These carefully selected individuals provide their leadership through their generous gifts and participation in foundation campaign activities. Learn more about the Leadership 10.
Although contributions from July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2018 are included in campaign totals, The Campaign for Michigan 4-H’s Future public launch was Oct. 3, 2014, at the 4-H Town and Country Gala at the Downtown Market in Grand Rapids, Mich. Guests celebrated the initial campaign investments that help 4-H engage youth in relevant and interesting ways today, grow and diversify its volunteer base, and enhance program delivery to best serve the needs of Michigan’s young people well into the future. Recipients of the 4-H Emerald Awards were also honored at the gala.
