Save the Date: Saturday, May 11th

Schroeder is a non-profit youth serving organization with the goal of promoting excellence, preparing youth for college and ultimately prepare them for success in life.  We know that maintaining a strong financial base is essential to fulfilling our mission and helping to deliver life changing experiences and lessons to the youth and families we serve.

In 2008, the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee sold the Walter Schroeder Aquatic Center to the non-profit group with the hope that the then newly formed non-profit could successfully renovate and continue to operate the facility into the foreseeable future.  This past August, we celebrated the 10 year anniversary of this purchase. Although there have been many challenges and hardships along the way, we been fortunate to receive great support from many Schroeder families throughout the years.

This spring we will run our third annual “Build the Future” fundraising event, and our goal is to ensure the next 10 years are even more successful than the previous 10.  This will be an athlete driven fundraiser; our athletes are the number one priority of our organization, so we are asking for their help to “Build the Future” of Schroeder.  Participation will be optional; it is encouraged but not mandatory. This will be our main fundraising event for the year.

The fundraising drive will officially begin in at the start of the long course season, but we are asking you to ‘save the date’ for our Pancake Breakfast event on Saturday, May 11th.  This has been a fun and well attended event in previous years, and we hope to see everyone there this year as well.  We will have more information forthcoming at the end of the short course season, so please keep an eye out for additional information.
