Company provides support to Feeding America and other community nonprofits
MILWAUKEE, March 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Northwestern Mutual, through its Foundation, today announced a donation of more than $1.5 million to support its nonprofit partners nationwide in leading efforts to provide immediate relief in response to the effects of COVID-19. These grants will address the anticipated food and essential supply needs facing those in our communities.
To support those in need of critical household supplies and food, the company will be donating $1 million to Feeding America® for efforts nationwide and an additional $50,000 to Feeding America in the Milwaukee community. Regionally, the company is also providing donations to Dominican Center, Metcalfe Park Community Bridges, Milwaukee Christian Center, Ronald McDonald House Charities Eastern Wisconsin, United Performing Arts Fund, and the United Way of Milwaukee and New York City. These funds also include a financial commitment from the Foundation to the Greater Milwaukee Foundation‘s MKE Responds Fund.
Additionally, Northwestern Mutual is expediting its annual grant of $250,000 to the American Red Cross‘ Disaster Recovery program which enables relief efforts, including storage, food, shelter, supplies and medical and emotional support.
To align with Northwestern Mutual’s Childhood Cancer Program, the firm will also contribute to its national childhood cancer research partner, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, to support the expansion of its Travel for Care Fund. The contribution will help address the challenges facing childhood cancer families who are at an increased risk due to compromised immune systems and shortages of hospital resources as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is expanding the program to allow for more extended hotel stays for those who need to be isolated close to their hospitals, as well as grocery support to families in need.
Since its inception in 1992, the Northwestern Mutual Foundation has given more than $370 million to improve the lives of children and families in the communities it serves.
