Texas 4-H Youth Development Foundation raises money for Texas 4-H because we believe 4-H improves the lives of Texas youth.
Research has shown that young people who participate in 4-H are more likely to make better grades in school, attend college, be physically active and become engaged citizens.
And we believe that means a better Texas.
Here are giving areas for Texas 4-H:
Opportunity Scholarship Program
A $3,000 gift provides a deserving Texas 4-H youth with a Texas 4-H Opportunity Scholarship in one of four areas:
- Baccalaureate Degree Scholarships
- Technical Certification Scholarships
- Collegiate Scholarship
- Courageous Heart Award
More than 200 scholarships were awarded in 2017, ranging from $3,000-20,000.
Texas 4-H sponsors events that build productive skills and leadership abilities among Texas 4-H members.
Texas 4-H staff and volunteers request specific monies for their respective events. The Foundation will fund as many requests as possible. All statewide initiatives support goes directly into the events to provide the best possible experience for 4-H members.
