Simon Sustainability Report 2021


COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT In 2021, we had over 2,100 programs or activations in place to support the communities. Local activities were organized that included community educator appreciation, community or school art installations, community carnivals, health fairs, retailer job fairs, and celebrating holidays with our customers. We also organized 176 fundraising and not-for-profit awareness events and organized 33 disaster relief events for our communities. The total funds raised in 2021 were $3,168,000. We also organized or supported blood drives, COVID testing, food drives, farmer’s markets, and Girl Scouts cookie sales, totaling 485 events in 2021, which garnered revenues of $5,235,763. Each year, Simon sponsors the National Black MBA Association ® (NBMBAA). The mission of the NBMBAA is to lead in the creation of educational, wealth building, and growth opportunities for those historically underrepresented throughout their careers as students, entrepreneurs, and professionals. PROMOTING VOLUNTEERISM AT SIMON Simon supports activities that enhance, benefit, and serve the communities in which we live and work. This aligns with one of our core values, responsible citizenship. The Simon Employee Association (SEA) is an internal resource that promotes volunteer opportunities for employees. Through SEA, Simon corporate and field employees volunteer and participate in a variety of local and national philanthropic programs and fundraising events. These include supporting local food banks, homeless shelters, and blood banks. In 2021, Simon employees supported fundraising events with over 19,000 hours of their time. APARTNERFORTHECOMMUNITY
