Model honored his mother by funding and naming the Faith Rockefeller Model Center for the Arts at Elon University in 1994; however on December 5, 2002, Elon announced that "[t]hrough a complex series of family circumstances the gift simply could not be realized," [1] and the center is now known simply as the Center for the Arts.

He is married and has three children. He was the father of the late Bobby Model, who was an internationally known photographer for National Geographic.
