The Ogden Foundation welcomes you to their local Las Vegas non-profit organization which leads a passionate and unified effort to defend and appreciate our community by providing opportunities for disadvantaged youth. Our mantra of “Leveling the Playing Field” is a spirited invitation to the residents and businesses of the greater Las Vegas area to form an impact and to make change starting with where they live and work.
The Ogden foundation, founded by Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee Jonathan Ogden, is an extension of The Jonathan Ogden Foundation which was established in 1996. Both foundations are dedicated to supporting their communities by building programs through strategic partnerships. Since local government cannot meet all social and recreational needs of our community, the Ogden Foundation and The Jonathan Ogden Foundation respond to this void by establishing initiatives and adopting projects that support families, unite communities, and promote healthy lifestyles.
Funding is obtained through individual donations, corporate sponsorships, matching fund campaigns, and partnerships with other agencies. Our record of success has resulted in on-going partnerships with community members, businesses, and other non-profit organizations.
The Ogden Foundation seeks to provide activities that unite the greater Las Vegas community and provide a positive, safe, and healthy outlet for at-risk and low income youth. We aim to ultimately provide after school programs throughout the community and a state of the art facility where youth can participate in year round programs including academic, athletic, nutritional/wellness, and personal empowerment.
The Mission of The Ogden Foundation is to build self-confidence, self-esteem, and healthy lifestyles choices for at-risk and low income youth through our academic, mentoring, athletics, and empowerment programs.
