Together, Let’s Build a Brighter Future

Since 1984, we’ve been proud to offer innovative solutions to the health care needs that matter most in our communities. We’re able to meet those needs thanks to the generosity of donors like you, and we accept gifts for projects within the walls of BDCH, and for health-related initiatives throughout the region.

Each year the Foundation highlights and raises funds for specific areas of need. The 2017-2018 Annual Fund Appeal goal is $375,000 and focuses on Hospice Home and Blue Zones Project. Donations to BDCH Foundation, Inc. are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

our mission

The mission of the Beaver Dam Community Hospitals Foundation Inc. is to raise and direct funds in support of BDCH’s local health care and community programs.

our history

On May 21, 1984, local leaders formed BDCH Foundation, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to promoting charitable giving for health care needs in local communities. The Foundation, through its board of directors, recognizes the need to support the health and well-being of our region and beyond.

 

 

"The BDCH Foundation makes a significant difference in the health care available inside the hospital and throughout the community through grant awards that promote wellness programs and life-saving technology. The Automated External Defibrillator Program is a great example of the Foundation's commitment to our community."

Living Better, Living Longer

BLUE ZONES PROJECT

Traveling the world, Dan Buettner discovered five longevity “Hot Spots,” communities where people lived to age 100 at rates 10 times greater than the rest of the world: Sardinia, Italy; Okinawa, Japan; Loma Linda, Calif.; Nicoya Costa Rica; and Ikaria, Greece.

Buettner studied these five “Blue Zones” closely and discovered common traits. The Blue Zones organization decided to see if they could leverage this information to help communities across the United States maximize health and wellness.

The way Dodge County residents view health and wellness began its transformation in 2017 as the Blue Zones Project kicked off in Beaver Dam, Horicon, Juneau and Mayville. The three-year wellness initiative sponsored by BDCH works with local volunteers to help communities make changes in policy and lifestyle that enable people to make the healthy choices the easy ones.
