Foundation Grant Programs

 

The Ohio 4-H Foundation Grants Program provides 4-H professionals with much-needed support in building the capacity for positive youth development programming, and to train and recognize volunteers that are so essential to delivering those programs. In most cases, the Foundation is a partner, rather than the sole source of funds. Investments are made where the strategic use of resources is most in evidence and where the largest number of 4-H youth can be reached with the most meaningful and sustainable impact.

2020/2021 impact report

Impact reports are due within 60 days of completion of the project or by December 31, 2021. Submit impact reports to ohio4hfoundation@osu.edu.

2022 4-H Priorities: Although the Ohio 4-H Foundation is open to all requests each year, specific Ohio 4-H priorities will be chosen annually. For the 2022 grant cycle, the following categories will be given priority: career awareness and workforce preparation, retention of current volunteers and older teens, and recruitment of 1st generation 4-H'ers and 4-H alumni as volunteers.
