Creating places that enrich lives are the words the Carl M. Freeman Companies live by. Of equal note was our founder’s belief that to whom much is given, much is expected. Thus, in 1960, he established the Carl M. Freeman Foundation, which, via grants and guidance, assists nonprofit organizations throughout the tri-state area. In 2007, the Joshua M. Freeman Foundation was created as a way of using Josh’s passion for the arts and commitment to the community to further fulfill the Freeman mandate to support places where life happens, where we live, gather and make memories.

Joshua M. Freeman Foundation
The Joshua M. Freeman Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, was established in 2007 to honor Josh Freeman, the former Chair of the Carl M.
