Employee Benefits

The Rockefeller Foundation’s vast array of benefits support our colleagues and their families in many areas of their lives — from their health, to work/life balance to community engagement. We take a holistic approach to support our team’s overall energy and vitality.

Generous Health and Wellness Benefits 

The Foundation offers competitive and comprehensive medical, dental, and vision plans for employees, their spouses, domestic partners, and dependent children. We offer a generous sick leave policy so colleagues can take time off to recover from an injury or illness or care for family members who are unwell. Additionally, RF employees can avail themselves to a robust suite of wellness opportunities, such as support for new parents, paid family leave, and an annually employer-funded account that supports a healthy lifestyle.

We also believe in supporting the mental health of our colleagues and offer generous mental health support options and coverage through our medical plan. We encourage our team members to take advantage of the broad set of mental health resources, such as a 24/7 employee assistance program, mindfulness tools, online coaches, mental health webinars, and a number of mental health apps.

Financial Well-being and Retirement Readiness

With a generous 401(k) retirement savings program consisting of a 13% Foundation contribution and a 2% matching contribution, we support our employees as they plan and save for retirement. We also offer a financial wellness tool, student loan repayment, and tuition assistance programs.

Opportunities to Learn and Grow

We want our colleagues to succeed and encourage our team members to participate in leadership development programs, online learnings, and monthly all-team learning sessions. Additionally, we offer a reimbursement benefit for professional memberships, workshops, seminars, and conferences.

Employee Matching Gift and Volunteer Program

We encourage our team members to follow their passion! Through RockGives, the Foundation matches employee donations on a 3:1 basis and will also make a charitable donation to eligible organizations where our team members volunteer.

Time-Off & Perks

We offer colleagues a variety of ways to manage their personal and professional obligations. This includes generous vacation and personal time off, floating holidays, flexible work arrangements, back-up dependent care, commuter and parking benefits, pet insurance, legal and identity theft insurance, and more!
