Doing Good While Doing Well was one of Bill Carey’s favorite mottos and has been a core principle at W. P. Carey during our now 40-plus year history. He believed—as we do today—that our business by its very nature promotes prosperity. But he also believed that his responsibility did not end there, and, through the W. P. Carey Foundation, he supported a wide variety of educational institutions with the greater goal of improving America’s competitiveness.

The Carey Forward program allows employees to become involved in philanthropic and charitable activities, devoting their time and resources to causes near and dear to their hearts. By taking one day a year to volunteer outside the office, they bring to our community the same qualities they bring to their professional work: excellence, commitment and, perhaps most important, Doing Good While Doing Well.
