About GOT Kids

Giving Opportunities to Kids

GOT Kids, founded in 2012, is a non-profit foundation created to support students in the Lodi Unified School District.  The purpose of the foundation is to fund academic and extra curricular programs for schools and individual classrooms that would otherwise not be possible.  GOT Kids supports:

  • Music
  • Drama
  • Academic Teams
  • Anti-Bullying Efforts
  • Assemblies
  • Special Class or School Projects
  • Student Recognitions
  • Field Trips
  • Athletics

GOT Kids has sponsored anti-bullying assemblies at several middle schools, science camp, and athletic programs throughout the District.  A Request for Funds process allows educators at the school sites to request funds for their specific project.  Through fund raising events and generous donations from community members and businesses, the GOT Kids Board of Directors members are excited to send money directly to schools and classrooms.

Please consider supporting the children of Lodi Unified through a donation to GOT Kids.  If you are interested in supporting a particular area (such as music, an athletic program, Science Bowl, spelling bee, etc.), your donation will only go towards that area.
