Boys & Girls Clubs of America Appoints Two New Executive Vice Presidents
ATLANTA, Dec. 29 — Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), one of the nation's largest and fastest-growing youth development organizations, has created two new Executive Vice President positions.
BGCA's Senior Vice President of Resource Development, Cynthia (Cyndi) Court, has been named Executive Vice President, Resource Development and Marketing. Diversified Nonprofit Services (DNS) President Kirk Dominick, a former BGCA staffer, has rejoined the organization as Executive Vice President, Club Services. Funding for these two new positions comes from the B.C. McCabe Foundation. Both Court and Dominick will report directly to BGCA President and CEO Roxanne Spillett.
Court and Dominick have more than 40 years of experience in the nonprofit arena. "Under Cyndi and Kirk's leadership, we will continue to position Boys & Girls Clubs of America as a true advocate for our nation's young people by illustrating the positive impact we are making in their lives every day," said Spillett.
Most recently, Court served as BGCA's Senior Vice President, Resource Development and was chiefly responsible for BGCA's Centennial Campaign (2005-2007) that raised some $228 million. Under her leadership, the development team increased overall giving, including corporate philanthropy; enhanced corporate relations and cause marketing; significantly increased the engagement of national trustees, and strengthened resource development operations. Court's team also executed a highly successful planned giving strategy, resulting in nearly $80 million in expectations for local Boys & Girls Clubs, and launched a national gift annuity fund as a service to Clubs.
With the added responsibility of overseeing BGCA's marketing efforts, Court will work closely with the organization's Senior Vice President of Marketing & Communications, Evan McElroy, to create strategic messaging across all channels to illustrate the organization's effectiveness and support fundraising nationally and locally.
Before joining BGCA in 2002 as Vice President, Planned and Major Gifts, Court held executive positions at the Arthritis Foundation and Salvation Army where she consistently advanced the organizations' fundraising capacity. Court holds a B.A. in English and History and B. Ed., Middle/High School through New York University in Toronto, Canada. She is married with three children.
