Join Our Team


The Bainum Family Foundation strives to build an equitable society that supports all children and families, particularly those who have been systematically excluded from opportunity, so that all children can thrive. Advancing diversity, equity and inclusion is at the heart of everything we do both internally and in our partner communities. When you join our team, you’ll help us advance these important efforts — and you’ll also experience an engaging and supportive work environment that goes beyond traditional pay and benefits.  

Here’s how:

Collaborative and Inclusive Work Environment 

We strive to foster a supportive, team-oriented and equity-driven culture. And on this journey to become a better organization, we have made the following commitments: 

  • Transparency in decision-making and transparent practices that meet diverse needs and value different perspectives 
  • Team and staff meetings that encourage both diversity of thought and collaborative conversations — creating space for all voices 
  • Advanced tools and technology that foster social connections and drive productivity among our team and with external partners 
  • Cross-departmental initiatives that cultivate a team environment in which individual strengths are leveraged in a variety of projects regardless of your role in the organization   

Balanced Work-Life Integration

We make it possible for staff to strike the right balance with: 

  • Flexible work arrangements, with a hybrid of in-person and remote work 
  • Technology and equipment stipend, to equip you to work from wherever you are 
  • Paid time off (starting at 18 days per year) 
  • Paid holidays (fixed and floating), including a winter break 
  • Family and medical leave, with job and income protection 

Emphasis on Employee Well-Being

We take a holistic approach to well-being — offering compensation, benefits, programs and resources that address financial, physical, mental, and social well-being, including: 

  • Competitive base salaries with opportunities for growth
  • Affordable top-tier health insurance programs, including dental and vision insurance 
  • Mental health supports and resources, including an Employee Assistance Program 
  • Fitness/Wellness benefits and resources, including an annual stipend 
  • Financial planning supports, including matching contributions for our employee retirement plan benefit, fully paid life and disability insurance, and educational resources 
  • Social events and activities to facilitate and encourage employee connection 
  • Ergonomic office equipment, including a stipend for home-office setup 
  • Charitable gift matching benefit 

Continuous Learning and Development

We live and promote our core value of Continuous Learning every day, and we encourage team members to develop the necessary skills and competencies to thrive in their roles. We do this by providing: 

  • Developmental and/or cross-functional job assignments 
  • Skill-strengthening opportunities that center racial equity 
  • Unlimited job-related training funds 
  • Tuition reimbursement as part of a generous professional development benefit 
  • Ongoing coaching and reflection at the individual, team and organizational levels 
  • Staff retreats and other opportunities for collective growth 

Financial Sustainability

We exist because of a growing endowment with strong financial stewardship — one that ensures continued resources and stability to drive long-term results. It enables us to: 

  • Operate without a need to fundraise 
  • Offer competitive total rewards to our staff 
  • Fund the comprehensive tools and resources that maximize our work 
  • Fund projects and programs that work to build an equitable society
