The Beech Companies
The Beech Companies gives the following descriptive information:
The original mission of Beech was that of a grant making foundation to support community services. Today, we continue to expand our original mission with the Alston-Beech Foundation, Beech Community Services, and the Beech Business Bank. Just like the Beech tree our name is derived from, our goal is to grow strong and vibrant communities that stand the test of time.
