Fueled by a passion for social entrepreneurship, Caroline Pinal co-founded Giveback Homes to empower the real estate industry to turn business into an opportunity for social good. Pinal and team deliver innovation and impact to their network of like-minded real estate agents, brokerages, technology, and service providers. In concert with these companies, Giveback Homes has helped deliver over 200 homes to families in need during the past five years. Pinal worked directly with Concierge Auctions to establish Key for Key, an award-winning social good program that builds a home in Central America every time a property sold at auction.
Prior to Giveback Homes, Pinal worked at TOMS, the business that pioneered the one-for-one model by giving shoes to children in need. During her time at TOMS, she worked alongside Blake Andrews. After a giving trip in Central America, Blake shared his goals to bring a sustainable giving model to the world of real estate. From this idea, the concept of Giveback Homes was born. Pinal has traveled the globe, leading building trips and conducting impact investigations in areas of greatest need.
Born and raised in the Mojave Desert, Pinal studied Journalism at Cal State Long Beach, worked at Fox News and The Walt Disney Company. The path was paved early on for Pinal as she always felt the desire to apply her experiences in storytelling and creativity towards something bigger. Her mission is to guide companies and individuals toward creating more intentional and socially responsible businesses.
