LEAVE YOUR LEGACY
WITH
THE PULLMAN
FOUNDATION

FURTHER THE AMERICAN DREAM
BY SUPPORTING THE PULLMAN FOUNDATION

Planned Giving

George M. Pullman proved himself as a visionary philanthropist when he endowed $1.2 million to support the American Dreams of young people in the Pullman Community in 1897. Thanks to his bequest, thousands of men and women received a free vocational education at Pullman Tech and more than 14,000 individuals received Pullman Foundation Scholarships to attend the college of their choice. As you review what matters most to you in life and the type of legacy you want to leave, consider naming the George M. Pullman Educational Foundation as a beneficiary in your will, retirement plan, or life insurance policy.

THERE IS A NEED TO SEE YOUTH OFF TO A GOOD FUTURE AND TO PROPEL THE FOUNDATION’S MISSION FORWARD.
– JOHN H. MUNGER

The john munger society

The Munger Society

John H. Munger may modestly dismiss the moniker of “pioneer” when reflecting on his 35 years of service as the educational and executive director of the Pullman Foundation, but no one can argue his influence in the areas of college prep and college readiness for first-generation college students. “At the height of my career, 700 young people were receiving Pullman scholarships, and the Foundation was the single, most important source of college funding for inner-city Chicago kids. Even awards as low as $100 were deeply appreciated,” says Munger.

To recognize the great impact that Munger has had on thousands of Pullman Scholars’ lives, the Pullman Foundation has named a society in his honor for those that name the Foundation in their estate plans and notify the Foundation staff in advance.

“I want to do anything i can

to support the foundation. For me, the value of the scholarship was incalcuable.”

– THOMAS MEAGHER,
Pullman Scholar Alumnus, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 1967
