Employee volunteerism


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.
