ABOUT THE OGDEN FOUNDATION
The Ogden Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Las Vegas, founded by Jonathan & Kema Ogden. Jonathan and Kema work hands on with families and children, combining their efforts with other organizations such as St. Jude’s Ranch, Boys Town, Safe Nest, Hope Link and Your Choice Behavioral.

The Ogden Foundation provides programs which include literacy and comprehension, health and nutrition awareness, life and social skills, anti-bullying and enrichment activities. The proceeds from The Ogden Bowl will support CAAMP Ogden, CAAMP Kids Care Club, and F.I.T. For A Fighting Chance programs. The Ogden Foundation encourages students to become active participants in society, learn civic responsibility, and develop meaningful leadership and workplace skills, while understanding the importance of health and fitness.
In order to provide increased level of care, The Ogden Foundation has partnered with Community Outreach Medical Center and created a fully integrated health program. This allows us to incorporate a variety of health services within our programs. We continue to search for new paths to empower others. Through our partnership with Community Outreach Medical Center, The Ogden Foundation is now able to provide the following services: Primary medical care, pediatric immunizations, family planning, prenatal care, STD clinical services, HIV/AIDS primary care and Ryan White eligibility/case management. We will also be able to start providing workshops and dental in the near future.
