The Farm Credit Canada (FCC) 4-H Club Fund will provide $100,000 to 203 4-H clubs, districts, and regions across Canada in 2021, to support local activities.

A strong supporter of 4-H in Canada for over 25 years, FCC supports 4-H club initiatives each year by awarding up to $500 per club toward developing existing programs, covering costs associated with local events and exchanges, supporting volunteers, or purchasing resource materials.

“By providing opportunities for young people to learn and grow, 4-H clubs across the country are preparing the next generation for success,” said Todd Klink, executive vice-president and chief marketing officer at FCC. “FCC is proud to support these initiatives and the 4-H clubs that are helping develop our future leaders.”

The Club Fund is part of FCC’s commitment of $250,000 to 4-H Canada. In addition to supporting local 4-H club activities through the FCC 4-H Club Fund, this contribution supports national and provincial 4-H initiatives.

“For over a quarter of a century, FCC has been a committed partner, helping 4-H Canada empower young leaders at the grassroots level in communities across the country,” said 4-H Canada CEO, Shannon Benner. “The FCC 4-H Club Fund helps build capacity for 4-H clubs and leaders to create programming that focuses on delivering world-class positive youth development in order to engage responsible, caring, and contributing youth leaders who effect positive change within their communities and in the world around them.”

A list of 2020-2021 4-H Club recipients and information on how to apply can be found here.

The next application period for the FCC 4-H Club Fund opens in August 2021
