Ways to Give

Making an Endowment: Everlasting Support for 4-H

An endowment can be created to continuously benefit a 4-H initiative or county 4-H program with a minimum gift of $15,000.

If you would like to designate your endowment for a specific 4-H program or purpose, please contact the Illinois 4-H Foundation staff to develop a fund agreement that will detail your wishes to be carried out so that your gift supports the specific 4-H program(s) you choose. Establishing a named endowment insures a way to provide support to 4-H that truly lasts forever.
