About

The Duval County 4-H Foundation, established in 1973, was created to enhance existing 4-H programs and to initiate new and innovative programs in youth development.

Each year Duval County 4-H serves approximately 8500 local youth through school enrichment, traditional clubs, and summer camp programs. Students, clubs, leaders and volunteers utilize 4-H academic study materials and complete hands-on projects in subjects such as: horticulture, animal sciences, technology, public speaking & leadership, citizenship & volunteerism, health, nutrition and home economics.

Duval County 4-H Foundation raises funds to support these programs through individual and local business contributions, fundraisers and grants.

Mission

The Mission of the Duval County 4-H Foundation is to enlist the contributions of individuals and business to support the educational goals of the local 4-H program to help youth:

  • Develop personal decision-making, communication and leadership skills.

  • Learn and apply principles of science & technology.

  • Understand the importance of food and fiber and the relationship to the world markets.

  • Learn about issues affecting families and communities and become part of the solution. 

  • Forge partnerships between families, schools and businesses to create a network of caring adults to better serve the needs of rural and urban youth.

Birdies for Charity

Duval County 4-H Foundation is pleased to be participating in the 2014 PLAYERS Championship Birdies for Charity program. This unique community-based fundraising initiative is held in conjunction with THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass, May 5-11, 2014.

We encourage you to visit the PLAYERS Championship Website where you will have the opportunity to make a donation to 4-H AND to become eligible to win a fabulous grand prize! Upon making your donation, you will be asked to guess the total number of birdies that will be made during the competition rounds of the tournament. The individual who guesses the exact number of birdies made (or closet thereto) at the 2014 PLAYERS will win $5,000. In addition, the charity that the individual supports with their entry, will receive an additional $5,000 bonus. In the event of a tie, a tie-breaker question will be used to determine the winner. Deadline for all entries is Wednesday, May 7.

In 2013, 1,603 birdies were made during the four competition rounds. Funds generated through the Birdies for Charity program were part of the record $6.5 million generated by THE PLAYERS in 2012.

We hope you will take this opportunity to support 4-H and THE PLAYERS by visiting their website.
