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 are most in evidence and where the largest number of 4-H youth can be reached with the most meaningful and sustainable impact.

Impact reports for 2020 grants are due within 60 days of completion of the project or by December 31, 2020. The?2020 Grant Impact Report?can be found here.?Submit impact reports to
