    The Odgen Foundation

    Founders, Jonathan and Kema Odgen

    The Ogden Foundation in Las Vegas, was founded by Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee Jonathan Ogden and his wife Kema, as an extension of The Jonathan Ogden Foundation which was established in 1996 in Baltimore. It was established as a tax-exempt charitable organization to assist young people in disadvantaged communities develop self esteem through athletics and education.

    On December 11, 1996 the Foundation first honored 150 High School football players from 15 Baltimore High Schools for outstanding academic achievement. The students received official Baltimore Ravens coats, field passes to the Ravens’ game and halftime recognition.

    Since its inception, the positive impact has been remarkable with grades, SAT/ACT scores, graduation and college acceptance rates rising each year. We assist our students with SAT/ACT test preparation, college selection and preparing and submitting college applications.

    Jonathan and Kema have lived in the Las Vegas area for a combination of 45 years where they both saw a need to get more involved in the communities of Las Vegas. Together, they decided to create The Ogden Foundation to help the children in the area.

    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 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 is a certified 501 (C) (3) non-profit organization
