Our Children, Our Neighborhoods, Our Community. Northern Trust supports organizations working in three core areas: education, social welfare, and arts and culture. We are committed to supporting education organizations that bring innovative, comprehensive and exemplary programs to students. Through our efforts to augment the priorities and goals of local education organizations, students in our global locations gain additional tools to strengthen their academic achievement and leadership development.
We support effective organizations working to measurably improve the quality of life in our focus communities. Health, basic human needs and community development programs provide invaluable support to people who face obstacles that impede their full participation in society.
And, we support organizations that bring opportunities to our communities, in order to create forums for social interaction that celebrate all of our diversity and heritage.
