How We Work

Teamwork Oriented

We believe that cooperative efforts drawing on the strengths of multiple staff members achieve the best results for the communities we serve, while fostering staff learning and highlighting the capabilities and contributions of each staff member.

Continual Learners

We actively work to broaden our knowledge on health issues in Missouri, cultivate professional skills, encourage healthy behaviors, and we are willing to accept alternative perspectives other than our own.

Dedicated

We are committed to the MFH mission through our work and community partnerships.

Innovative

We respond creatively in moving forward to meet Missouri’s health challenges. We are not constrained by traditional views of how a foundation works, and always seek approaches that provide maximum benefit to our population while pursuing a flexible grantmaking style.

Open & Communicative

We communicate effectively in order to achieve open dialogue internally and externally. We recognize the value of others’ opinions and actively seek and respect many different viewpoints on the issues we face and the work we do.

People of Integrity

We strive to treat people with honesty, fairness, and compassion. We conduct business in an ethical manner, earning trust by being honorable in all our relationships and providing value in every respect to our Board, staff, partners, and the communities we serve.

Respectful

We treat everyone with dignity and courtesy. Understanding that different points of view will allow us to enhance our knowledge and performance, we listen to and learn from everyone.

Balanced in Work and Life

We recognize that employees rise to their highest level of work performance when they are supported in maintaining their health and family/community relationships.

We Value Diversity
