How We Give
We see a future without childhood cancer.
Since 2012, Northwestern Mutual’s employees and financial professionals are committed to accelerating the search for a cure for childhood cancer while providing support to families facing the disease and survivors struggling with treatment late effects.
To date, Northwestern Mutual has funded more than 240,000 hours of research through our exclusive partnership with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. We are proud to say there are children who are cancer free today because of this funding.
