Annual Program Recognizes the Best Employers in the Nonprofit Industry

Cinnaire, a non-profit Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) that provides creative loans, investments and development services to support community development, was recently recognized as a 2018 Best Nonprofit to Work For by the Nonprofit Times, the leading business publication for Nonprofit Management. This is the fourth time Cinnaire has been selected for this prestigious list, with an overall ranking as 27 of the top 50 National Nonprofit organizations selected. 

The annual report is compiled with the help of Best Companies Group. The firm conducts a thorough organizational assessment. The multi-part process is designed to gather detailed data about each participating nonprofit. Cinnaire team members completed a questionnaire and a confidential survey. Board members, investors and our development partners were also contacted to provide input. 

“Our team is driven by our unwavering belief that all people deserve the opportunities provided by living in healthy communities, “said Mark McDaniel, Cinnaire president & CEO. “Being recognized as a Best Nonprofit for the fourth time is a testament to the commitment and passion of the Cinnaire team. We are honored to once again be named to this prestigious list and look forward to continuing to work together with our partners to advance communities.” 

Cinnaire provides all full-time employees with an unlimited paid time off policy, weekly organic fresh fruit deliveries, an employee wellness program, on-site fitness center at company headquarters, company paid cell and wireless services, onsite dry-cleaning pickup and delivery and a comprehensive benefits package. An open-door policy and regularly scheduled lunches with the company CEO promote transparency and establishes open communication. The Cinnaire Staff Engagement Committee provides all staff with an open forum for generating and discussing ideas, initiatives and insights that improve professional lives and company culture, and for sharing takeaways and recommendations with the management and executive teams. In 2017, employees launched Cinnaire Cares, a companywide staff funded and driven charitable program that provides every team member an opportunity to make an impact by donating to staff nominated charities.
