The Iowa 4-H Foundation provides financial resources for youth development through 4-H.
Funding Opportunities for Iowa's Youth is the position statement we use to clarify how our mission gets accomplished. The Iowa 4-H Foundation provides funds for many of the opportunities – recognition, national 4-H trips, and scholarships and special programs– that allow young people to experience the benefits of 4-H. The opportunities we help fund for young people enhance their ability to use critical thinking, leadership, communication, and social skills – tools that will give them a competitive edge in their future endeavors.
We are a charitable 501(c)(3) organization with a volunteer governing board of up to 32 trustees and five full-time staff. Our office is located in the Extension 4-H Youth Building on the campus of Iowa State University.
