Make a Memorial or Tribute Gift

Memorial and tribute gifts are charitable contributions that support Wisconsin 4-H and at the same time honor friends and family members.

Memorial gifts make a lasting tribute to the memory of family members and friends. Tribute gifts recognize the contributions and talents of living persons or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday, graduation or anniversary.

Upon receipt of your gift, the foundation will send an acknowledgement of your thoughtfulness to whomever you designate.

If you want to inform others of your desire for memorial gifts to the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation, you may wish include the following phrase in an obituary notice: “Memorial contributions may be made to the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation at PO Box 78011, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53278-0011 or online at”


Gifts by will, whether in the form of cash, securities, or other property, may be fully deducted in determining federal estate taxes and state death taxes. You may designate a specific sum as a gift to Wisconsin 4-H or a portion of the remainder of your estate after provisions for survivors are fulfilled, or a combination of these.

The Heritage Society

The Heritage Society was created to recognize those forward-thinking individuals who have remembered the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation in their estate or gift planning process or plans. The members of The Heritage Society enable the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation to provide support for our 4-H youth. By making a bequest to the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation, you ensure that our mission is addressed well into the future. By informing us in writing that you have named us as a beneficiary in your will or estate plan, you become a member of The Heritage Society.
