Bay View Resident Unites with Co-Workers to Support the United Way

Bay View Resident Unites with Co-Workers to Support the United Way

 

Rose Played a Key Role in Northwestern Mutual’s Efforts

 

When Bay View resident Jeff Rose started his career at Northwestern Mutual, he probably thought he would be using his skills and talent to enhance the company’s use of technology. After all, as an Information Systems Consultant, that’s what was listed on his job description.

 

This month, however, Rose added a new role to his resume: 2009 United Way volunteer. Rose is playing a key role in Northwestern Mutual’s campaign to support the United Way of Greater Milwaukee, helping to inspire fellow co-workers in the company’s largest department to give and get involved.

 

“One of the ways that Northwestern Mutual provides strength and consistency is through its commitment to the community, and people like Jeff have led the way,” said Deanna Tillisch, vice president of the Northwestern Mutual Foundation. “Our employee volunteers go above and beyond, and because of that, we’re able to address some of the big issues that our community faces.”

 

In 2009, Northwestern Mutual employees pledged to contribute $1,580,923 to the United Way of Milwaukee, surpassing last year’s record-setting total. Donations support the United Way of Milwaukee’s efforts to strengthen the community, including initiatives to reduce poverty, promote financial stability and strengthen early childhood education programs. The organization will support 80 agencies and 160 programs, helping more than 425,000 people in the area this year.

 

When it comes to supporting the United Way, Rose is a 10-year veteran. He has supported the cause in many ways, serving as a solicitor, department campaign chair and as a Loaned Executive to United Way in 2008.

 

“Some people wish things would change, but I like to make change happen,” Rose said. “I have great pride working for a company that is so involved in the community and provides opportunities for their employees to contribute. Each interaction with a United Way agency has helped me understand the challenges people face and has provided me opportunities to meet extraordinary people.”

 

This year marks the United Way of Greater Milwaukee’s 100 year anniversary. And every year since its origin in 1909, Northwestern Mutual has been a proud partner and a main supporter.

 

Thanks to the generosity of its employees, retirees and the Northwestern Mutual Foundation, the company continues to be the leading corporate donor to the organization, contributing more than $3.5 million in 2008. Final numbers for 2009 will be available later this year.
