Giving to MU Extension
4-H Foundation Endowment Funds Reaching Many Missouri Counties
County endowment funds created by the Missouri 4-H Foundation have had a significant impact on many Missouri counties within the last year.
County endowment funds: a way of paying forward
Ever since Dr. Maude Harris, County Engagement Specialist in Nutrition and Health, started working for MU Extension in Scott County 26 years ago, she has donated a portion of each paycheck to her county’s endowment fund.
Giving back to help youth build belonging and community
One donor with a vision can make such a powerful difference in the lives of Missouri youth. A generous estate gift from Kathryn McKillip Thrift to the Missouri 4-H Foundation is one such example. Her gift will provide for the creation of two endowment funds: one to provide a permanent source of support for Missouri 4-H camp programs; the second to support the Lone Star 4-H Club and 4-H youth development program in Crawford County, Missouri.
