$74,720 Raised for Classroom Grants

At our recent Fall Author Event, Mr. Alan Hall gave those in attendance a challenge: to raise at least $35,000 in the envelopes placed on each table that evening for our Classroom Grants Program. These funds would be in addition to the funds already raised through sponsors and ticket sales. If we reached that number, Alan announced that he and several other generous individuals, including John E. Lindquist, Jake and Kierstin Goodell, Suzanne Lindquist, Val Iverson, Mike and Lisa Bradshaw, and George and Mary Hall, would each give an additional $5,000 to provide a $35,000 match, doubling our proceeds. Our community stepped up in a big way, and we are pleased to announce that we exceeded our goal, raising $37,470 in the envelopes! With the $35,000 match, $72,470 will soon be on its way to classrooms all across the district!

It was truly heartwarming to see so many individuals come together to raise money for our students! Thank you!

Sharon Rich Lewis Endowment for the Arts

Sharon Lewis was a remarkable and giving individual who touched the lives of countless people. Through her service with the Ogden School Foundation, she certainly influenced for good the lives of innumerable children in the Ogden School District, providing them with opportunities, particularly in the arts, that they would have otherwise not received.

We have created an endowment in her memory called the Sharon Rich Lewis Endowment for the Arts, which will continue to support the projects Sharon held near and dear to her heart. Thus far, we have received $20,000 in pledges and donations, but we need your help to reach our goal of $100,000 to help us honor her memory. If you would like to make a donation in Sharon's memory to help us reach our goal, visit our Donation Page by clicking here.
