At Fischer & Frichtel, we are truly committed to improving the quality of life throughout the metropolitan area, so we devote considerable time, effort, and funding to worthy civic and charitable endeavors. Over the years, we have donated our time and organized fundraising efforts for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Habitat for Humanity, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Boys Hope, Youth In Need, St. Joseph’s Institute for the Deaf, the Ronald McDonald House, the March of Dimes Missouri Chapter, and Folds of Honor St. Louis. In 2016, we began to support the efforts of the March of Dimes Missouri Chapter. The March of Dimes is a remarkable organization that funds scientific research to prevent premature birth, birth defects and infant loss. Each year since then, Fischer & Frichtel has been a contributing sponsor of the March for Babies, which is the nation’s oldest fundraising walk.

We pledged to donate $1,000 for every home sold last month to Folds of Honor – St. Louis. We are honored to say we are rounding up for a full donation of $20,000 to this organization! It’s a privilege to partner with Folds of Honor whose mission is to provide educational scholarships to the spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service members. Thank you for your support of this wonderful cause!
