"Business Resource Councils at Northern Trust are a professional playground where one's potential and passions are honed professionally. Taking time off at work and being with the team in a different role helped me achieve a work-life balance while equally fulfilling leadership potentials. It helped me create my personal brand, and to me, the BRCs in action was testimony that the company is a facet for human development and holistic growth."

Make an Impact on your Communities

Around the world, Northern Trust partners give freely of their time and talent to work for the greater good of their communities. To empower these efforts, Northern Trust offers two paid days off to volunteer for charities of a partners’ choice, in addition to connecting employees with not-for-profit organizations that can benefit from their unique talent. The result is over one million volunteer hours in the last ten years—and countless communities made stronger.




Global Giving

Last year, Northern Trust made charitable contributions of $16.16 million globally. Our volunteer efforts and contributions are focused on four key areas: educational excellence, food security, accessible healthcare and affordable housing.


COVID 19 Response

Northern Trust provided $3 million in Covid support to charities and NGOs around the world, including those that provide healthcare, food and other humanitarian relief.


Volunteerism in Action

During October 2021, Northern Trust employees collectively gave over 12,000 volunteer service hours to more than 800 charitable organizations. Building on our legacy of service, for every 1 hour of volunteering performed during Achieving Greater Together, Northern Trust has committed to donating 50 meals, providing approximately 602,500 meals to hunger relief organizations around the globe.
