Northwestern Mutual Foundation donates nearly a half a million to local nonprofits

The Northwestern Mutual Foundation will award grants totaling $450,000 to seven nonprofit organizations that promote cultural and sports organizations.
“Events and attractions create more than just good memories,” said Deanna Tillisch. “They also help to attract and retain businesses and a talented workforce to Milwaukee. These kinds of investments help to strengthen our economy by making the Milwaukee area a great place to live, work and play.”
The Milwaukee Art Museum’s MAM After Dark program is one of the monthly social art programs benefitting from the Northwestern Mutual Foundation.
 “MAM After Dark provides exceptional opportunities for creative, educational programming in the Milwaukee area, attracting visitors from all over the region, including people from outside of Milwaukee,” said Daniel Keegan, director, Milwaukee Art Museum. “The support of the Northwestern Mutual Foundation makes it possible to introduce diverse audiences to new cultures, music, and art forms.”
Other nonprofit programs shaping Milwaukee’s cultural personality and receiving a Northwestern Mutual Foundation grants include Brewers Community Foundation, Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, Milwaukee Public Museum, Milwaukee World Festival, Inc., Milwaukee Zoological Society and the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center.
