We Are Proud to Salute 2010 Communitas Award Nominee Northwestern Mutual (Milwaukee,WI)

2010 Communitas Award nominee Northwestern Mutual (Milwaukee, WI) has invited its employees to leave their own personal legacy by introducing the “Leaving a Legacy for Future Generations” volunteer program. The initiative symbolizes Chief Executive Officer Ed Zore’s retirement gift to employees – four paid hours in 2010 to volunteer for their choice of a nonprofit organization. The gift reflects Mr. Zore’s commitment to the community during his 41 years of civic leadership. The outgoing CEO has also made the Northwestern Mutual Foundation the leder in Wisconsin with donations totalling more than $15 Million during Fiscal Year 2009. The “Leaving a Legacy” initiative official began when 100 employees built a new playground funded by a $75,000 foundation grant. The employees – who can enter and track their volunteer hours at a company-sponsored website — were joined by company retirees, Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee children and their parents, and Ed and Diane Zore. These and related company-wide efforts are being nominated for a Communitas Award for Company Sponsored Volunteer Project. Please visit www.communitasawards.com for printable nomination forms and information on how to nominate a deserving individual and/or business. Communitas Awards judges continue to process submissions as they arrive at Association for Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP) headquarters.
