Madison County 4-H Endowment

What is a county 4-H Endowment? 

County 4-H endowments are permanent funds made possible through individual donations, business and corporate contributions, and fund raising events. 
 
Principal is invested permanently though the Ohio 4-H Foundation to generate the maximum interest possible. The interest income returns to the county to fund local 4-H youth development education programs, and adds value to the county endowment to keep pace with inflation. 

Does Madison County have a 4-H Endowment Fund? 

Yes. Our 4-H Endowment was officially recognized by the Ohio State University Development Fund in 1992 upon reaching a goal of $15,000. Many local individuals deserve credit for their time and money spent to realize this goal. 

Is a gift to the Madison County Endowment fund recognized as a gift to The Ohio State University? 

Yes. Contributions are sent to the State 4-H office earmarked for the Madison County 4-H Endowment Fund and deposited with the Ohio 4-H Foundation which is a part of the university's development fund. 

Why is it necessary to have a county 4-H Endowment? 

County, state and federal budgets are very restricted, and usually cannot be stretched to provide more than the basic necessities. Interest income from county endowments can supplement these budgets in addition to annual contributions to help assist with: 

  • awards for youth and adult volunteers
  • providing added incentives
  • development of new programs
  • youth and volunteer education
  • scholarships
  • purchasing of program materials

Is my gift tax deductible?

Yes.  The Ohio 4-H Foundation and Madison County Endowment is a 501 (c)(3) charitable foundation. Consult your accountant or tax attorney for specific guidance on your gift.
