Funding coming to Cowichan 4-H Club

The Cowichan 4-H Club is receiving a piece of $100,000 in funding from Farm Credit Canada.

 The mandate of 4-H Canada is to nurture responsible, caring, and contributing youth leaders committed to making positive change in their communities.

“By providing opportunities for young people to learn and grow, 4-H clubs across the country are preparing the next generation for success,” said Todd Klink, executive vice-president, and chief marketing officer at FCC. “FCC is proud to support these initiatives and the 4-H clubs that are helping develop our future leaders.”

The money comes from ‘The Club Fund’ and is part of FCC’s financial commitment to 4-H Canada, in the amount of $250,000. Along with helping local 4-H club activities through the FCC 4-H Club Fund, this contribution also aids provincial and national 4-H initiatives.

“For over a quarter of a century, FCC has been a committed partner, helping 4-H Canada empower young leaders at the grassroots level in communities across the country,” said 4-H Canada CEO, Shannon Benner. “The FCC 4-H Club Fund helps build capacity for 4-H clubs and leaders to create programming that focuses on delivering world-class positive youth development in order to engage responsible, caring, and contributing youth leaders who effect positive change within their communities and in the world around them.”
