4-H Facility Endowments
An endowment is a fund that is held permanently. The corpus of the fund is invested and held intact, and the earning from the fund are used to support 4-H programs.
Donors can make an investment that helps keep Kettunen Center or the Michigan 4-H Children’s Gardens in premium shape for Michigan 4-H Youth Development programming. Learn more about endowment basics.
- Kettunen Center is the foundation’s volunteer training facility in Tustin, Mich. Endowed support for the center helps maintain the grounds, wetlands and facilities that have made Kettunen Center the natural place for Michigan 4 H Youth Development programming.
- Endowments that support the Michigan 4-H Children’s Gardens on the campus of Michigan State University provide annual and long-term garden renewal and design and help keep the garden’s play and learning structures well-maintained for visitors’ enjoyment each year.
