Fairfield County 4-H Supporter,
It’s the giving season, and I wanted to make you aware of an opportunity to increase the impact of your charitable dollars for a program that impacts more than 1,200 youth a year in traditional 4-H clubs and 1,800 youth through school enrichment programs within the county.
Starting at 8 a.m. on November 28, the Fairfield County Foundation (one location where funds are invested for the Fairfield County 4-H Endowment) will host their 10th annual #GivingTuesday event.
This year, during the 34-Hour Give, the Foundation will award $34,000 in gifts, matching donations made over 34 hours. Plus, the Foundation is giving away an additional $10,000 this year!
When to Give: November 28 at 8 a.m. through November 29 at 6 p.m.
How to Give:
- Donate online at FairfieldCountyFoundation.org through the “Donate Now” button (search “4-H Fairfield County Foundation Fund”), OR
- In-person to the Fairfield County Foundation offices, located at 162 E. Main Street in Lancaster between 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
These donations must be made online or in-person during the specified 34-hour timeframe to count toward matching funds. Donations received through the mail will not count toward the match. The 34-Hour Give will last until 6 p.m. on November 29.
Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated; however, the Foundation’s online platform only accepts donations starting at $10. You can learn more about the 34-Hour Give by visiting FairfieldCountyFoundation.org.
As you know, 4-H provides invaluable opportunities for our county’s youth, allowing them to master projects, develop life skills and experience new opportunities. The Fairfield County 4-H Endowment Board was established for the purpose of securing funds to ensure the longevity of the 4-H program in Fairfield County. Your financial support to our endowment funds is needed to secure opportunities for future generations.
Your support in leaving a legacy for Fairfield County 4-H youth is greatly appreciated.
President, Fairfield County 4-H Endowment Board
