We’re on a mission to reimagine the future and ignite the greatest possible good for generations to come. Our diverse team is comprised of passionate individuals with a shared commitment to community.
Culture and Values
At the Minneapolis Foundation, diversity, equity, and inclusion are embedded in our culture and the way we pursue our work. We are driven by passion and guided by these core values:
Change is personal.
We work to change ourselves through listening, learning, understanding and taking responsive action.
Internal mirrors external.
We reflect internally the community we hope to see externally.
Equity is a responsibility.
We see and remove personal and systemic barriers that hold inequities in place.
Proximity is necessary.
The closer we get, the more we understand, empathize, and transform; we can always get closer.
Civic participation is powerful.
Places and systems that value and work for everyone foster the multi-layered participation needed to solve complex problems.
Hope is essential.
Recognizing the challenges of today does not eliminate our ability to see –and create–a better future.
Talent and Culture Goals
We keep community at the center of our work and partner to realize community-driven solutions.
Inclusive and Collaborative
We strive to be an inclusive and collaborative organization that emphasizes both relational and technical competence.
Continuous Learning and Improvement
We have an unwavering commitment to collective growth, learning, and continuous improvement.
Impact-Oriented and Accountable
We continuously monitor and adjust our work to maximize our impact.
I really appreciate the inclusiveness and the feeling of togetherness that is deeply rooted in our culture and the way of working. Within the Minneapolis Foundation, our six values (including hope) are more than words – they are real. Being an entrepreneur is valued and promoted!”
