Northwestern Mutual has announced through its foundation that it has donated more than $1.5 million to support its non-profit partners in their response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The company will donate $1 million to Feeding America for efforts nationwide, and an additional $50,000 to Feeding America in the Milwaukee community. Regionally, the Milwaukee-based company is also donating 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. The donations also include a financial commitment from the Northwestern Mutual Foundation to the Greater Milwaukee Foundation’s MKE Responds Fund.
Northwestern Mutual is also expediting its annual grant of $250,000 to the American Red Cross disaster recovery program.
“During this time of uncertainty, our non-profit community will become an even more critical provider of assistance, as well as hope,” said Eric Christophersen, president of Northwestern Mutual Foundation. “Through our non-profit partners, who are working tirelessly to respond to the elevated needs of our communities, it is of the utmost importance to us to serve as a resource as we face this unprecedented health crisis together.”
