To protect the health and safety of our patients and staff, we have suspended most in-person volunteer programs and services. As of July 2020, we began a phased approach to resuming in-person volunteering at several locations/programs in a limited capacity with existing volunteers. Any new volunteer opportunities will be on a limited basis and can be found in more detail on the individual volunteer program pages.

Employee volunteerism

mission matters

Mission Matters is an easy way for Allina Health employees to get engaged in their communities through volunteering and helping determine where Allina Health charitable contributions are made.

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