The Jeptha Homer Wade Society honors our most significant supporters, each of whom has contributed $100,000 or more in total to Beech Brook. The Wade Family played a unique and treasured role in our history over several generations, beginning with the donation of the orphanage on St. Clair Avenue in the 1870s to the land and several buildings on our present campus in the 1920s. Members of the Wade Family served more than 130 years on the Board of Directors, and their legacy lives on through ongoing gifts from family members today.
For more than 60 years, Suzanne Brookhart Harrison dedicated her time, energy and enthusiasm to Beech Brook, earning a special place in our history and in the hearts of everyone who knew her. Her unwavering commitment to children and to the work of Beech Brook inspired this giving society in her name, honoring loyal supporters who have made charitable gifts for 25 years or more.
The Children’s Hope Society honors donors whose planned gifts demonstrate their commitment to the work and future of Beech Brook. These gifts, which are placed in Beech Brook’s Endowment Fund, allow supporters to create their own legacies of hope for children and families. The interest income from the endowment supports the ongoing provision of high-quality services for children and families, innovation and program development, and research.
In 1869, Samuel Clemens was so moved by the work being done by the Cleveland Protestant Orphan Asylum that he donated the entire proceeds of his January 22nd performance at Case Hall that year. He closed his lecture with an impassioned appeal to his Cleveland audience to likewise lend their generous support.
Today Beech Brook’s Samuel Clemens Society recognized individuals, foundations and organizations that generously support our work with gifts of $1,000 or more each year. These annual gifts provide critical funds that enable Beech Brook to respond to the needs of our community’s children and families.
It takes many partners who share our vision of a future where every child and family thrives to keep our mission alive.
