W. P. Carey Foundation
The W. P. Carey Foundation is a private U.S. foundation, incorporated in 1990 by William Polk Carey. It has a twenty-three year tradition of focused philanthropy.
Inspired by the Carey family’s legacy of educational leadership and philanthropy, The W. P. Carey Foundation’s primary mission is to support educational institutions with the larger goal of improving America’s competitiveness in the world. The main focus of our support to schools, universities, lecture series, chairs and other programs is on the study of business and economics, as well as on admissions procedures, and college and career guidance. It is to the success of W. P. Carey Inc. that the W. P. Carey Foundation attributes its longevity and enduring generosity.
