Welcome to the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation!


The Wisconsin 4-H Foundation was founded in the early 1950s and was recognized by the IRS as a charitable organization in 1955, with its purpose as a non-profit organization charged with generating support for the Wisconsin 4-H program. Today the Foundation continues that mission to invest in the positive development of 4-H youth.

The Foundation works with partners to provide resources so 4-H can create cutting-edge, relevant programs for young people to learn real-world skills that will prepare them for the challenges of today and tomorrow.

The four H’s stand for Head, Heart, Hands and Health, and are a reminder that 4-H is more than a single project or activity. 4-H is about developing life-skills that are used to create a better place for everyone to live. Our 4-H clover, with its prominent Hs, is the visual reminder of the importance of learning, growing and reaching.

I’m proud of our 4-H youth, and hope you will join me in supporting 4-H so we can make a positive impact.
