Northwestern Mutual Grants $295,000 To Childhood Cancer Nonprofits Through Childhood Cancer Impact Awards

Company recognizes offices nationwide for their commitment to national philanthropic cause

PR Newswire

MILWAUKEE, July 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- This year alone, more than 15,000 children will be diagnosed with childhood cancer. Northwestern Mutual, along with its financial advisors and employees, is devoted to accelerating the search for better treatments and cures for childhood cancer, while also supporting families battling the disease and survivors struggling with the late effects of treatment. Through its Foundation, the company is recognizing seven of its offices for their notable support of the cause through the 2021 Childhood Cancer Impact Awards.

"Nationwide, our advisors and staff continue to demonstrate that their offices are more than just a place to work, but a place where they can make a difference in their community and in the lives of others," said Eric Christophersen, president, Northwestern Mutual Foundation. "We're honored to recognize our passionate and dedicated advisors as they continue to go above and beyond in their efforts to help create better outcomes for children with cancer."

The company has contributed $295,000 in grants on behalf of the 2021 award recipients. Each winning office selects a childhood cancer organization that inspires them in their own community to receive funding. Three offices have been selected as runners-up for the award, each receiving a $15,000 grant. Four offices have been selected as winners and are each recognized with a $50,000 grant. This year's Most Exceptional winner was awarded an additional $50,000, for a total grant amount of $100,000.
