Staff Benefits

Our multiracial and cross-class staff mobilizes young people (18-35) with wealth and class privilege in the U.S. to become transformative leaders working toward the equitable distribution of wealth, land, and power. 

At Resource Generation, we pride ourselves on offering benefits that reflect our commitment to equity and inclusivity. Our extensive range of benefits is the product of years of listening to and working with the needs and wants of our past and present staff from poor, working-class, middle-class, BIPOC, queer, and trans communities. 

We understand that in order for our movement to succeed, we need to resource it like we want to win. That is why we prioritize supporting our multiracial and cross-class staff with comprehensive benefits and a living wage. 

Our full list of benefits is publicly shared for transparency, and we hope that other nonprofits can utilize this information to enhance their own staff benefits. Our movements will need all of us, and it’s our responsibility to support our team to make a world in which all communities are powerful, healthy, and living in alignment with the planet. A world that is racially and economically just in which wealth, land, and power are shared.
