Every dollar we receive from donors goes directly to our education programs here in the Lake Region. The foresight of the Maine 4-H Foundation founders enables us to use interest income to cover operational costs. Therefore, when you generously give to our Annual Fund through this website (or any other means), you can be confident your gift has a direct impact on the young people of Maine.
There are a few ways to make a donation:
Maine 4-H Foundation
York Complex #1
Orono, Maine 04469
Our Annual Fund supports the activities of the 4-H program during a single calendar year. To make a gift to the Annual Fund, donate online or contact Angela Martin at 207-581-3739 or at [email protected].
Sponsorships are available to corporations, organizations, and individuals who would like to make a gift towards supporting a particular event or activity. Depending on the event, the foundation typically offers varying levels of advertisement of a sponsorship based on the level of giving.
An Endowed Gift allows a person, organization, or corporation to have a very lasting impact on the Maine 4-H Program. A donation deemed an endowed gift is invested and produces a spendable interest income for the foundation to use in support of the 4-H program in Maine. If the principle amount is never used, the gift will give forever. The Maine 4-H Foundation typically receives this type of gift as a named scholarship or program fund. These endowed funds support a program annually, or provides a scholarship given each year to a graduating 4-H member going on to higher education. However, the possibilities for a gift of this kind are virtually endless.
Legacy Gift Consider a legacy gift for Maine youth. 4-H changes lives, inspires success, and encourages aspirations. The Maine 4-H Foundation can help you establish a fund that will support Maine youth forever. Consider a gift or leaving a bequest with the Maine 4-H Foundation.
