Thank you to everyone who contributed to the 4-H Camp Needs You Now Buckeye Funder campaign! The generosity of supporters like you means we have raised more than $170,000 since May. Many of the camps successfully reached their first-round fundraising goals and this could not have been done without the support of the 4-H community. Although the camps aren’t open, these funds will help to keep camps viable through the year until campers can return in the future.
Although this was a successful effort, our work is not done. Many of our 4-H camps lost 75% or more of their annual income this year, totaling a $1.1 million deficit. If you or someone you know can still donate to support Ohio 4-H camps, the Buckeye Funder link will remain open through the end of August.
