“As a film producer with a fluctuating income, I used to feel I couldn’t give regularly to charity.

But when I started a family, I started thinking about more than myself, and more about the future.

So in drawing up my will, I carved up a good part of my estate to give back to my community with a fund in The Trust. The purpose is broad: education and social justice.

I grew up in South Carolina, and I think in many ways New York City represents the best of America. With The Trust, my wife and I will help make New York better for the next generation.” — Jonathan Shoemaker

Jonathan Shoemaker is a film producer. His wife, Diane, is a teacher at a City public school.
