Special Announcement: The 2024 Legacy Dinner and Auction is scheduled for June 13 in the Ed Sands/Farm Bureau Building on the Fairfield County Fairgrounds.

The Fairfield County 4-H Youth Development program strives to teach leadership, citizenship and life skills to approximately 1200 traditional 4-H club members each year. While most of these young people participate in the traditional 4-H club experiences, an additional 1,800 youth are exposed to 4-H work through school enrichment programs. And children who are not yet 4-H age can participate in a non-competing, activity based curriculum known as the Cloverbud program. In addition, the 4-H Youth Development program also creates training and leadership opportunities for nearly 250 4-H advisors in our county.
While dollars to support the 4-H Youth Development program are received cooperatively through Federal, State and County funding, several years ago friends and former 4-Hers met to begin what is now known as the Fairfield County 4-H Endowment. The mission of this Endowment and the Board who manage it is to raise awareness and dollars for long term investment in the 4-H program. Our hope is to leave a Legacy for 4-Hers for generations to come.
Our major fundraiser each year is the Legacy Dinner. The event typically begins with a social hour and silent auction, followed by dinner and a program/live auction. The entire evening is dedicated to the benefit of the Fairfield County 4-H Endowment while you will enjoy great food and fellowship with other supporters of our county’s 4-H program.
We invite you to help us leave a legacy by simply attending, donating items for the silent/live auction or sponsoring the event.
If you have questions, or need further information, please do not hesitate to contact any member of the 4-H Endowment Board. Please find linked below, very soon, the various forms that allow you to order your tickets, or to commit to one of the other forms of sponsorship.
