The Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation’s mission is to help people and places move out of poverty and achieve greater social and economic justice. We work in 11 Southern states, supporting organizations and networks making progress along three interconnected pathways of change: economic opportunity, supportive policies and institutions, and democracy and civic engagement. The Foundation aims to center racial equity and power building in all our work, from grantmaking to investments, communications and more.
The Foundation works to foster a supportive environment where all staff can thrive. Our team pays careful attention to organizational culture, devoting time for reflection and relationship building. The office closes for two weeks each year for our hardworking team to recharge without using vacation days. We offer generous benefits, including retirement contributions, health and dental coverage, and we allow staff to work from anywhere in our 11-state Southeastern United States footprint.
