Got donations? Lodi Unified School District's new community foundation may be able to help.
Giving Opportunities to Kids — or GOT Kids, for short — was founded to bridge the financial gap between co-curricular activities and the 10 percent per-site cut made to activities outside of the regular classroom but sponsored by the school. In addition to sports, this includes clubs such as speech and debate, band and academic competitions such as Academic Pentathlon. These historically have been activities the district struggles to fund.
