About the Oregon 4-H Foundation

Trustee Login

Incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1957, the Oregon 4-H Foundation is an associate of the Oregon State University Foundation, which manages funds donated to 4-H and provides other services.


Our mission is to advance Oregon 4-H through acquisition of resources and developing partnerships to expand outreach, and maximizing stewardship of resources, grants and awards.

Our Trustees

The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees, an Executive Committee, and seven standing committees. Our Trustees serve three-year terms that are renewable by mutual agreement between the individual Trustee and the Committee of Trustees and elected by the Board.

Similar to the OSU Foundation’s mission, the trustees seek to promote the value and importance of OSU, inspire investment from our generous community of donors and steward resources to enhance the university’s impact. They recognize that the university must be adequately financed to achieve its land grant mission of teaching, research and outreach, and that significant donor investment is critical to attain and maintain programs of excellence that have a meaningful impact on the future of OSU students, Oregon and beyond.
