Multi-year Pledge

Invest in the future with a multi-year donation

Multi-year pledges allow for more effective program planning and are an excellent way to ensure sustainability of 4-H programming. Pledges may be paid over a period of up to five years from the time of the commitment in annual, semiannual, or quarterly installments. We will work with you to develop a payment schedule. Payments may be in cash, with credit or debit cards, or wire or securities transfers. If you would like to make a multi-year pledge with your credit or debit card, please visit our online donation page.

Planned Gift 

Include 4-H in your estate

Leave a lasting legacy to California 4-H.  Making a planned gift — whether by including a bequest to 4-H in your will or by naming it as the beneficiary of a charitable remainder trust, life insurance policy, or retirement fund — provides essential support for the 4-H program in the future. Planned gifts can offer significant tax advantages and in some cases generate lifetime income for you or your chosen beneficiary. Please Contact Us for more information about planned giving and the many ways in which your gift can ensure the future of 4-H in California.

Gift of Securities

Discover additional ways to support 4-H

Your investments can be used to invest in California 4-H. Gifts of securities – stocks, bonds, or mutual funds – can be transferred the California 4-H Foundation. To notify us of a pending transaction or for more information about making a gift of securities, please Contact Us.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

Honor a special person or a significant event

A memorial gift can help perpetuate the values and ideals that guided someone’s life. Honorary gifts commemorate a significant event or someone who is still living. Families of those so honored will be notified of your gift; the amount, however, remains a private matter. If you are interested in making a memorial or honorary gift, please make sure to provide the appropriate information when you make or submit your gift. You can make an online donation here, designating the person in whose honor you would like to make the donation. For additional information regarding memorial or honorary gifts, Contact Us.

Matching Gifts

Match your gift through your company’s matching gift program.

Many companies will match their employees’ gifts to the California 4-H Foundation through their giving programs. You receive full credit for your matching gifts for the purposes of recognition and benefits. Check with your human resources department to find out whether your company has a matching gift policy. If it does, your employer will usually provide a form for you to fill out and send to us with your donation. We will verify your gift and return the form to your company, which will then issue a matching gift contribution directly to the Foundation. Find out if your company has a matching gift program here. If your company’s name does not appear on the list, it may still have a giving program – check with your H.R. Department find out your options.
