Beane Housing Fund

Earl and Millie Beane Housing Fund

Beane Family

The Earl and Millie Beane Housing fund was established in 2006 upon the retirement of former Director of Admissions Rev. Earl Beane (CAS ’63, STH ’67, ‘68). Earl and his wife Millie (CFA ’64, ‘84, SED ’95) are beloved by everyone in the School of Theology community. Millie’s faithful leadership as the Director of the Seminary Singers left students singing even after they left the School, and Earl’s commitment to prospective students was the main reason that many people chose STH for seminary. The Beane Housing Fund is a tribute to Earl and Millie’s dedication to the School and their far-reaching concern for its students, right down to the issue of steep Boston housing prices. With financial support from STH alums and friends, the Beane Housing Fund will be able to reduce the cost of housing for needy seminary students through annual scholarships and stipends. In 2008, the Beane fund provided 15 housing stipends to international students living at the Walker Center, a non-profit organization that provides long-term and short-term housing to members of faith-based groups.
