Community Involvement

At Northwestern Mutual, we know that a healthy community is not merely beneficial, but necessary for our collective success.   It is our mission to leave a legacy of service not only to our clients, but to our community as a whole. We are committed to sharing our time, resources, and efforts with organizations and initiatives that promote long term vitality and positive change.

Northwestern Mutual Volunteer Efforts

  As part of our volunteer commitment, in the year 2015 Northwestern Mutual Portland launched Giving Back 2015: a collective effort to donate 2,015 hours of community service in 2015!  We know that, by working together, we can not only serve the needs of our community and our agency, but that we can inspire each other to give. 






































































The Children's Cancer Association didn't start with a foundation, it started with a family. One who faced its own battle with serious pediatric illness almost two decades ago in Portland, Oregon. From that experience came a passionate commitment and focus: To deliver the resources, the friendship and the healing power of music to families facing the same challenges.


Unlike many organizations dedicated to the worthy goal of someday finding a cure for cancer, CCA is all about today. We specialize on the moment, delivering immediate help to kids and teens facing life-threatening illness. We long for the day when there's a cure for cancer; but until that day arrives, we're there for kids facing the biggest battle of their lives who need our help, today.
