YMCA of Dodge County

Project Type:
Community Recreation
Beaver Dam, Wisconsin

With funds raised through a capital campaign, plus individual and corporate donations, the YMCA of Dodge County started a new chapter in its already rich history, which goes back to an 1893 student organization at Wayland Academy.

The YMCA offers a broad range of programs, but the heart and soul of its outreach is serving the needs of youth and families. As history foretells, the YMCA has been an active force in the Beaver Dam area, providing children with meaningful experiences and positive values for over 112 years.

Through several assessments of community needs, plus strategic planning steps, the YMCA of Dodge County determined that a new YMCA could better serve the community in the following areas: expanded swimming; improved physical fitness opportunities for adults, children and families; more childcare and pre-school enrichment programs; and consolidated outdoor playing fields.

WTI became involved with this project in the very early stages. Our hometown pride shined even brighter when a donation worth $1.7 million was made to the Beaver Dam YMCA by the Neuman family and their businesses. The Neuman families, WTI and Neuman Pools, Inc., announced a contribution that provided for the complete design and construction services for the two pools located at the new YMCA of Dodge County.
