Texas 4-H Youth Development Foundation is the 501(c)(3) fundraising arm for Texas 4-H, the largest youth development program in Texas, serving more than half a million Texas young people.

The Foundation began as the “4-H Recognition Committee” in the early 1950s to recognize superior service and achievement among 4-H members and adult volunteers. That changed in 1962 when the recognition committee incorporated as the Texas 4-H Youth Development Foundation with a 501(c)(3) non-profit designation.
