Mall of America® has an amazing time working with the Twin Cities non-profit community. We couldn't do this without the support from you — our tenants, employees and guests.
Mall of America actively gives back to the community, with the support of our tenants, employees and guests. We contribute an average of $25,000 every day in cash, products and in-kind support to charities and non-profits. Contributions to our community partners total more than $12 million annually, with a goal to grow this total every year. On behalf of the entire Mall of America family, we want to thank our community partners for the incredible work they do.
Learn more about our community relations in our Community Partnership Booklet, available for download here.

For its 15th anniversary celebration, CaringBridge wanted a real-world gathering place—and there was no place better than Mall of America®. The Mall rotunda set the stage for the star of the party, a 30 X 40-foot greeting card, signed by a world-record-breaking 2,216 people.
The Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valley wanted to throw a big party for the Girl Scout Centennial. But when they partnered with Mall of America for the event, they had no idea just how big it would be: 150,000 PEOPLE
