20th Anniversary Celebration

Thank you for helping us to exceed our financial goal of $500,000!

Healing Hearts Now & Always

The campaign allowed donors to leave a true legacy, by ensuring that grieving children in our community have access to life changing support, establishing Brooke's Place as the community leader in childhood grief and most importantly, investing in the future of our community. We could not be more grateful to each and every person who contributed to our 20th Anniversary campaign!

The Need

With an estimated 73,000 children expected to experience the death of a loved one in Central Indiana before the age of 20, there will always be an ongoing need in our community for the programs provided at Brooke’s Place. Unresolved grief is a continued issue within our community and nation. The need for us to expand access to our programs was greater than ever. 

The Future

With the success of this campaign, we have begun to ensure the ongoing sustainability of Brooke's Place with the ability to grow and expand our programs so that, one day, EVERY grieving child in our community can have access to grief support services.
