ABOUT PAUL SIMON
During his distinguished career spanning six decades, musician and songwriter Paul Simon has produced timeless masterpieces, such as Bridge Over Troubled Water, Sounds of Silence, and Graceland. He has received 16 Grammy Awards, including a Lifetime Achievement Award for his work as half of the duo Simon & Garfunkel, and has been twice inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Paul Simon’s varied philanthropic work includes the co-founding of the Children’s Health Fund (CHF), which, over a period of 30 years, has donated and staffed 53 mobile medical units that bring health care to low-income children and their families in urban and rural locations around the United States. Since its inception in 1987, CHF has provided five million doctor/patient visits.
In June 2017, net proceeds from Simon’s month-long U.S. concert tour were donated to benefit the Half-Earth Project, an initiative of the E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation, which is committed to stopping the species extinction crisis by conserving half the planet’s lands and oceans. During Paul Simon’s Homeward Bound – The Farewell Tour in 2018, he left a financial gift in each city he visited on tour, as a thank you to those cities, and benefitting local youth and environmental organizations. Having retired from touring, Simon continues his commitment to occasionally perform and to donate those earnings to philanthropic organizations dedicated to environmental welfare and to preserving species biodiversity.
