COVID-19 4-H Resilience Fund – NEW

For the 70,000 young people who experience 4-H each year across Kansas, 2020 has presented unique obstacles due to COVID-19. As a response to these needs, the Kansas 4-H Foundation created the COVID-19 4-H Resilience Fund.  This fund was created to meet the critical and immediate needs of Kansas 4-H and Rock Springs Ranch. Generous donors have committed to doubling the impact of you gift to this fund. Beginning May 1, the first $20,000 in gifts to the COVID-19 4-H Resilience Fund will be matched!
