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.
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 advisors who have served their communities. Winners receive grants for their nonprofits.
- 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.
