Who are we?
Stockton BGC History & Status - The original Boys & Girls Club operated from 1964 through 2015 and efforts to re-establish a new club began in 2015.
Club Merger - The target opening date of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Stockton is scheduled for August, 2018. Effective June, 2018 the club will become part of a regional organization of clubs that include clubs in the communities of Lodi, Merced County, and Stanislaus County, a merger supported by the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. The merger will enable the member clubs to operate with less administrative overhead, more operational efficiencies, and increased economies of scale.
The Plan - In the beginning, it is our plan to open a facility in an area of high-need (St. Marks Church) with access to an Art Room, Computer Lab, Learning Center, Nutrition Classroom, Games Room, Counseling Room and Gymnasium accommodating the needs of today’s youth. Our long-term plan (3-5 years) is to acquire or build a state of the arts 20,000 square foot Boys & Girls Club facility in the Stockton community.
Fundraising Goal - For the first year our goal is to raise $356,101. Our second year goal is $404,419 and another $416,261 the third and final year, for a total of $1.2 million dollars.
