Wyoming 4-H Foundation Increases Donations to Counties

December 5, 2013 — Wyoming State 4-H Foundation donations to counties increased by more than $53,000 in fiscal year 2013 for a total of $241,041.

4-H is the youth educational program administered by the University of Wyoming College of Agriculture and Applied Science. The foundation is a nonprofit organization that raises funds for the 4-H program, says UW 4-H Program Coordinator Johnathan Despain.

“Its sole purpose is to generate income, take in donations and do fundraising to support the 4-H programming efforts,” he says.

There are more than 7,000 Wyoming 4-H'ers. The foundation and the 4-H program work to expose these youths to subjects such as animal science, technology and natural resources. 4-H'ers gain life skills such as self-confidence and problem solving. 

The $53,000 increase in FY13 was due, in part, to successful fundraising events, but also due to a long-term benefactor who died and left a large amount to the foundation.

Benefit totals (to nearest dollar) to counties this year are:

Albany -- $15,549

Big Horn -- $16,952

Campbell -- $13,616

Carbon -- $5,520

Converse -- $9,185

Uinta County 4-H members work on an animal science skill-a-thon project. More than 7,000 youths statewide participate in 4-H programs.
