What's the difference between this and the 4-H Foundation?
The Kansas 4-H Foundation uses its funds to support a wide variety of statewide programs.
Your donation to the Bourbon County 4-H Development Fund is designed specifically to benefit Bourbon County's 4-H members and youth programs.
How is the program funded?
Funding comes from gifts and donations from people like you. Overhead costs are very low because the Development Fund has no paid staff.
What a great birthday, anniversary, or holiday gift to honor those hard-to-buy-for people in your life. Or perhaps your Development Fund is a will, trust or insurance policy.
Any contribution, regardless of the amount, will be acknowledged with a receipt and heartfelt thanks!
Checks may be made payable to the Bourbon County 4-H Development Fund and mailed to Southwind Extension, 210 South National, Fort Scott, KS 66701-1330.
Are donations tax-deductible?
Yes. A ruling issued to the U.S. Department of Agriculture by the Internal Revenue Service on Feb. 9, 1973 recognized the charitable status on 4-H clubs and affiliated organizations.
