Pledge Your Heart to 4-H on Giving Hearts Day

The North Dakota 4-H Foundation will participate in the annual Giving Hearts Day, set for Feb. 11.

On Feb. 11, the North Dakota 4-H Foundation will participate in the Dakota Medical Foundation’s annual Giving Hearts Day, a 24-hour online fundraising event for charities in North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota.

The North Dakota 4-H Foundation is a nonprofit organization that secures and manages financial resources to support and expand North Dakota’s 4-H programs and educational opportunities in areas such as healthful living, engineering and technology, animal and plant sciences, environmental and earth sciences, communication and leadership.

“Research continues to show us that youth who participate in 4-H do better in school, and are four times more likely to contribute to their communities and two times more likely to make more healthful choices,” says Penny Dale, North Dakota 4-H Foundation manager. “Your donation on Giving Hearts Day will help 4-H members across the entire state to build confidence, creativity and curiosity through hands-on learning opportunities. It’s an investment in our next generation of leaders, team builders and problem solvers, helping them to thrive today and in the future.”

This is one of the few large fundraisers that solicit donations to support numerous 4-H programs, including extended educational experiences at the state and national level.

To support the North Dakota 4-H Foundation on Giving Hearts Day, go to https://app.givingheartsday.org/#/charity/27.

The North Dakota 4-H Foundation aims to raise $32,000 to expand programs and generate more scholarship opportunities for youth.
