Idaho 4-H

Friends of 4-H

4-H prepares young people for challenges in their community and the world. 4-H youth get the hands-on, real-world experience they need to become leaders. Your gift to the Friends of 4-H Fund will have an impact on youth in your local community, helping them to obtain the characteristics needed to be successful. Programs across the state depend on annual contributions to fund their programs so that all interested youth have the opportunity to participate. Your gift, no matter the size, will help these programs continue to succeed. 


Idaho 4-H builds on the strength of state and local youth development professionals. Research-based curriculum is provided through the University of Idaho College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. Learn More...

We can't thank you enough.
May 16, 2018

For 1,889 minutes last week, Vandals from nearly every state and across the globe came together to support and celebrate the things we all love about the University of Idaho. Whether you made a gift or shared your love for U of I on social media by becoming an ambassador, the Vandal family made a statement together in raising nearly half a million dollars for our students and programs.  Thank you for the unprecedented generosity shown on Vandal Giving Day.
