Carl F. Mattone’s Philanthropy

He is an ardent believer in giving back to the world and has contributed to a wide variety of causes. For many years, Carl served on the Board of Directors of the Queens County Builders Association. An alumnus of and and Committee chair of planned facilities for Holy Cross High School, he has also served on the school’s Board of Directors and received the “President’s Leadership Society Award.” He proudly sponsors the Holy Cross’s Capital Plan and Irene Mattone Scholarship, which he also founded.
