FERNDALE, Ark. – The Arkansas 4-H Foundation, a non-profit that supports the educational programs of 4-H, is kicking off a major development campaign called 20 for 2020.

“The program is simple: we are asking only $20 a month from January 2018 through January 2020,” said Ewell Welch, executive director of the foundation. “At that rate, each donor will have given $720 by the campaign’s end.”

Welch said the goal is to attract 1,000 donors through this campaign.

Generosity begins at home, and because 4-H is operated by the Cooperative Extension Service, Rick Cartwright, Cooperative Extension Service director, and his wife Lynnette, have already set a high standard, graciously providing the campaign’s first support with a $500 donation and a $50/month pledge.

Welch said the foundation was working with its bank to make the process for all donors as simple as possible whether by check; by credit card or through autodraft.

The foundation funds 4-H scholarships and operations at the C.A. Vines Arkansas 4-H Center, which hosts youth development, STEM education and adult education/teambuilding programs and serves as a retreat and conference center for a wide range of school, corporate, faith-based and non-profit clients.
