Northwestern Mutual launched its national philanthropic focus on childhood cancer in 2012 to find better cures and treatments for childhood cancer while also providing family, patient and survivor support. Northwestern Mutual-Chicago, through its offices in Downtown Chicago, Deerfield, Oak Brook and Rosemont, has raised more than $490,000 by hosting lemonade stands in their communities, participating in races as charity runners, playing in golf outings, contributing to Jeans Day, and attending special dinners.

In 2016, the firm was recognized by the Northwestern Mutual Foundation with the Childhood Cancer Impact Award.
