Make an impact.

Giving back to the communities where we live and work is in Northern Trust’s DNA – and a huge reason why we’ve been successful for more than 130 years. Every Northern Trust employee plays the role of steward and is asked to consider sustainable business performance improvements. Volunteerism, philanthropy, sound business practices and ethics, and a conservation-minded approach to protecting the world are essential elements of our mission and culture.

Northern Trust encourages employees to give through a 1:1 matching program where Northern Trust can match their annual contributions up to $2,000. More importantly, Northern Trust employees invest their time: In 2018, employees across the globe collectively volunteered nearly 120,000 hours to charities, serving in a variety of projects, including board membership for local nonprofits, tutoring children after school, and cleaning up local parks.
