Taking care of our community

Community first

For us, giving back is core to our culture. We’re guided by our unwavering commitment to support the members of our community and strive to have a positive impact where we live and work.

The power of together

Never underestimate the power of community. By supporting one another, we keep our community thriving. The Mall in Columbia, together with its tenants, contractors, and vendors, employ nearly 4,100 people from our community. The center also provides support to our schools, local municipalities, county, and state through combined payroll, sales, utility and real estate tax contributions annually of nearly $53.5M.
