4-H Legacy Dinner Cancelled

To our friends and supporters of the Fairfield County 4-H Endowment, we thank you for your continued support of all our efforts. After much careful and thoughtful consideration, the 4-H Endowment Board has decided to cancel the 11th annual 4-H Legacy Dinner which was originally scheduled for June 11, 2020 at the Fairfield County Fairgrounds. This is the result of extreme caution and the concerns for safe distancing and the co-mingling of large numbers of people during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please watch your mailbox for a communication from the Endowment Committee offering a giving opportunity that will ultimately assist 4-H Clubs with payment of their county-wide 4-H dues. Again, we sincerely thank you for your support of the Fairfield County 4-H Endowment and their activities.

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact any of the Endowment Board members.

Are you ready to “Get your Give On?”

30-Hours of Giving, December 3rd at 8am – December 4th at 2pm

#GivingTuesday is a nationwide movement to raise awareness of community philanthropy and encourage spending with a purpose. Similar to how Black Friday and Cyber Monday have become days that are synonymous with holiday shopping, the goal of #GivingTuesday is to designate a day dedicated to giving back, where people will take collaborative action to improve their local communities, support their favorite charities and causes, and help create a better world.

In Fairfield County, we celebrate #GivingTuesday with the 30-Hour Give through the Fairfield County Foundation. This year the Fairfield County Foundation is ready to help local community members increase their impact by awarding $30,000 in gifts, matching donations made over 30 hours, starting December 3 at 8am and running through December 4 at 2pm.

For the last six years, the Fairfield County Foundation has participated in #GivingTuesday, inspiring our local community members to work together to improve the community and Continue reading

The 4-H Legacy ‘Giving Tree’

The ‘Giving Tree’ offers another alternative for folks to give back to 4-H. In this brief video, Sherry Kilbarger explains how money, up to a total of $1000, donated to the Fairfield County 4-H Endowment through the ‘Giving Tree’ will be matched by Ohio State, thus, doubling the value of your donation.

Why Do These Local Businessmen Choose to ‘Give Back?’

Have you ever wondered why a couple of local businessmen might feel it important to find a way to give back to their 4-H roots? Connie visits with Fairfield County 4-H alums Ron Ruff and Steve Eversole and explores why they take time each year to participate in the activities of the 4-H Endowment Board, and the annual Legacy Dinner and Auction.

There’s an opportunity for everyone to help “leave a legacy!”

The 2019 4-H Endowment Dinner is less than 1 month away!! Please mark your calendar for Thursday, June 13 and plan to join us at the Ed Sands/Farm Bureau Building on the Historic Fairfield County Fairgrounds for our Annual Legacy Dinner & Auction.

Can you believe this will be the 10th Anniversary of Legacy Dinner celebrations that have been held for the benefit the 4-H Youth of Fairfield County?

4-H Endowment is THANKFUL for YOUR Support

This past year the Fairfield County 4-H Endowment board has been extremely busy. First, our annual fund raising effort was held in mid-June at the Miller Farm Shop near Pleasantville. With nearly 300 individuals in attendance, we were able to raise over $20,000 for the 4-H Endowment funds. Those funds will ultimately help to sponsor trips, educational events and purchase program supplies for youth currently enrolled in the Fairfield County 4-H program.

Fast forward to Sunday, October 7, 2018 and the 4-H Endowment board gathered again to help kick off the Fairfield County Fair with a pancake flippin’ good time awareness Breakfast. Again, nearly 300 early morning 4-H members, parents and friends enjoyed the donation breakfast. It has become a tradition and a great way to start the Fairfield County Fair.

During the 4-H Panorama, the 4-H Endowment board presented a check for over Continue reading
