LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 13, 2024 /CSRwire/ - 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 Louisville resident Mark Kull, founder of Capitalis Planning Partners, a member of the Northwestern Mutual Private Client Group, has been named a 2024 Most Exceptional Community Service Award winner, receiving a $25,000 grant for Healing the Children (HTC) – Kentucky.

“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.”

HTC provides urgently needed quality medical care for underserved children around the world. Since 2020, Kull and his wife have fostered two children through HTC’s International Inbound program, which offers a home away from home for kids while they undergo medical treatment at Norton Children’s Hospital. In 2023, the Kull family fostered a 4-year-old boy, Nouri, who traveled from Burkina Faso to Lousville for four months. Upon Nouri’s arrival, the medical team discovered they needed to address his severe kidney stones and a massive abdominal hernia, in addition to heart surgery. In addition to providing a temporary home, guardianship and love for their foster children, the Kull family personally donated $20,000 to help fund HTC’s global mission.

“Through our work with HTC, we may not be solving all of the world’s problems, but we are solving these kid’s problems by opening our homes and providing loving support,” said Kull. “Thanks to this grant from Northwestern Mutual’s Community Service Awards program, additional funding will be allocated to HTC’s primary program areas, including its International Inbound program which allows even more children to have access to lifesaving medical care.”

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.
