Discover The Doing Good Model

The Doing Good Model is a value-based framework for creating sustainable positive impact worldwide. It’s a practical, day-to-day tool that empowers individuals, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and communities to adopt doing-good values, ultimately benefiting society as a whole.

At the heart of the model are 3 guiding principles:

The Ripples of Impact: Individual - Organization - Society:

The Doing Good Model embraces the ripple effect. When individuals connect with their values through a doing-good mindset, this positivity extends to their immediate surroundings, influences their organization, and ultimately impacts society as a whole.


Dimensions of implementation: Being - Believing – Doing:

The model identifies three dimensions of doing good:

  • Believing: Perceptions and attitudes

  • Doing: Actions and behaviors

  • Being: Feelings, emotions, presence, and energy

These dimensions are interconnected, dynamically influencing each other and creating a flexible, evolving process.

13 DGM elements:

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 applied over the years in business and philanthropy, it was launched as a complete model in 2010 after it was solidified in a joint process by all of the Chairmen and CEOs at the Arison Group, together with a team of academics hailing from some of the world’s leading universities, including Harvard, Thunderbird, Babson, and George Mason.

Since 2011, the Doing Good Model has been making a significant impact across various sectors. It has been implemented in a wide range of businesses and organizations at the Arison Group, spanning finance, infrastructure, industry, real estate, energy, water, and social enterprises. The model's reach extends beyond the Arison Group, with the development of tools and methodologies that enable it to serve outside its scope, expanding its circles of influence.  

In 2017, The Doing Good Model Company was founded by David Arison with the vision of creating a values-based world. In 2024, the Company was closed, and the Doing Good Model became part of the Ted Arison Family Foundation.
