MILWAUKEE, March 4, 2024 /3BL/ - Northwestern Mutual is celebrating the outstanding volunteerism of its financial professionals through its annual Community Service Awards (CSA) program. This year, 16 financial advisors and representatives were recognized for their transformational impact on the communities they serve, totaling $295,000 in grants to nonprofits nationwide. Local Milwaukee-area resident Bradley May, a wealth management advisor at Northwestern Mutual – Milwaukee, has been named a 2024 Most Exceptional Community Service Award winner, receiving a $25,000 grant for Solstice Sanctuary.

“At Northwestern Mutual we believe in putting people first. This value is highlighted through our dedicated financial advisors who are not only building better tomorrows for their clients, but also for their communities,” said Steve Radke, president of the Northwestern Mutual Foundation. “Through their philanthropic work, our advisors are donating their time and talents to help local nonprofit organizations.”

Solstice Sanctuary was co-founded by May’s wife and close friends and provides a safe space for animals and humans who have suffered through trauma and abuse, creating a community where both animals and humans can heal, learn, grow and feel safe. May and his wife both grew up with animals and experienced firsthand how animals and humans can heal through strong bonds.

“Since 2021, I’ve dedicated myself to Solstice Sanctuary and its mission to support others and rescue animals,” said May. “This grant, through Northwestern Mutual’s Community Service Awards Program, will allow us to expand the program and help countless others, allowing them to heal and learn.”

Now in its 29th year, Northwestern Mutual, through its Foundation and Community Service Awards program, has donated nearly $7 million to nonprofits supported by financial professionals in their communities across the country.
