PROVIDING FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR THE LARIMER COUNTY 4-H PROGRAM
The Larimer County 4-H Youth Foundation is a 501(C)3 Non-Profit Organization that was established in 1953. Governed by a Board of Trustees, the Foundation is an arm of the Colorado State University/Larimer County Extension Service and acts upon recommendations from the Larimer County Extension Service and its advisory groups to create and sustain positive youth development.
The primary purpose of the Foundation is to help provide financial support for educational opportunities for the approximate 400 volunteer adult leaders and 1,000 youth, ages 5 through 18, who participate directly in the Larimer County, Colorado, 4-H Program.
Educational opportunities include but are not limited to:
- Post-secondary education
- Youth and adult leadership and citizenry skills conferences and workshops
- Project workshops and competitions
- Camp experiences
- Counselor training
- Livestock and non-livestock events
The Foundation also provides financial support to Larimer County 4-H outreach activities that benefit more than 15,000 kids. Our main fundraiser is the 4-H Carnival held every spring!
