4-H Foundation Announces the 4-H Grows Campaign 

Ryan Hensley, Executive Director, TN 4-H Foundation

The Tennessee 4-H Foundation is proud to introduce the 4-H Grows Campaign. The 4-H Grows Campaign offers a $1000 incentive for county and regional 4-H Programs to increase the value of local 4-H Foundation endowments.

How it works:

Between now and December 31, 2017, the Tennessee 4-H Foundation will deposit $1000 into your local 4-H Foundation expense account after the county raises $2000 for one of the local 4-H Foundation endowments. Example: If Wilson County raises $2000 to grow the Wilson County 4-H Endowment. Then the Tennessee 4-H Foundation will deposit $1000 into the Wilson County expense account.

The $1000 incentive will be available for you to spend on your county or regional 4-H Program and the $2000 added to the local endowment will generate around $100 per year for your local 4-H program.

Fine Print:

  1. Only one $1000 incentive per county or region.
  2. The funds must be new to the 4-H Foundation.
    i.e. Funds may not be transfer from another 4-H Foundation account to receive the incentive.
  3. Counties and regions may split the required $2000 into multiple 4-H Foundation endowments.

Example: If Loudon County raises $1000 for the Loudon County 4-H Endowment and $1000 for the Sara Brakebill Scholarship Endowment. Then the 4-H Foundation will deposit $1000 into the expense account of Loudon County’s choosing.

This is a great opportunity to grow local funds and the local 4-H program. The Ten- nessee 4-H Foundation is proud to partner with the you. Please help us invest in the youth of Tennessee.
