Our support goes to results-driven institutions with track records of demonstrable success and exceptional leadership
The majority of the W. P. Carey Foundation's giving is directed to organizations with longstanding ties to the Carey family.
Wm. Polk Carey was an entrepreneur, a pioneer in global corporate finance and philanthropist
His life and career can be defined by two core principles from which he founded both W. P. Carey in 1973 and the W. P. Carey Foundation in 1990 – Investing for the Long Run® and Doing Good While Doing Well®.
"Doing Good While Doing Well means that when we are financing properties for companies we are also helping the communities those companies serve. It is important to always ask, ‘What is the impact of what we are doing? What is good for society? What is good for the country?’" -Wm. Polk Carey
