How 4-H is Financed

The 4-H program is supported by a unique blend of tax funds (county, state, and federal) and private donations. State and federal tax funds are used to help pay extension staff salaries and to provide educational materials. County money supports the operation of local extension offices. Private funds support 4-H activities including camps, awards, judging contests, leader training, and special program efforts.

Wyoming State 4-H Foundation

Because of the importance of private funds in supporting a well-rounded 4-H program, the Wyoming State 4-H Foundation was established in 1976 as a nonprofit vehicle to receive private donations in support of the Wyoming 4-H. The foundation has a board of directors and provides financial support for 4-H programs at both state and county levels.
