Chief Executive Officer

Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh

Location: Oshkosh, WI

Industry: Nonprofit

Tracy Ogden has always been passionate about working for kids and has been in a development and marketing role for more than 20 years. During her 14 years with the Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh she has held various leadership positions before being appointed the first female CEO in 2021.

The Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh is a non-profit for youth development services and family outreach support. The organization offers quality programs for 6-18 year-olds taught by caring professional staff that have proven successful in thousands of clubs nationwide, addressing today’s most pressing youth issues and assisting in teaching young people the skills they need to succeed in life.

“Tracy’s passion for the Boys & Girls Club’s mission and entrepreneurial spirit have made a significant impact on the club throughout her time here and can be seen through her many accomplishments that led the organization to where it is today,” said her staff.

Under her leadership, the club has increased marketing and donor reach, grown club membership, fundraising events and grants and expanded the club’s summer camp. The club’s programming sites have increased from 10 to 15 to better reach and serve children and families in Oshkosh. “Tracy’s expertise in donor development has helped the club tremendously,” said her staff.

In fact, Ogden has been instrumental in doubling the club’s budget by raising $10s of millions of dollars. As CEO, she has been an integral piece in moving the club into an expansion and adding a community center where other community organizations can work together to better help families and has raised $16 million of the $18 million goal to expand the project to date. This expansion will result in doubling the footprint of the club to over 100,000 square feet to increase the number of children served each day by 150.

With Ogden at the helm, the Boys & Girls Club of Oshkosh has received the Tom Burt Pacesetter Award and the Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce’s Alberta S. Kimball Community Service Award.

To reignite her passion, Ogden says she takes a hands-on approach. “I spend time with the kids we serve to remind myself on a daily basis why what we do is so essential to the future of our community,” she said.

In addition, she stands up for her team and prioritizes personal development. “No matter where we are with our budget, personal development is a priority,” said Ogden. “It’s essential to give your staff the opportunity to learn and grow.”

A true titan to the community, Ogden has been named as a Titan 100.
