Purpose and Activities

Giving primarily for health care, including hospitals and children's hospitals, funding also for the arts, and children, youth and social services, and for higher education.


Established in 1976 in NY - Founded by Thomas and Agnes Carvel. The late Thomas Carvel was the founder of the soft ice cream brand, Carvel, in 1936. In the mid 1930s he borrowed $15 from his future wife, Agnes, to sell ice cream from his truck. He later sold ice cream from a store, and later still, he franchised the Carvel ice cream. He is now considered to be the father of modern franchising.
