4-H Forward

As the country’s largest youth development organization — and the only one reaching kids in every community in West Virginia — 4-H is here to ensure all kids can reach their potential, no matter their circumstances. Our goal is to provide educational resources, social and emotional support, and a sense of belonging for 4-H’ers across West Virginia.

Gifts to the 4-H Forward Fund support the greatest needs of the WVU Extension Service 4-H and Youth Development program and provide support for education, camps, activities and initiatives across the state. Whether the need is for an investment to enhance educational programming or to handle unforeseen costs like PPE that would otherwise strain resources, these funds are flexible and immediately available, enabling the state director to provide them wherever they're needed most. Your support directly benefits all 55 counties and provides multiple state and national 4-H opportunities.

To make donations to a specific 4-H fund, please contact Molly Kestner at molly.kestner@mail.wvu.edu.
