The Schmidt Family Foundation Receives the 2021 “Raising Children” Award!

April 2021—The Schmidt Family Foundation receives the 2021 “Raising Children” award for ten years of igniting potential for Palm Beach and Martin Counties “Little Brothers and Little Sisters.” Because of the Schmidt Family Foundations’ commitment to education and youth development, local children and youth are graduating with a mission and an encouraging mentor for a lifetime.

The Foundation’s decade of generous donations to the organization have provided vital support to over 3,500 youth. This impact on our South Florida community is commendable.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is grateful and honored to collaborate with the Schmidt Family Foundation. We are excited to announce that on October 12, 2021, the “Big Taste of Martin County” will once again be hosted at the Stuart Jet Center. We look forward to this live and in-person event.
