While Minnkota’s first priority is delivering safe, reliable, affordable and environmentally-responsible electricity to those we serve, we also feel strongly about supporting and contributing to the development of our communities. In fact, "concern for community" is one of the seven core principles that guides our actions all year long.

Employee Jeans Day

Participating Minnkota employees pay $1 each Friday and during other designated days throughout the year for the privilege of wearing jeans to work. When the Jeans Day fund reaches a designated level, a committee of Minnkota employees determines which charity or nonprofit should receive a donation. Since 2011, about $25,000 has been to donated to organizations such as Red River Valley Habitat for Humanity, Cheerful Givers, Sporting Chance, Northlands Rescue Mission, Altru Camp Good Mourning, Prairie Harvest Mental Health and the American Red Cross.



Minnkota supports its employees being active in their communities and volunteering their time to worthwhile community projects. Employees have volunteered with many nonprofit organizations, including Habitat For Humanity, Optimist Club, Shriners, volunteer fire and ambulance groups and many more.

NRECA International Foundation

Minnkota has joined with America's Electric Cooperatives to volunteer time and donate equipment to help build electric systems in rural areas in developing nations. This effort has helped bring this life-changing technology to more than 110 million people. Electricity opens up a whole world of new possibilities: better health care, better education and safer streets. It also helps communities become self-sufficient. Most recently, Minnkota sent an employee to Guatemala and donated a high-reach bucket truck to help improve their electric system. To  learn more, visit
