Arizona 4-H Youth Foundation Vision:

The vision of the Arizona 4-H Youth Foundation is to be the premier fund development partner for the 4-H program in Arizona. The Foundation will secure the financial resources to sustain and grow 4-H in the State and will be the catalyst for innovative, emerging opportunities. The result will be that 4-H youth supported by the Foundation are prepared for a successful future.

Arizona 4-H Youth Foundation Mission:
The mission of the Arizona 4-H Youth Foundation is to provide advocacy, sustained funding support and increased opportunities for all 4-H youth and adult volunteers in the State of Arizona.

You can make a difference in the lives of Arizona's Youth
Responsibility is a key life skill a 4-H member acquires when they take the time to acknowledge donors who support them each year. Chino Valley Breakaway Latigos 4-H Club members help out at the Hacienda de los Milagros Burro Rescue. Mesa's Lehi 4-H Club in the east Phoenix area helped convince the city council to reverse a ban on livestock. 4-H Citizenship at its best!

The Arizona 4-H Youth Foundation was incorporated as a non-profit educational organization under 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Service Code in September, 1970, by a public spirited group of Arizona's civic and corporate leaders in cooperation with the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension, in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. The Foundation, while separate from the University, is sanctioned by the Board of Regents, University administration, the College of Agriculture & Life Sciences and Cooperative Extension.4-H is giving today's youth that extra edge for life success through hands-on, research-based educational programs and opportunities. Youth hold the future in their hands, but they need your support.
