Community Involvement



Together we stand against childhood cancer! Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under 15 in the United States, yet childhood cancer research and support services are vastly underfunded. Northwestern Mutual' s signature philanthropic program is accelerating the search for a cure to childhood cancer and helping families face the daily struggles of this disease.  Our efforts as a company and local agency in partnership with national and local non-profit organizations are vital to provide children battling this disease with help for today and hope for tomorrow.


Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Recognizes Northwestern Mutual for its Support of Childhood Cancer Research

It’s with heartfelt gratitude that we say thank you to Northwestern Mutual for raising critical funds for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. Together, Northwestern Mutual offices raised more than $515,000 through its Race for Research. These dollars will support 10,300 hours of childhood cancer research. Thank you Northwestern Mutual for joining us in the fight. You are making a difference!

Co-executive directors, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation




The mission of Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) is raise money and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily research into new treatments and cures. Our agency in North Carolina led Northwestern Mutual in ALSF Race For Research last year, raising a combined total of $73,554!  This money not only won the ALSF Race for Research but also funded 1,078 hours of research! 

Our 2015 goal is to raise $100,000 to fund a whole year of research and we’re off to a great start. We have raised $1,112 so far with lemonade stands, lunches, weight loss challenges, the NCAA ticket auction and much more in all 4 offices.

Mark your calendar for the ALSF Golf Tournament and Lemon Ball coming up on June 18th and 19th – details to follow.



In addition to funding research through Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, Northwestern Mutual encourages network agencies to work with local organizations that provide support services and have a direct local impact on families struggling with pediatric cancer. 

With this in mind, our agency has partnered with UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Pediatric Oncology Program to sponsor 2 annual pediatric cancer retreats for the next 5 years. These retreats provide pediatric cancer survivors and their families support, education, survivorship, and fun activities.
