Modesto, CA, June 25, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- A partner/joint management agreement has been formulated between the Lodi Boys & Girls Club and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Stanislaus to provide cooperative management for their existing and future clubs. The partnership is expected to increase the number of members served by both organizations while providing more efficient and cost effective management, reducing overhead and enabling more resources to be expended at the club site level. Funds raised in their respective communities will be designated for local clubs.
Representatives from both organizations, along with key members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, have been meeting since July 1, 2015 to explore a partnership that will provide expanded services to their respective communities. After a thorough analysis and detailed due diligence, Boys & Girls Clubs of Stanislaus County and Lodi Boys & Girls Club, have agreed to explore a strategic partnership.
President and Chief Professional Officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Stanislaus County, Lincoln D. Ellis states, “This partnership is very exciting for both organizations because it will allow us to more effectively accomplish our shared mission of enabling all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Working together we can accomplish more by streamlining many of our processes for more efficiency and more effectiveness.”

Each of our organizations have incredible teams working passionately to carry out a thorough and targeted plan for reaching as many young people as possible.”
Mr. Cotton continues, “Because our communities face economic and educational challenges, our youth desperately need the services we provide. A strategic partnership alleviates many obstacles with respect to growth and expansion. A partnership makes sense financially and strategically and will strengthen each of our club site’s capacity and capabilities with strong effective leadership.”
In alignment with "Great Futures 2025," Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s (BGCA’s) new strategic vision for the decade ahead, this partnership will build upon each organization’s current capacity and capabilities.
