M. Patricia Carroll and her husband, John Rogers Carroll, both Philadelphia lawyers, devoted their lives to serving their clients and to helping lawyers struggling with alcoholism and addiction. Over many years, they observed first-hand the financial struggles that impaired lawyers commonly faced in obtaining treatment. The M. Patricia Carroll Fund was established in 2002, after Pat’s death, to address the need for financial assistance for troubled lawyers.
The M. Patricia Carroll Fund is a Pennsylvania Not-for-Profit Corporation which is qualified with the Internal Revenue Service as a 501 (c)(3) charitable corporation. All contributions to the Fund are fully tax deductible.
The Fund is managed entirely by its Board of Directors, on a Pro Bono basis. We have no employees and no overhead. The contributions we receive go to those in need.
