Supporters of Clare County 4-H programs have opportunity to double their personal support for 4-H by helping to “Make the Match for Clare County 4-H.”
Clare County has set a goal of raising $4,000 locally which, if successful, will result in the county 4-H program qualifying for a 1:1 match from the Michigan 4-H Foundation of every dollar raised to add to their existing endowment for 4-H programs in Clare County.
“In 2007, Clare County 4-H Council created an endowment with the Michigan 4-H Foundation to help provide support to the 4-H program. This match campaign is a great way to grow our existing endowment and make a bigger impact on youth in Clare County.” explained, Michelle Neff, MSU Extension Educator.
The Clare County 4-H Endowment provides annual support for current 4-H program delivery, for future 4-H program enhancements and other areas of greatest need that would serve to advance delivery of 4-H in the Clare County.
The “Make the Match for Clare County” campaign is made possible by grants from the Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation, the Rollin M. Gerstacker Foundation and gifts made by individual leadership donors to the Michigan 4-H Foundation. The goal is to raise $1 million in endowment for county 4-H programs in Michigan that will in turn be doubled by the match from these leadership contributors.
