Programs We Fund
The Massachusetts 4-H Foundation supports youth development activities from club programs and supplies, to teen participation in national leadership conferences, to science and technology programs for underprivileged youth, and more!
What is 4-H?
4-H is the largest youth development organization in the world. Delivered by more than 100 public universities across the nation through the extension system, 4-H enables young people ages 5-18 to “learn by doing” and gain lifetime skills.
Held each September, the Shirley Kane Memorial 4-H Golf Tournament supports Massachusetts 4-H. 100% of the tournament’s proceeds go directly to 4-H programs, such as club needs, STEM sessions, and leadership conferences for teens. Learn more here
