Supporting positive youth development
The Missouri 4-H Foundation is the independent philanthropic partner of the University of Missouri Extension 4-H Center for Youth Development. Our mission is to maximize 4-H youth development through resource acquisition and management.
Established in 1949, the Missouri 4-H Foundation partners with universities, corporations, foundations and individuals to build stronger 4-H programs and provide financial support to benefit Missouri's youth. We help empower young people in every county of the state to learn by doing and become the leaders of tomorrow.
