Graves Garrett is pleased to announce partner Todd Graves has been chosen as the Chairman for the newly founded Stanley M. Herzog Foundation, which will support the advancement and acceleration of nondenominational Christian education through a several-hundred-million-dollar endowment.

The Herzog Foundation’s board will work with decision-makers and key opinion leaders in Christian education to create models of excellence. Initial efforts will focus within the state of Missouri, with quick expansion to regions throughout the country.
