The Family trust

Strong families create strong communities.

The members of our Family Trust, comprised of supporters who have committed to including Metropolitan Family Services in their financial plans, ensure their family’s crucial investment today will help families throughout metropolitan Chicago and beyond reach their greatest potential for generations to come.

This year, Metropolitan Family Services Mpowered 122,970 families and individuals to learn, earn, heal and thrive. When you strengthen your own family’s financial future through the Family Trust, you’re also strengthening the future of every one of our families, and the future of the communities we serve.

Ginger (Virginia) Johnson Pillman and Stan Pillman
Family Trust Members

“Early in my career I joined MFS’ Metro Board – its young professionals’ board [now known as MLAB]. I was immediately so impressed with all of the things the agency does to strengthen families and also saw how fiscally responsible it was with its funds. When I met my husband, Stan, he also got to know MFS and was incredibly impressed. I was later asked to join the agency’s governing Board of Directors, and one of the top things I have had the honor of doing was eventually serving as Board Chair.

The agency continues to grow in so many amazing ways to proactively help many of Chicago’s most vulnerable families. One thing I really love about it is that as the city and families need change, MFS acts as a change agent to help add so many positive resources.

We encourage others to join the Family Trust as part of their estate planning. MFS has been a part of Chicago’s fabric for almost 170 years, and I feel confident it will be here for at least another 170 years! The agency takes the management of estate grants very seriously. People can be very confident that their funds will go to great use in strengthening Chicago’s vulnerable families for many years to come.

Stan and I are honored to be part of the Family Trust. We became members because it is a way to invest in MFS in an ongoing way after we are no longer here. We believe philanthropy should be part of our long-term estate plan, and there is no better place to leave our investment than in MFS.”
