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

Continual Learners

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


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


We respond creatively in moving forward to meet Missouri’s health care 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 and Communicative

We communicate e ffectively in order to achieve open dialogue internally and externally. We recognize the value in others’ opinions and actively seek and respect many di fferent 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 our internal and external customers’ trust by being honorable in all our relationships and providing value in every respect to our board, CAC, staff , business partners and the communities we serve.


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

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