Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer


Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15. ALSF funds cancer research, raises awareness, and supports the families of children with cancer. Since 2012, Northwestern Mutual has donated more than $20 million to support ALSF. Locally, the Raleigh office is proud to host events such as bake sales to raise money that will go toward changing the lives of children with cancer.

Northwestern Mutual Impact Day


Every year our office participates in an Impact Day where we partner with a local charity to help support their cause. In 2017, we volunteered at the Raleigh Rescue Mission to help organize the donation center. In 2018, we went to the Food Bank of Eastern and Central North Carolina where we packed over 1,000 meal boxes which translates to 22,613 meals for those in need.
