Grant Description
Grants of up to $10,000 to Ohio teachers from eligible youth organizations to benefit youth and improve volunteer training. Funding is intended for career and workforce development, volunteer retention, and the recruitment of new volunteers. The purpose of the program is to improve the applicant's ability to provide hands-on learning experiences that impact local youth. Grants may only be requested by 4-H educators.

The Ohio 4-H Foundation Grants Program provides 4-H professionals with much-needed support in building the capacity for positive youth development programming, and training and recognizing volunteers that are essential to delivering those programs. In most cases, the Foundation is a partner, rather than the sole source of funds. Investments are made where the strategic use of resources is most in evidence and where the largest number of 4-H youth can be reached with the most meaningful and sustainable impact.

Although the Ohio 4-H Foundation is open to all requests each year, specific Ohio 4-H priorities will be chosen annually. For the 2024 grant cycle, the following categories will be given priority: career awareness and workforce preparation, retention of current volunteers and older teens, and recruitment of 1st generation 4-H'ers and 4-H alumni as volunteers. 


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Grants may only be requested by 4-H educators.

The Foundation does not accept 4-H club grants.
