Russell Co. 4-H Development Fund

The Russell County 4-H Development Fund is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization, whose mission is to secure funds from private and public sectors for support and enhancement of 4-H programs.  Donations, memorial and bequests to the 4-H Development Fund are appreciated and tax deductible. 

What have we done ... In 2001, the 4-H Development Fund awarded the first $500 4-H Youth Scholarship.  The organization has continued throughout the years to award 26 scholarships to outstanding Russell County 4-H'ers for a total of $22,250.  In addition, over $15,000 has been given to the Russell County 4-H Councils for activities since 1993.  Even with the new Midway Extension District #15 unification, the awarded Development Funds will remain with the Russell County 4-H youth.
