Northwestern Mutual's Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation

Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra "Alex" Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope.

Northwestern Mutual's Partnership with Masonic Children's Hospital

Northwestern Mutual launched its Childhood Cancer Program in 2012 to accelerate the search for a cure to pediatric cancer while providing support to families battling the disease and survivors struggling with treatment late effects. To date, Northwestern Mutual and its network have raised more than $17 million for the cause and helped to fund over 200,000 hours of research to help discover life-saving treatments for kids. 

In December 2017, the Kyle Rudolph End Zone was unveiled at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children's Hospital. Northwestern Mutual - Minneapolis donated $150,000 to build out the basketball court in the therapuetic pay space, which will be enjoyed by patients and their families during their stay.
