Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies

Eden Prairie, Minnesota

Nestled in a small wooded site, Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies (MAC) provides support to programs benefiting society, the arts and the environment. Conceptualized and designed by Gensler, MAC’s 42,000-square-foot, LEED® Gold-certified building expresses Margaret’s many passions, from her Swedish heritage to her love of Native American folk art and commitment to environmental stewardship. Infused with a warm, residential feel and inspired by Margaret’s personal furnishings, photographs and artwork, the space reflects Margaret’s passion for art, culture, and environmental sustainability, connecting staff and visitors to her life and work. A family-style kitchen, outdoor terrace, and dedicated library and lounge areas encourage collaboration and social gatherings for the foundation’s employees, members and community leaders.
