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. It was established as a tax-exempt charitable organization to assist young people in disadvantaged communities develop self esteem through athletics and education.
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 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
