Capital Campaign

Given the rapidly changing shopping center industry, it is more important than ever to develop trained and talented future leaders. Additionally, the industry has a social responsibility to encourage, recognize and publicize companies/individuals that use shopping centers to support community needs. Promoting philanthropic work brings further credit and respect to the industry, and provides vital support for those most in need.

Though we have made great strides, there is much more we can do to ensure that the industry’s future is sustainable and strong. We are embarking on a campaign to raise $5 million that will allow us to increase our impact. Programs would include:

  • Greater and more meaningful Community Support Awards
  • Expanded university relations, internships and mentorships
  • Assist more professionals at advanced educational programs
  • Provide expanded scholarship opportunities
  • Develop an international scholarship program
