4-H'ers for 4-H

Count Your Clovers

Dear Iowa 4-H Clubs;

For almost 40 years, youth like us have raised dollars for the 4-H’ers for 4-H Campaign, one of the nation’s longest running youth campaigns FOR 4-H’ers BY 4-H’ers! We know how much we’ve benefited from being in 4-H and now is our opportunity to give back!

As members of the State 4-H Council Youth Philanthropy Committee, we’d like to invite you to be a part of this year’s campaign! We have a goal to raise $27,000 this year and invite you to contribute $4 per member.

But what does the campaign support? We’re glad you asked!

    • Financial aid for enrollment fees

    • Scholarships to attend state-wide events

    • Support for State 4-H Conference

    • Support for State 4-H Council

Basically, through this campaign, you can help make sure the 4-H Program is strong and that all kids can be a part of 4-H. 

Will you join us? Commit to being a part of the campaign and make a difference for YOUR 4-H Program! Imagine what we can do together—we can make a difference!
