What is it like to work for MPP?

Saying we’re fast-paced would be putting it lightly. We’re passionate about being productive and effective. Doing what we do, and doing it the way we do it, is not easy, so we tend to be very selective about the people we hire. Our staff is composed of smart, driven, detail-oriented, thoughtful people. Being willing to work hard is a requirement.

Ultimately, we’re all about performance and getting things done. The late philanthropist Peter Lewis (chairman of Progressive Corp.) called MPP “among the best-managed of philanthropic organizations I support.” Please check out some of our accomplishments here.
