition of their dedication, we offer:

  • Community Service Awards, are given to financial professionals who have served their communities. Winners receive grants for their nonprofits.
Race for Research
  • Childhood Cancer Impact Awards, given to four offices for their outstanding commitment to local non-profits. The partner organization receives a $50,000 grant on behalf of the winning office.
