About Us

Who we are

Since 1961 the Maine 4-H Foundation (formerly the Pine Tree State 4-H Foundation) has played an active role in supporting the University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H program. With your help it will continue to do so for many years into the future.

Maine 4-H Foundation staff & volunteers

The staff and volunteers of the Maine 4-H Foundation work very diligently to support the initiatives of the UMaine Extension 4-H Program.

Leading fundraising campaigns, offering advice to clubs on how to raise funds for their events, and providing leadership in different programming areas are just some of the commitments of our staff and volunteers.
