Mark Lindberg

Director, Relief, Recovery and Development

Margaret A. Cargill Foundation




One of the legacies of the late Margaret A. Cargill was creation of one of the largest foundations in the country. Lindberg’s job is to find effective ways to use part of that $6 million endowment to fund disaster-relief work worldwide. Lindberg, who has served at the Otto Bremer and Medtronic foundations, has said that Cargill’s efforts will focus on natural disasters that receive less media attention. His is a work in progress, but given the size of the endowment, worthy itself of attention.
