Every 4-H member and all 4-H alumni immediately recognize the four cornerstones of the 4-H pledge. And anyone who has had the opportunity to watch a 4-H member in action can plainly see the impact of those four words.

Click HERE to read how the pledge has impacted Wisconsin 4-Hers, and how you can help.

Perhaps you recited the pledge for the first time in a basement or gymnasium or fellowship hall. Or maybe you are just now learning about the 4-H pledge. In either case, the pledge is a challenge to our youth and it’s a road map to success.

Sadly, we know that for many youth, learning and living the 4-H pledge is not possible. It may be transportation or communication or finances. But youth across Wisconsin face barriers to becoming part of the 4-H movement. But we need your help. The need is great, but our resources are limited. Will you make a contribution that will help the 4-H Foundation ensure that 4-H programming reaches every corner of the state? We want every young person to have a chance to learn the pledge and to know the importance of clearer thinking, greater loyalty, larger service and better living.


You are invited to become a partner in our future by supporting Wisconsin 4-H. Your gift to the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation will help continue to give youth opportunities to be their best. The Wisconsin 4-H Foundation is dedicated to providing essential funding for 4-H programs that teach young people the skills necessary to become responsible, productive citizens.

Hands-on 4-H activities emphasize communication skills, self-confidence, sound decision-making practices, and community concern, all of which prepare today’s youth to be our leaders tomorrow. Click here for our  Non-Discrimination Statement and Donor Bill of Rights.

All gifts generated as a result of this appeal will support outreach programs designed to provide a 4-H experience to Wisconsin youth.
