Funds of the Des Moines County Endowment will be used to support local 4-H’ers. Including and not limited to scholarships for participation in local, state and national trips, educational scholarships, awards and recognition of members, offset participation fees and much more.
Through the establishment of the county endowment, a local endowment board has been established. Members are President: Chuck Kulow, Vice President: Dean VanNess, Secretary: Pat Fritz, Jennifer Lane and Kathy Strawhacker. Assisting the board are Mary Steffener, Office Assistant and Kati Peiffer, Youth Program Specialist.
The previous supporters of the Friends of 4-H are greatly appreciated and we anticipate this new partnership will strengthen opportunities for supporters and provide additional opportunities for youth in Des Moines County.
