    Endowment Fund

    The Waukesha County 4-H Endowment Fund is organized and operated for the exclusive purpose of providing long-term financial support for 4-H activities in Waukesha County. Your contribution will not only be used to enrich and expand current 4-H activities but also develop new 4-H programs within Waukesha County.

    The Endowment Fund supports: Educational resources and program materials; Youth and Leader training; Youth scholarships to leadership development programs such as State 4-H Youth Conference, Citizenship Washington Focus, National 4-H Congress and National 4-H Conference; Awards and college scholarships to recognize 4-H achievement; summer camp.

    How the Fund Works. The Waukesha County 4-H Endowment Fund can accept gifts and donations to the Waukesha County 4-H program.  The goal of this fund is to distribute earnings to the Waukesha County 4-H Leader’s Association.  The Trust Board is authorized on an annual basis to distribute up to 75% of the income of the Trust for the calendar year.  The Trust Board is instructed to retain all capital gains recognized until such time as the trust reaches $50,000.  We are currently at around $35,000.

    Who can contribute? Anyone can contribute.  Gifts of any size are welcome and appreciated.  As a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, your gift to the Waukesha County 4-H Endowment Fund is fully tax deductible.  Cash gifts as well as gifts of stock, real estate and land are acceptable.

    Your gift can be a memorial or a bequest, or can be made in honor or in remembrance of a special person, event, or occasion. All gifts will be acknowledged to the honoree or family of the memorialized as appropriate.
