Ogden Circle of Giving

The Ogden Circle of Giving leverages small, individual donations into a powerful giving tool, investing in programs that promote positive change through creativity, innovation, education or enhanced well-being.

Join the Ogden Circle of Giving 

In 2019, a group of friends came together to pay it forward to nurture others, and the Ogden Circle of Giving was established. In order to engage their children in philanthropy as well, the group established the Ogden Youth Circle of Giving for youth up through age 24. Based in the Ogden, Utah region, the Ogden Circle of Giving is a forum for women to pool funding and grant to organizations that are making an impact in their community. 

Our Goals

The Ogden Circle of Giving’s vision is an ever-expanding circle that supports others to grow in ways that may not have otherwise been possible. We work to create opportunities for women of all walks of life to share ideas and open-minded discussion while having a significant impact on our community through annual grants.

Be Part of the Impact!

We seek to be as diverse in our membership as the women of our state. We make it easy and fun to have an impact. As a member you not only enjoy Ogden Circle of Giving meetings and events, you also play an important role in our grantmaking. Grantees are awarded democratically, nominated by and voted for by members.

  • Not sure you're ready to join? Everyone is welcome to our meetings. You do not need to be a member — just come learn more about our work and the needs of women and girls in your community!
  • Ready to be a member?
    • Annual membership is $250 for women age 25+, $125 for women age 18 to 24, and $50 for girls under age 18. 
    • Pay in installments: Call Shaelyn at 801-559-3005 x5 to pay your membership fee in more manageable monthly donations (donations must total the required amount in the current calendar year for membership).
    • The fundraising cycle is always completed and payments should be made by Dec. 31st prior to official membership in the upcoming year. This enables the Ogden Circle of Giving to have a substantial reserve to award grants and funds in the upcoming year.
