  • 1 person is interested

The Ridgeview Friends & Family Committee exists to promote and recognize support of Ridgeview Foundation. It organizes outreach opportunities that foster positive recognition of Ridgeview, enhances pride in the community and strengthens relationships with Ridgeview.

The Ridgeview Friends & Family Committee is seeking an energetic volunteer to help engage our community involvement through fundraising events and/or activities. There are many local organizations within our service area that participate in philanthropic activities, and we would love to have someone who can seek out those opportunities. This individual must have passion for volunteering and a heart for helping others.

The community engagement coordinator will help create relationships with local establishments, such as restaurants, boutiques or grocery stores in Ridgeview’s service area. This position requires the planning and coordinating of at least two fundraising events. Our "Donate While You Dine" event at the Waconia Culver’s is one of our community events we host twice a year. This role involves coordinating event date and time, recruitment of volunteers, and event promotion through flyers and social media.

Committee involvement can include any of the following:

  • 6 meetings/year (we realize not everyone can attend every meeting due to work commitments)
    • Discuss funding opportunities
    • Strategize for outreach opportunities
    • Plan events
    • Hear leadership and general Ridgeview updates
    • Celebrate successes
  • Events: Spring and Fall Adopt-a-Highway Cleanup, Plant Sale, Rooftop Garden Maintenance, Culver’s "Donate While You Dine" event, Golf & Taste Celebration, RidgeWell 5K
  • Engage with the Ridgeview Foundation Facebook and Instagram pages (sharing, liking and commenting on posts)
  • Steward and cultivate current RFF members
  • Identify and solicit prospective RFF members
  • Assistance in annual employee campaign
  • General ambassadorship and positive influence among peers and other employees

RFF is the largest giving club in the Foundation, which supports Ridgeview in its mission to provide the highest level of health care to its patients and families.

Our goal as a committee is to promote the good work Ridgeview does for our community. We ideally would like representation from as many Ridgeview communities as possible for the most effective outreach. The more hands, the easier and more fun it is! We have a fun group of people who genuinely care about each other and appreciate the importance of belonging. We would love for you to join us!

Mission Statement

Imagine if area families and loved ones didn’t have the facilities, technology or skilled doctors to turn to at Ridgeview. Without these significant facilities, Ridgeview couldn’t enhance the lives of those entering our world, or those leaving it. But the future of Ridgeview is challenged. With the changing face of health care, margins are shrinking. Our area’s population is rapidly growing and becoming more diverse. Ridgeview’s leadership, doctors, nurses and staff will continue to strive for more and better care, facilities and technology. Support from donors is more important now than ever before.


Founded in 1978, Ridgeview Foundation has made an indelible impact by helping Ridgeview Medical Center deliver on its mission to enhance the health of people it serves by creating a culture that nurtures the whole person: mind, body and spirit. The Foundation, an independent, nonprofit organization, is guided by a volunteer board of directors whose members are representative of communities within Ridgeview’s service area. Together, staff and the boards of directors of the Foundation and Ridgeview Medical Center collaborate to identify funding priorities.
