Community involvement

Allina Health is known for expert treatment of illness and injury. But our service to the community goes far deeper than our clinics and hospitals.

As a not-for profit health system, we partner and give back to the community in many different ways—all focused on improving the health of those we serve.

Employee volunteerism


Mission Matters helps Allina Health employees get involved in their communities through volunteering. The program also determines where Allina Health charitable contributions are made.

After employees log 20 volunteer hours with a qualifying organization on, a $100 Dollars for Doers contribution is made to the nonprofit organization of their choice.

If at least five employees participate in a charity walk, run or ride, Allina Health contributes $250 to the event's benefiting organization. Dollars increase with participation, up to $5,000.
