Community Involvement

Making an Impact on the Community- To grow and prosper, communities require care.  It is the work of many hands ... sharing many talents, many hours, and many gifts. In giving their time and their talents, by caring for each other, the members of the community care for the larger enterprise.  It is with this concept in mind that the members of Northwestern Mutual's Greater Milwaukee office spend their time and efforts giving back to the community.

Alex's Lemonade Stand – Northwestern Mutual's signature philanthropic program is accelerating the search for a cure to childhood cancer. Alex's Lemonade Stand was started when a 4-year-old, Alex, wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since the first stand, the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation was created bearing her name. It has evolved into a national fundraising movement. Each of the Northwestern Mutual of Greater Milwaukee's five offices host their own version of a lemonade stand to raise funds. Financial Representatives, staff members and family members all come together to sell lemonade and raise funds for childhood cancer research. The Greater Milwaukee group has raised money every year at their local lemonade stands.














Race for Reseach and the 42nd Annual Roots & Wings Race for Research is a friendly fundraising competition among Northwestern Mutual network offices. Every dollar raised goes to fund childhood cancer research with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. We celebrate and honor the dollars raised at Roots & Wings at the Northwestern Mutual Annual Meeting. Members from the Northwestern Mutual Home Office and the field are invited to walk 1 mile or participate in either a 5K or 10K run along the Milwaukee lakefront to kick off Annual Meeting at the end of every July. T-shirts are usually designed by every office to show their support of their local office pride. 













Northwestern Mutual Greater Milwaukee Golf Outing benefiting Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation- Beginning in June 2016, the Greater Milwaukee agency has hosted a golf outing each year in efforts to support fundraising for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. Each year the agency also picks a local family to sponsor and part of the proceeds are given to the family whose child has battled cancer or is still battling cancer. The golf outing is held in June each year at the Ozaukee Country Club. The day is filled with supportive Financial Representatives, staff, and clients from throughout the agency as well as sponsors who all come together to raise money for this amazing cause. From the outings we have held thus far, we have been able to raise over $150,000 total for Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.
















Feeding America - Beginning in 2016, the Greater Milwaukee Diversity and Inclusion Council has brought together Financial Representatives, staff members and their families to partner with Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin to help sort and package meals for people in need in our community. Our 2016 volunteer event brought together 61 members from our firm to help sort and move over 11 tons of frozen meat, onions and canned goods. Our 2017 volunteer event brought together over 50 members from our firm to help sort frozen foods, box up cereal and stuff bags for an upcoming 7K race that benefitted Feeding America. Our 2018 volunteer event brought together 60 members from our firm to sort nearly 22,000 pounds of apples and potatoes--which was an unofficial Feeding America record!










We want to extend a thank you to those who continue to support the events alongside us at Northwestern Mutual- Greater Milwaukee! We continue to grow stronger each year in our ability to give back to the community and it's our hope to inspire others to action.
