The money raised through your generous donations is donated to Ogden to supplement and to further the educational mission of the school.
In recent years, the funding has been primarily used to donate upgraded school technology and furniture and materials for additional classrooms needed to accommodate Ogden’s growing population.
Friends of Ogden is a not-for-profit corporation, but we have operational expenses and expenses associated with our events. Every dollar you donate goes directly to donations to Ogden or to cover our limited expenses. None of our team is paid and we all pay full price for tickets for all of our events.
HOW FUNDING NEEDS ARE DETERMINED
In a collaborative effort, the Friends Board and the Principal work together to assess ongoing funding needs of Ogden. When a need is identified for which funding is not available within Ogden’s budget and the Principal has approved it, the Friends of Ogden Board will vote on making a donation to the school. If approved, the funds are released directly to the vendor providing the goods or services to Ogden. When considering donations, the Friends of Ogden’s priorities are to provide donations that will benefit a broad group of students for an extended period of time and to make equitable donations to both of Ogden’s campuses.
Friends of Ogden allows guests to attend our meetings for the sole purpose of presenting a funding proposal. A proposal form must be presented to the Board at least three days prior to the meeting. Friends of Ogden meetings are not open to the public, but projects that are funded will be shared with the community. Having trouble completing the online application?

NOTE: Proposal forms must be received by the final Monday of each month in order to be reviewed by Friends of Ogden the following month. Forms received after the final Monday of each month may not be reviewed for one month’s time.
