Art, Ray, and Bill Schmidt founded the U.S. Venture/Schmidt Family Foundation, Inc. in 1985 to honor the philanthropic legacy of their parents, Albert and Margaret Schmidt. Today the Foundation’s board of directors is made up of U.S. Venture associates and shareholders from the second, third, and fourth generations of Albert and Margaret’s family. Its mission is based in the values taught by the couple to their eight children: volunteerism, financial support for charitable organizations, appreciation for their community and many blessings, and the importance of promoting a healthy community through strong families.
