Corporate Giving

A significant part of our mission support are the partnerships we build with businesses and community organizations, who are instrumental to the success of our participants. In addition to funding, corporate partners offer opportunities for participants to gain valuable workplace experience and in some cases, permanent employment.

Check out our mission in motion with Marsden Holding, L.L.C., a leader in commercial janitorial, building maintenance, security, HVAC mechanical maintenance and specialty property services.

For over a decade, Marsden has provided in-kind donations in the form of facility janitorial services, as well as significant program funding, and even employment for our participants.

Marsden and Goodwill-Easter Seals Minnesota share many core values. One guiding principle of both organizations is respect for the individual. Marsden has a longstanding reputation for treating people with respect and appreciation. Partners like Marsden are extremely valuable to our participants, who gain real-life job experience and complete our training programs. Marsden's generosity of in-kind gifts and support of our participants is a beacon for how community partnerships can uplift people!
