THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO GIVE TO CALIFORNIA 4-H

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 gifts can offer significant tax advantages and in some cases generate lifetime income for you or your chosen beneficiary.

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.
