Children's Hope Society

The Children’s Hope Society honors individuals, living and deceased, who have included Akron Children's Hospital in their will, trust or with another type of planned gift.

Col. George Tod Perkins laid the foundation for the Children’s Hope Society in 1890 when he gifted his house to create Akron Children's Hospital. He and all Children’s Hope Society members are valued by the children and families they help – yesterday, today, tomorrow and forever – with their philanthropy.

If you have listed Akron Children's Hospital in your estate plan, please let us know. We want to thank you, make sure we understand your wishes, and welcome you into the Children’s Hope Society.

To learn more about the Children’s Hope Society and how you can become a member, please contact Maureen Gaffney Katanic at 330-543-8343 or mkatanic@akronchildrens.org.
