Graef, Anhalt, Schloemer Foundation
Since 1961, when the three founders opened the doors of Graef, Anhalt, Schloemer & Associates, Inc., the firm has been providing design services with integrity, quality, employee loyalty and exceptional service to our clients as the core values.
While Graef, Anhalt Schloemer & Associates has been renamed GRAEF, the spirit of the founders lives on through the Graef, Anhalt, Schloemer Foundation.
The mission of the Graef, Anhalt, Schloemer Foundation is to support the future of Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) based careers, and to promote charitable endeavors related to engineering, planning and design.
The Graef, Anhalt, Schloemer Foundation annually awards college scholarships to Engineering majors. This is currently done at five universities. The Foundation also funds college design programs and competitions. It promotes diversity in the real estate business by its funding of scholarships to a professional development program aimed at minorities. The Foundation has also funded software for charitable firms designing and constructing infrastructure projects in underprivileged communities overseas.
