John H. Graham Fund
John H. Graham IV, FASAE, CAE Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fund
ASAE engaged a group of its Past Chairs and Fellows to identify how to honor the legacy of John H. Graham IV, FASAE, CAE. ASAE’s volunteer leaders cited John’s commitment to diversity and inclusion initiatives throughout his career. It was decided that the John H. Graham IV, FASAE, CAE Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fund would be established through the ASAE Research Foundation.
This fund will remain partially restricted to diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts, which will allow resources from the fund to be allocated to any DEI program as needed, as guided by volunteers and determined by staff.
In celebration of the life and legacy of John H. Graham IV, FASAE, CAE, ASAE’s Board of Directors has approved a cash distribution of $100,000 to commemorate John and ignite fundraising for the Fund. The Board has also provided provision for additional support of the Fund by promising to match gifts at a 1:1 ratio. ASAE members, associations, industry partners, and friends who choose to honor John in this way can expect 100% of these funds to support the various diversity, equity, and inclusion programs of ASAE.
