CARROLL Founder Gives $1.5M to UNICEF for Ukrainian Children; Exceeds $4M YTD Philanthropic Donations

The founder of Atlanta, GA-based CARROLL, Patrick Carroll, has surpassed the $4 million mark in personal donations to various charities since the beginning of 2022:

  • $2.1 million to C.A.R.E. for Special Children, a Brooklyn-based nonprofit dedicated to helping families of children with special needs.
  • $100,000 to the Heart Fund, an international nonprofit focused on fighting cardiovascular disease in developing countries
  • $100,000 to Jesuit High School in Tampa, his alma mater
  • $1.5 million through UNICEF to benefit the children in Ukraine
  • $200,000 to Kicks for Kids, a FL nonprofit that provides shoes to youth in need

Carroll will also team this month with other philanthropists to donate some 600 sneakers to the Boys and Girls Club of Miami.

Carroll’s spirit of philanthropy is reflected at CARROLL. This year, the firm has partnered with Little Free Library to install more than 90 library units throughout its multifamily communities across the country. The firm’s employees also volunteered more than 100 hours to 21 local organizations in the first six months of 2022.

CARROLL committed to donate $250,000 throughout the next five years to HOPE Atlanta, a local nonprofit dedicated to preventing homelessness in Atlanta.
