What is a County 4-H Endowment?

County 4-H endowments are permanent funds made possible through individual donations, business and corporate contributions, and fundraising events.

The principal is invested permanently through the Ohio State University to generate the maximum interest possible.  The interest income returns to the county to fund local 4-H youth development education programs and adds value to the county endowment to keep pace with inflation.
