Help North Dakota 4-H’ers find their spark on Giving Hearts Day Feb. 9

The North Dakota 4-H Foundation will participate in the annual Giving Hearts Day, set for Feb. 9.

On Feb. 9, the North Dakota 4-H Foundation will participate in Giving Hearts Day, a 24-hour online fundraising event for charities in North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota.

To support the North Dakota 4-H Foundation on or before Giving Hearts Day, go to https://app.givingheartsday.org/#/charity/27. Follow the 4-H Foundation on Facebook www.facebook.com/northdakota4h/ for updates.

Penny Dale, North Dakota 4-H Foundation manager, said the foundation’s goal is to raise $50,000 on Giving Hearts Day and that $20,250 already has been committed as matches. Match donors are:

  • Julie and Carl Peterson, Peterson Farms Seed, Harwood
  • Jeff and Leann Schafer, New Rockford
  • Greg and Lynae Lardy, West Fargo
  • Eric and Suzanne Lahlum, Marion
  • Jim Kirkeide Memorial Fund, Fessenden
  • Keith and Cathy Peltier, ProSeed, West Fargo
  • Julie and David Hassebroek, Cogswell
  • Landman’s Association of North Dakota
  • North Dakota Association of Extension 4-H Youth Workers
  • Alana and Todd Sears, Wheatland
  • Joy and Dale Patten, Watford City

The Dakota Medical Foundation, Impact Institute and Alex Stern Family Foundation partner yearly to help more than 300 charities raise financial support for programs and services in the region on Giving Hearts Day.

“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 Dale. “Your donation on Giving Hearts Day will help 4-H members across the entire state 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.”

The North Dakota 4-H Foundation works with the NDSU Extension Center for 4-H Youth Development 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.
