Dr. William F. Schmidt matching gift challenge for the Center for Developmental Services (CDS)

January 10, 2022

The Center for Developmental Services announced a matching gift challenge to kick off 2022. Dr. Bill Schmidt, founder and Emeritus Board member and his wife, Jean, have pledged to match up to $25,000.00 in gifts and pledges to CDS.

In the past 22 years, thousands of families in the Upstate have benefitted from the services that CDS and its partners provide to children with developmental delays and disabilities. Dr. Schmidt’s vision almost 30 years ago was to create an organization that addresses the multiple needs of children with developmental challenges in one location to produce the best outcome for their children. His vision is now impacting multiple generations.

“I look at my role in the creation of CDS as one of my greatest professional accomplishments,” said Dr. Bill Schmidt, retired Medical Director of Prisma Health Children’s Hospital.

CDS invites the community to join Dr. Schmidt and his wife, Jean, to meet this challenge and show their love for CDS and children in our community by making a gift or pledge by February 14, 2022.
