Giving to Missouri 4-H
Missouri 4-H Foundation endowments
Create an endowment and your gift will go on living in perpetuity, which is just another way of saying forever! An endowment can help you achieve your philanthropic goals and create a legacy for Missouri 4-H.
How endowments work:
- You give cash, securities or other assets to an existing endowment or an endowment you create with the Missouri 4-H Foundation. If you can't give assets today, consider making a gift in your will or other estate plan, specifying that you would like your gift to be used to fund an endowment.
- You determine if your endowment will be designated to fund a specific 4-H program, or given without restrictions to allow our board of trustees to direct the fund to our most critical needs.
- We use a small portion of the fund to support our mission, but the initial balance always remains invested in order to perpetuate the fund.
