The Louisiana 4-H Foundation provides financial support to Louisiana 4-H through the contributions of donors and fund raising activities.

The Foundation provides funding in seven areas. Please donate to the areas that are dear to your heart. Your endowed and non-endowed contributions will touch the youth of today and tomorrow.

Funding Needs Description
Camping Program

Program materials, supplies and activity equipment; sponsorships of youth; transportation cost.

Character Education

Educational Programs  Activities and Awards Educational trips for short course competition winners and youth representing Louisiana in national 4-H functions, Challenge camp, Clothing camp, Citizenship Louisiana focus, Marsh maneuvers, Sci-tech program, others as appropriate.
General Funds     General funds are among the most important Foundation funds and support activities that do not have funds dedicated to them. They are also used when the cost of an activity is more than the interest earned from dedicated funds.

Volunteer Leader Development

Camp Grant Walker

The size of the camp facility has nearly doubled over the past several years and facilities are in constant need of updating and expansion. Our most pressing current needs include the addition of cabin restrooms and creation of more opportunities for 4-H campers, ongoing, such as horseback riding and sport fishing.

Grow the Clover

Grow the Clover is the annual campaign designed to encourage participation of the 4-H family in supporting the initiatives of Louisiana Campaign for 4-H Fund. This non-endowed  annual campaign provides general support to address the Foundation's most pressing needs. Grow the Clover helps in many ways, such as to fund educational trips, sponsor statewide youth competitions, provide awards, provide administrative and programmatic support, and much more. Contributors to this program are recognized as sustaining "Champions" of the 4-H Foundation and qualify for gift club membership recognition.
