Three Great Funds in Which to Donate
York County 4-H Futures Fund
The 4-H Futures Fund was established by the York County 4-H Advisory Council to support educational programming . The Mission of 4-H is to empower youth to reach their full potential working and learning in partnership with caring adults.
4-H touches the lives of youth between five and 18 years of age. Through 4-H, youth gain leadership skills, positive selfesteem, teamwork, plus knowledge and skills that enhance their school experience and eventually, their workplace.
Contributions to support educational programs should be made payable to "York County Community Foundation, 4-H Futures Fund".
York County 4-H Endowments
There are two funds entitled "York County 4-H Endowment". Both of these funds provide financial support for the maintenance and improvements to the buildings and grounds of the 4-H Center, our educational facility/campus.
The original York County 4-H Endowment was created in 1983 by Robert Stover and is managed by a volunteer board of trustees.
Donations to this fund should be made payable to "York County 4-H Endowment".
The second fund was established in 2008 as a memorial to former County Extension Director, Tony Dobrosky. This endowment is held at the York County Community Foundation, which manages endowments for more then 80 charitable organizations and over 200 private family funds.
Contributions to this fund can be made to "York County Community Foundation - York County 4-H Endowment".
PA 4-H Keystone Society
Our 4-H Endowment at Penn State builds funds to benefit future 4-H youth development programming. In part, these funds will provide scholarships to 4-H youth to attend county, state and national events.
Penn State's Office of Outreach Development manages the account. Once the endowment reaches $25,000, the monies will begin to support our local 4-H programs.
A donation of $2,500 or a pledge of $500 per year for five years entitles donors to membership in the Keystone Society.
Each member of the Society will receive a commemorative pin and will also be invited to an annual Penn State tailgate function at University Park.
