Farm Credit Canada (FCC) is continuing its support of 4-H Canada, by providing $114,250 to 233 clubs across the country as part of the FCC 4-H Club Fund.

The fund is part of FCC’s $250,000 annual commitment towards 4-H Canada.

“4-H Canada is extremely grateful for our longstanding partnership with FCC, and for its continued support of the 4-H Club Fund,” said 4-H Canada CEO, Shannon Benner. “The 4-H movement in Canada continues to thrive through the generosity of visionary partners like FCC, who share the same values and commitment to engaging young leaders at the grassroots level in communities across Canada.”

Awards of up to $500 will support projects including achievement days, skill-building workshops, field trips, public speaking competitions, and the purchase of club supplies.

“This is a long-term investment in a national organization dedicated to developing leadership, confidence and values in young people who want to contribute to this vibrant and dynamic industry,” said Todd Klink, executive vice-president and chief marketing officer at FCC. “By supporting 4-H clubs across Canada, the FCC 4-H Club Fund is helping plant the seeds for the next generation of successful farmers, agri-food and agribusiness entrepreneurs.”

The next application period for FCC 4-H Club Funds opens in August 2019.
