Our mission at the Montana 4-H Foundation is to help 4-H youth by raising private funds, managing financial resources, and partnering with the MSU Extension Service to fund educational opportunities for Montana 4-H youth, volunteer leaders, and staff.
Each year, the Montana 4-H Foundation provides approximately $120,000 in direct support of the over 23,000 4-H members and almost 5,000 volunteers. This partnership with MSU Extension and the 4-H Center for Youth Development allows many youth and leaders to participate in educational, social, and often life-changing experiences that mold them into caring and contributing citizens and community leaders.
The Montana 4-H Foundation, founded in 1969, serves as a non-profit corporation supporting the continued development and growth of the statewide 4-H program. The generous support of donors, volunteers, businesses and community partners help make possible the many opportunities available to 4-H youth and leaders.
