Dear Hendricks County 4-H Families, Volunteers and Supporters:
Sending greetings from your Hendricks County 4-H & Agricultural Fair Association and hoping your families are doing well! Despite the difficult time all of us have experienced in 2020, there really does appear to be some positive outcomes to help our community begin 2021 on a good note.
We are pleased to inform you the Hendricks County 4-H & Agricultural Fair Association has been chosen to receive a COVID Response Phase 2 Matching Grant from the Hendricks County Community Foundation (HCCF)! This $20,000 relief fund is a matching grant opportunity for our non-profit organization to cover our operating costs and prepare for 2021.
In order to receive these much-needed funds, we are reaching out to our devoted Hendricks County 4-H families to help attain this $20,000 goal. As you have all experienced with your involvement in 4-H, the foundation of agriculture can truly formulate a young person’s character and allow the individual to grow into a positive, successful Hoosier. By giving any amount to this matching grant fund, you are assisting our Hendricks County 4-H Fair Association to continue to offer our annual event and year-round support of the grounds.
Contributions will offset the lost rental revenue of over $100,000 in 2020, allow the facility to continue to provide meeting space for 4-H clubs, workshops, and events at nominal costs, and continue to provide a 4-H Fair experience that does not require 4-Hers to pay to attend.
Any amount that is given will be matched by the HCCF and is tax deductible. Your donation will allow our non-profit organization to meet our mission, established in 1938:
Emphasize agriculture by hosting a 4-H Fair each year that provides education, competitions, and entertainment, while managing the facilities to enhance economic growth and increase community involvement at the complex.
Can we rely on your family to help keep our Hendricks County 4-H Fair Association strong and thriving after this most difficult year? If so, please complete the form and return with your contribution prior to December 1st.
Please feel free to contact me firstname.lastname@example.org at any time if you have any questions.
Brad Beeson, President Steven Patterson, Executive Director
