As part of new cooperation between Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the IDEX Foundation, IDEX business units across the U.S. have extended volunteer opportunities. The national alliance grew from years of strong IDEX business unit connections with local clubs.

The partnership, which includes financial support and opportunities for volunteerism at local Clubs, results from the IDEX Foundation adding “Equity & Opportunity” – creating opportunities for under-served, disadvantaged people of color in our communities – as an additional charitable pillar earlier this year.

“IDEX teams regularly perform volunteer work through local charities that impact their communities, with financial support from the IDEX Foundation. This new partnership will provide tailor made opportunities to do even more through the amazing work done every day at Clubs in the communities where we live and work,”

said Derrick Goddard, president of the IDEX Foundation.

The IDEX Foundation’s decision to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of America nationally fits with the organization’s mission to help empower young people to reach their full potential. Clubs are located near every IDEX business unit in the United States.

“Thank you to the IDEX Foundation, its business units and employees for supporting Boys & Girls Clubs of America as we continue our commitment to offering youth the resources they need to reach their full potential,”

said Chad Royal-Pascoe, acting senior vice president, resource development for Boys & Girls Clubs of America.

“It is through partnerships like this that we are able to fuel programs, experience and opportunities that help us to close the equity and opportunity gaps for kids and teens.”
