Dave and Peggie Schmidt

Dave and Peggie Schmidt

Dave and Peggie Schmidt commit for the long haul. The couple recently celebrated their 40th anniversary. They have been Mosaic supporters for more than 25 years. And they've committed a gift to Mosaic's future through their estate, a decision influenced by faith.

"At church they talked about giving to organizations and how our kids really don't need all of this," Peggie said. "We have only one child and my husband and I talked about it. We decided to give a portion of our estate to Mosaic and a couple of other organizations."

It was faith that connected them to Mosaic. Peggie, who spent her career as a special education teacher, attended the blessing of one of Mosaic's first homes in the Dallas area. She wanted to learn more about the organization and, when Mosaic saw her passion for the work, Peggie was recruited to serve as a regional board member. Years later, her passion for people with disabilities has not waned and today she serves as a volunteer on the fundraising team.

"Even though I didn't have child with a disability, when you teach, you get really attached to your students. If I had a child, this would be a place where I would want my child to be," Peggie said. "Mosaic, being faith-based, provides a very meaningful life for people. It certainly is a caring community and it gives people a voice."

Mosaic Planned Giving services make estate planning relaxed and easy. The Schmidts worked with Dan Dittman, who does estate planning for Mosaic, and Beth Sabella, a Mosaic Development Officer

"They came to our house and sent us a copy of the trust so we could look it over for anything that needed to be changed," Peggie said. "We had a trust already and Dan told us what we needed to do to simplify the trust. He was very helpful."

Thanks to their planning and generosity, the Schmidt's commitment to serve others will continue long into the future. That makes Peggie happy because, whenever she visits Mosaic, she sees two students she taught years ago and knows they have a good future.

"You can see the happiness in their eyes." she said. "Mosaic does a lot of wonderful work."
