Northwestern Mutual Nashville’s philanthropic program is grounded in a 154-year history of community support in the Nashville area, and this culture has attracted financial advisors and team members who embrace volunteer involvement and community leadership. Its dedicated volunteers and donors – both at the leadership level and team level – give generously of their time and financial support to help local nonprofit organizations serve those in need.
Since 1922, when Northwestern Mutual’s then-managing partner became a founding member of United Way in Nashville, its leaders have fostered a deep culture of philanthropy. Events range from sponsoring the large annual fundraising breakfast for Big Brothers/Big Sisters to serving monthly dinners (for 28 years) to families experiencing homelessness at Safe Haven Family Shelter. In each of its local offices, Northwestern Mutual is known for longstanding volunteer leadership and financial support. This includes philanthropic efforts initiated by individual advisors, totaling more than 1,700 hours of volunteer service in Nashville last year.
