CSU web-ext-lin-green-450

Southeast Area—The Prowers County 4-H Foundation is holding their third annual “Membership Madness” round-up.  This is an opportunity for 4-H alumni, businesses or individuals to become a supporting member of Prowers County 4-H programming and Foundation is pleased to have seen support grow each year.  The Prowers County 4-H Foundation is heavily invested in supporting our 4-H future in the form of scholarships, leader training, grants, state and national conference sponsorship and project material support.  4-H empowers youth to reach their full potential by working and learning along with advancing knowledge in agriculture, the environment, human health, and well-being with communities creating opportunities for youth and adult volunteers.

The 2014 4-H Foundation board consists of Leonard Pruett, Bert Davis, Tom Salisbury, Peter Page, Rick Robbins, Judy Souders, the Prowers County Commissioners, Lori Peterson-Payne, Nick Weber, Brittany Carrigan, Chad Hart, David Emick, Diane Pool and Lynn Schwartz, Josh Emick, Nick Palmer and Tony Peck.

Foundation currently provides scholarship opportunities, as well as educational and leadership trips and learning opportunities.  Your donation of $25 or more entitles you to become a supporting member.  As an incentive for the local 4-H’ers to become more active with the 4-H Foundation we developed a program with the 4-H clubs to bring in new Foundation members.  For every new 4-H Foundation Member a club signs up, the Foundation will split dues with the club.  This way we all benefit, we gain new members and 4-H clubs benefit as a fundraising activity.

In that regard, we would like to welcome anyone to consider becoming a 2014 supporting member with a donation of $25 or more.  If you would like to donate additional money please make a note below.  Please make your check payable to the “Prowers County 4-H Foundation” and send to the noted address with completed form below.  If you are contacted personally by a 4-H member feel free to give your membership donation to them along with the form.  We thank you in advance for your support of the Prowers County 4-H program.

If you know anyone interested in becoming an active member of the Foundation, please feel free to have them contact us, or let the Extension office know and we can contact them.  Once again your support is greatly appreciated. The Prowers County 4-H Foundation is a 501(c)(3) and your donation is tax deductible.
