Community Involvement

Childhood Cancer Program

Britt Yackey is proud to support Northwestern Mutual's Childhood Cancer Program.

As a business, we help people secure their futures and reach for their dreams.  For many children, however, cancer puts their future in jeopardy. 

We’re Raising Awareness and Funding for Childhood Cancer Research

Pediatric cancer research and support services are vastly and consistently underfunded, yet cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children and adolescents in the United States, according to the National Cancer Institute.  We’re working to accelerate the search for cures for childhood cancer and provide support for families fighting the disease. We’re partnering with the Northwestern Mutual Foundation and our non-profit partner Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to raise critical dollars for research. We provide help for today and hope for tomorrow.

We’re Fighting Childhood Cancer ‘One Cup at A Time’

In 2015, we built lemonade stands and hosted them throughout Chicago. We also had a Golf Outing, ran for the cause, and sponsored Casual Days at our office. In that year, our firm raised more than $130,000 which will help fund 2,600 hours of research. We were also the recipient of the Northwestern Mutual Foundation Childhood Cancer Impact Award. This award recognizes our philanthropic outreach and will provide a $50,000 grant to childhood cancer programs.

We’re Supporting Kids and their Families
In 2016, we have provided care packages for 200 hospitalized children at The University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital.

We’re looking forward to making an even bigger impact in the years ahead.  Check out our firm’s Community Involvement and follow us on Twitter to learn more about how we’re fighting childhood cancer, one cup at a time.
