Our 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 diverse 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.

Supporting Our People

We take a holistic approach to creating a work environment and systems that support all our employees. This includes:  

Competitive Compensation

Our approach to compensation reflects our commitment to both industry-leading excellence and equity, and we conduct compensation studies every two years to make sure we’re measuring up. 

Robust Benefits

Our health benefits are affordable and designed to meet our employee’s needs, with options for medical, dental, vision, and life insurance. We help employees save for retirement with 401(k) contributions of 3% of base pay after 30 days of employment, with an additional 5% after one year.

Hybrid Workplace

We offer flexible schedule options, while promoting team collaboration and a sense of community. Our employees work onsite two days per week, with the option for three days remote. We cover bus fare and parking fees at our office and serve lunch every Wednesday.

Generous Time Off

We provide three weeks of vacation in Year One and five weeks after three years, as well as sick leave accruing at one day per month. We also observe 8 holidays and close our office on summer Friday afternoons.

Professional Development

We are committed to nurturing our employees’ talents and have a dedicated budget for opportunities ranging from conferences and workshops to training courses and mentorship programs.

Well-Being Resources

Our efforts to provide a comfortable and welcoming workplace include an office quiet room for nursing and prayer and employee events ranging from cross-country ski outings to friends-and-family gatherings. 

Meet Our Team

Our staff has a diverse range of professional and lived experiences and a shared passion for our mission. Meet the team members who power our work.
