Clinton County 4-H Foundation

The Clinton County 4-H Endowment Fund is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that works in partnership with the Iowa 4-H Foundation and the Clinton County Extension Council to provide financial resources for youth development through 4-H.

We provide the financial resources to develop, deliver and enhance quality 4-H youth programs throughout Clinton County. These opportunities help young people enhance their ability to use critical thinking, leadership, communication, and social skills – tools that will give them a competitive edge in their future endeavors.

Youth involved in the 4-H and Clover Kids programs in Clinton County are eligible to apply for financial assistance for a wide variety of youth development programs, events and scholarships.

The Clinton County Endowment Fund is supported by fundraisers held by the Clinton County 4-H Foundation Committee and by memorial donations and monetary gifts.  All proceeds are only used towards 4-H youth educational purposes.
