To create a values-based world

We are doing this by systemically integrating the Doing Good Model as a day-to-day tool, combining universal human values at the core
of individuals, businesses, nonprofit organizations and communities, for the benefit of all of society.


The Doing Good Model is the visionary brainchild of businesswoman and philanthropist Shari Arison, who started creating it in 1997 by defining values-based visions for diverse organizations.
While parts of the model have been implemented over the years in business and philanthropy, it was launched as a complete model in 2010 after it was solidified in a joint process with all of the Chairmen and CEOs at the Arison Group, together with an academic team from some of the world’s leading universities, including Harvard, Thunderbird, Babson, and George Mason.
Since 2011, parts of the model have been implemented in a wide range of businesses and organizations at the Arison Group, operating in the fields of finance, infrastructure, industry, real estate, energy, water, and in social enterprises focused on philanthropy, volunteering, spirituality, education, and arts. Additionally, tools and methodologies have been developed that enable the model to go beyond – serve outside the scope of the Arison Group, to expand the circles of impact. The Doing Good Model proves that organizations driven by meaning, who give their employees a sense of value and promote environmental protection, are business-thriving organizationsIn 2017, The Doing Good Model Company was established with the vision of making a values based world, led by David Arison.


The Doing Good Model aims to increase the global 'Doing Good' impact. It, therefore, inherently works in alignment with the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Being, Believe, Doing

The connection of the individual, the organization, or community to the values of doing good can be expressed in the dimensions of beliefs, actions, or experiences. The implementation of the value or values can be carried out during a natural evolution process or by a conscious choice.

Every entity in the circles of influence can feel some kind of connection to the value. Some will turn directly to actions (doing), others may open their beliefs to the value (believing) or will experience the value (being). The Doing Good Model is dynamic; there are reciprocal relations and overlaps between the values and the conceptions, and sometimes even "contradictions" or conflicts.

individual, organization, society

The changes start with the individual, who influences the organization, which influences the community and the environment.

A person of values, who believes, experiences, and acts according to their values, will be a better manager. One that is more effective, communicates better, more productive, and who will positively influence their environment. Managers like this will lead the organization to achieve their vision, goals, and values concerning all the stakeholders, and will positively affect the community and the environment.
