Why do we do what we do?
Simple, because of the 4-H members and the impact the program has on their lives.


The Washington County 4-H Foundation believes in the lasting impact of

4-H on young lives. 

Our mission is to develop, steward and distribute financial resources for the use and benefit of 4-H and to otherwise support the mission and growth of 4-H members in Washington County, Arkansas.

Our foundation is made up of dedicated board members from all across Washington County, who are passionate about helping the youth in the 4-H program reach their full potential. For decades, the Washington County 4-H Foundation has helped make it possible for 4-H youth to represent our 4-H program at numerous state and national events, attend countless educational trainings and workshops as well as receive various scholarships and awards for their achievements in their 4-H project work. The Foundation is proud to support the Washington County 4-H program because we have seen first hand how it can have a positive impact on the lives of young people. From teaching leadership skills and community service to equipping youth with the mindsets and teamworking abilities they need to succeed in life, 4-H truly makes even the best of the young generation even better.
