Who We Are…

The Wisconsin 4‑H Foundation exists to provide essential support for the 4‑H Youth Development program – a program of the University of Wisconsin Extension, Cooperative Extension in partnership with state, federal and county government in each Wisconsin county. Individuals, corporations, and foundations are partners in providing support for a network of Cooperative Extension staff and more than 20,000 adult and youth volunteers in shaping nearly 150,000 4‑H youth who take part in various 4‑H activities throughout the state.

Our partners help 4‑H create cutting-edge, relevant programs for young people to learn real-world skills that will prepare them for the challenges of today and tomorrow, moving communities, the state, our county and the world forward in ways no other youth organization can. Our partners know that 4‑H is proven - it’s the research. According to the 4‑H Study of Positive Youth Development by Tufts University, 4‑H youth are:


  • 6 times more likely to be at the highest levels of positive development
  • More likely to see themselves going to college compared to other youth
  • 25% more likely to contribute to themselves, their families, and communities
  • 41% less likely to engage in high risk behaviors
