About the Foundation
Kip and his wife Carolyn established the William C. Schumacher Family Foundation in 2018. With an unwavering passion for making a difference in people’s lives, Kip is committed to noble causes both locally in Louisiana and across the globe. Through his dedication, he has initiated and generously supported numerous charitable organizations focused on enhancing healthcare, crisis response, education, and overall quality of life.
As an alumnus of the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now known as the University of Louisiana at Lafayette) and LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans, Kip holds impressive academic achievements. With extensive experience as a board-certified physician who served in a hospital Emergency Department (ED) for 17 years, he eventually founded Schumacher Group—an esteemed emergency healthcare management company that has flourished over time. Today, known as SCP Health, this organization proudly attends to the needs of 8 million patients annually across 400 hospitals by delivering comprehensive clinical services.
Throughout his illustrious career journey, Kip has actively contributed to shaping healthcare policy while tirelessly advocating for both physicians and patients alike. In addition to his professional endeavors, he cherishes cherished moments spent traveling with Carolyn—his beloved partner—as well as treasuring valuable time with their seven children and seven grandchildren.
