We're Raising Awareness and Funding for Childhood Cancer Research

Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15 years old, according to the National Cancer Institute. However, financial support for childhood cancer research remains vastly underfunded. We're on a mission to change that. We're partnering with the Northwestern Mutual Foundation and our non-profit partner Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation to raise critical dollars for research.

Every year, members of our organization impact the fight against childhood cancer by raising funds for life-saving research during the “Annual Race for Research” in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Since 2013, we have raised over $20,000 through this race. The donation, which was made to Alex's Lemonade Stand, has funded over 400 hours of research.

We're Leading by Example

In addition to Northwestern Mutual - Downtown Denvers' commitment to fighting childhood cancer, our team members donate their time and talent as well as their financial support to charities and causes that matter to them and our community. They are rebuilding neighborhoods, helping students succeed, broadening perspectives and opportunities for the disadvantaged, and improving the quality of life for people with life-altering illnesses.


This summer our interns and some of our team members volunteered at A Precious Child in Broomfield, Colorado. A Precious Child helps children in need by giving them the opportunities and resources needed to achieve their full potential. Our team and our interns loved being able to give back to our community!

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity was established in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller to address the need for affordable housing. Since then more than 600,000 homes have been built. These homes are sold with a zero-interest loan and families must invest $1,500 to pay for closing costs and put in 250 sweat-equity hours (per applicant) to help build their own home, as well as the homes of other Habitat families. Northwestern Mutual in Downtown Denver sponsored a build for Habitat for Humanity- Metro Denver.
