About the Foundation

The Roane County 4-H Foundation is a 501(C)3 Non-Profit Organization. Established in 1977 and governed by a Board of Directors that donates their time and expertise, the Foundation is an arm of the WVU Extension Service Roane County office. The Foundation acts upon recommendations from the WVU Extension Service Roane County office and their advisory groups to create and sustain positive youth development. 

The Foundation helps provide learning opportunities for Roane County 4-H youth. These opportunities include:

  • Educational programs
  • Project workshops and competitions
  • Camp experiences
  • Counselor training
  • Livestock and non-livestock events
  • Youth and adult leadership and citizenry skills education
  • Post-secondary education
  • Member and leader recognition

Research regarding positive youth development indicates that 4-H members are competent, confident, connected, character-driven, caring and contributors to their communities.  Because leaders aren’t born but are developed through experiences and guidance, 4-H is dedicated to helping grow leaders. And that’s where the Foundation needs your assistance.
