Community Involvement

Bo and his team are building brighter futures by helping his clients achieve lifelong financial security and by giving back to the communities he serves. He is dedicated to improving the lives of children and families. Together he and Northwestern Mutual support programs that make a lasting impact in the community.

Alex's Lemonade Stand

Northwestern Mutual of Cleveland is a proud participant in Northwestern Mutual’s philanthropic program to accelerate the search for a cure to childhood cancer and to provide support to kids and families facing the daily struggles of this disease. Bo dreams of a day when children and their families won’t face the fear and uncertainty of a cancer diagnosis. Through the foundation, Northwestern Mutual is working to accelerate the search for cures for childhood cancer and provide support for families fighting the disease. Since 2012, there have been great strides in raising awareness and raising funds for the cause through nonprofit partners—Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and other family support nonprofits across the country.

Footpath Foundation

Bo is an avid supporter of the Footpath Foundation which helps at-risk, underprivileged and foster care kids in the Cleveland area thrive. The program works with other nonprofits to connect children in need with valuable life experiences. Footpath raises the funds necessary to send underprivileged kids to various activities and helps coordinate the programs. Additionally, Footpath educates and advocates to communities and coporations about the challenges underprivileged and at-risk children face each day. Footpath engages them to help improve the lives of Cleveland's youth through fundraising and volunteering.
