Foundation Grant Programs


The Ohio 4-H Foundation Grants Program provides 4-H professionals with much-needed support in building the capacity for positive youth development programming, and to train and recognize volunteers that are so essential to delivering those programs. In most cases, the Foundation is a partner, rather than the sole source of funds. Investments are made where the strategic use of resources is most in evidence and where the largest number of 4-H youth can be reached with the most meaningful and sustainable impact.

Impact reports for 2021 grants are due within 60 days of completion of the project or by December 31, 2021. The 2021 Grant Impact Report can be found here. Financial reporting instructions coming soon. Submit impact reports to Emily Niemann and Anna Bernard have prepared guidance for running financial reports in Workday to accompany your Grant Impact Report.
