Jeptha Homer WadeJeptha Homer Wade Society

The Jeptha Homer Wade Society recognizes donors who are especially committed to Beech Brook’s mission and vision. Named after one of Beech Brook’s early and most dedicated supporters, the society recognizes contributors who have donated $100,000 or more to Beech Brook.The Wade Family’s commitment to Beech Brook is truly remarkable, beginning with the donation of the orphanage on St. Clair Avenue by the first Jeptha Wade to the land and some of the building on our present campus by his grandson. Members of the Wade family served more than 130 years on the Board of Trustees and Board of Managers, and their legacy lives through the ongoing gifts from family members today.  (Bold indicates new members to the Society)

Suzanne Brookhart HarrisonFor more than 60 years, Suzanne Brookhart Harrison dedicated her time, energy and enthusiasm to Beech Brook. In the process, she earned a very special place in the history of this institution and in the hearts of everyone who knew her. Her devotion to children and to the work of Beech Brook inspired both an annual award in her name and a giving society for those who have given charitable gifts to Beech Brook for 25 years or more. (Bold indicates new members to the Society)

Children’s Hope Society


The Children’s Hope Society honors donors whose planned gifts demonstrate their commitment to the work and future of Beech Brook. These gifts, which may include a bequest, charitable trust, gift annuity, insurance policy or other planned gift, allow Beech Brook supporters to create their own legacies of hope for children and families.

All gifts to the Children’s Hope Society are placed in Beech Brook’s Endowment Fund. The interest income from Beech Brook’s Endowment supports the ongoing provision of high quality services for children and families, innovation and program development, and research.

Giving today, as well as making plans for future contributions, allows Beech Brook to continue providing quality programs and services to the most vulnerable children. Gifts to the Children’s Hope Society require thoughtful planning and great vision. If you’d like to know more about making the Children’s Hope Society a part of your philanthropic goals, please contact the Development Office
