This Giving Tuesday, Dec. 1, Santa Barbara County 4-H is inviting California 4-H supporters to double their donations in support of 4-H youth.
The organization is asking local businesses and individuals to donate in support of growing its “Forever 4-H” endowment, which will provide sustainable revenue to ensure the program can keep providing youth with skill sets for their futures.
A $25,000 gift from the Newhall Family Foundation brought the 4-H program halfway to its fundraising goal, and it will serve as a one to one match for all donors who make a gift on Giving Tuesday.
In addition, the California 4-H Foundation is participating with a $25,000 match offered to all 4-H programs throughout California.
Therefore, donors can triple their impact between the two match challenges.
