Who We Are
The 4-H Foundation of Sonoma County, a non-profit 501c(3) corporation, was established in 1982 to support, promote and enhance the 4-H program in Sonoma County. Through the Foundation, 4-H clubs and county-wide projects, activities and events can apply for grants to enhance and benefit their 4-H work. Scholarships are available for youth to attend education conferences throughout California and the United States to enrich their lives. The Foundation is also proud to offer educational scholarships to promising young men and women to attend college and trade schools.
In 1994 the 4-H Foundation built the Sonoma County 4-H Center for the 4-H youth program. Located in Rohnert Park, the Center is used for club and county events and activities, training events for adult leaders and members, outreach activities and general 4-H meeting space. The multi-purpose room is capable of accommodating 300 people with flexibility to divide the space into 2 medium-sized rooms or 4 small rooms. The building has a kitchen, office space, outdoor space for miscellaneous educational events and activities and adequate parking. The Foundation continues to operate and maintain this 4-H Center.
The Foundation is administered by a Board of Directors representing 4-H, finance, education, business and agriculture.
The directors are:
Camilla Gray / Nelson
Saralee McClelland Kunde
Executive Director: Susan Hansen
Office Asst: Amber Nunley
Admin Asst: Mikela Nunley
Center Facilities Asst: Ben Hampton
The board is committed to providing financial resources to enhance the 4-H youth program in Sonoma County. Donors can be assured that their contributions will be managed efficiently and distributed in a judicious manner.
THE SONOMA COUNTY 4-H program has provided quality “learn-by-doing” education to help young people develop life skills for over 75 years. Many of the county’s bankers, lawyers, business executives and civic leaders credit 4-H for their early training and leadership. Additionally, many Sonoma County farmers trace their agricultural beginnings to 4-H club work.
