A big believer in giving back, Carl has helped many organizations over the years, from sharing his knowledge of the visual arts with at-risk children in Artsy Fartsy Saturdays to consulting with non-profits regarding artistic outreach opportunities to painting a portrait of a child with a cranio-facial condition for Portrait of a Soul.

Carl is also a founding member of the Valley View Foundation Nature Preserve in Milford, Ohio, past consultant for the Frank Duveneck House and adviser/founder of the Greenacres Artist Guild for Louise Nippert’s Greenacres Foundation.
