We accept monetary donations through a variety of sources. 

Eaton County 4-H Endowment

Eaton County 4-H has a general county 4-H endowment fund established through the Michigan 4-H Foundation. Donations to the Eaton County 4-H program can be made to this fund, and will be used to support Eaton County 4-H programming as guided by the Eaton County 4-H Council.

CrowdPower Campaign

In the summer of 2021, MSU Extension announced the elimination of the $20 4-H Participation Fee that was charged to youth participants and families to participate in programming annually. A portion of the 4-H Participation Fee, approximately $2,500 annually, was used to support Eaton County 4-H programs and allowed us to offer many programs for free or at a reduced cost to families in our community. Your contribution will help close this new funding gap for our local community programs and allow us to continue offering a variety of Eaton County programming for the 2021-2022 4-H program year.
