2014 $50,000 CHALLENGE

Published: November 3, 2014

The Indiana 4‑H Foundation Board of Directors has partnered with Indiana Farm Bureau and the Estate of Barbara J. Faris to offer a $50,000 Challenge to those making contributions to the Indiana 4‑H Foundation!

Because of the huge success of our Matching Gift Challenge last fall, we are very excited to offer you the opportunity once again to double the impact of your gift. The Indiana 4‑H Foundation offers you an opportunity to get a maximum amount of satisfaction for a minimum investment.

What does that mean to you? Between now and the end of 2014 all unrestricted gifts to the Indiana 4‑H Foundation of $50 or more, up to $50,000, will be matched by a combined effort of the Indiana 4‑H Foundation Board of Directors, Indiana Farm Bureau and the estate of Barbara J. Faris. Your donation is doubled when you meet the challenge!

There are ever-increasing needs for funding and we count on the support of individuals and corporations to help us meet those needs. You can help us raise $100,000 by the end of the year. Your contribution to the Indiana 4‑H Foundation says that you believe this is the one place where a dollar does more net good than anywhere else. With a single monetary donation you support programs for over 200,000 4‑H youth in all 92 Indiana counties.

Donations are easy, simply go to www.in4h.org/donate-now to donate. Or you can make a donation by mail with a check or credit card to: Indiana 4‑H Foundation, 615 West State Street, West Lafayette, IN, 47907. You may also consider a recurring monthly donation. Monthly giving provides a steady and cost-effective source of income to the Indiana 4‑H Foundation. And because your monthly donation is processed automatically, you help us reduce our costs — which allows us to fund more programs.

Double the impact of your donation and help us hit our $100,000 goal. For more information, please contact Executive Director Liz Ellis at liz-ellis@purdue.edu or at 317-701-6837.
