Our story

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.  


In 2017, The Doing Good Model Company was established by David Arison with the vision of making a values-based world. 


In 2024, the Doing Good Model became part of the Ted Arison Family Foundation, further aligning its mission with its commitment to social impact and positive change.


The Doing Good Model

The Doing Good Model is a sustainable value-based model for positive creation worldwide. It is a practical day-to-day tool for integrating values at the core of individuals, businesses, nonprofit organizations, communities, and for the benefit of society at large.

At the heart of the model are 3 guiding principles:

The Ripples of Impact: Individual - Organization - Society:
The Doing Good Model believes
in the ripple effect. When the individual is connected to his/her own values with a doing good mindset, it is then reflected on their immediate surroundings and outwards, influencing their organization, and impacting the society as a whole.


Dimensions of implementation: Being - Believing – Doing:
The model distinguishes between three ways in which doing good can be present in our lives: • Believing - perceptions and attitudes • Doing - actions and behaviors • Being - feelings, emotions, presence, and energy There are various interactions between the three dimensions - they affect each other and are influenced by one another, so it is a dynamic and flexible process.

13 DGM elements:
These refer to the univers
al doing good foundations that we strive for, making the Doing Good Model a holistic value-based approach and language.

Our Approach:

Doing Good is Good Business

We bring together managers and organizations in a shared journey toward mutual growth and a value-led future.


Our approach is based on the Holistic and unique Doing Good Model that emphasizes integrating “Doing Good” mindset directly into business routines leading to peak potential and collective prosperity.


Our Method :

Ripples of Impact

By fostering a "Doing Good" mindset and embracing our personal values, we create a ripple effect that starts from within ourselves and extends outward to positively impact organizations and society at large.


Our Process:


BBD (Believing- Being- Doing)

We provide managers with practical tools and actionable strategies for growth and development through an introspecting process focusing on three key dimensions: Believing (identifying my personal beliefs), Being (exploring my state of being), and Doing (determining my actions).


We aim to create alignment among these dimensions in order to facilitate personal and professional development.
