The Ohio 4-H Foundation



The mission of the Ohio 4-H Foundation is to promote, expand, and give recognition to the Ohio 4-H Youth Development Program, solicit contributions and gifts, and recognize youth and adult volunteers.

Several values help determine the Board’s plan of action each year:
  • Youth development is the focus of all 4-H activities.
  • 4-H encourages individuals to reach their potential.
  • Partnerships are essential to successful youth development.
  • Volunteerism is fundamental.
  • Diversity strengthens 4-H.

Through fundraising events such as the annual An Evening of Ohio Wine and Food and donor gifts made to the Foundation, County and Named Endowments, the Ohio 4-H Foundation is able to raise nearly $1.1 million annually to benefit the Ohio 4-H Youth Development Program.
