Looking forward and paying it forward

15 years ago, William Polk Carey, a visionary real estate investor and generous philanthropist, announced a $50 million gift to Arizona State University's College of Business. Through his generous investment, we've been able to leverage our strengths and accomplish extraordinary things, becoming one of the world's top business schools.

One of Bill Carey’s life mottos was Doing Good While Doing Well. This month, we’re embracing that philosophy by holding our first ever W. P. Carey Kindness Challenge. On Feb. 19, we’re inviting all staff, faculty, and students to make a difference by pledging to do at least one random act of kindness during the day.

We’ve all heard inspiring stories where a complete stranger does something to help someone else out. Often times we only hear about the grand gestures, but it’s usually the small of acts of kindness that can really impact someone’s day. Anyone can find a kind act to do, or report kind acts they experienced by using the hashtag #wpckindnesschallenge on social media. Let’s show the world why W. P. Carey is a place where business is personal.

Sustainability in the supply chain
