Kitscoty 4-H Beef Club and Eagle Hills Multiple 4-H Club in North Battleford are receiving some money through Farm Credit Canada.
Both clubs will be getting $500 each which the organization says will help support local activities and programs, cover event costs and support volunteers. Farm Credit Canada is providing $100,000 to 203 clubs across the country as part of an overall $250,000 commitment to 4-H Canada.
“By providing opportunities for young people to learn and grow, 4-H clubs across the country are preparing the next generation for success,” says Todd Klink, FCC executive vice-president and chief marketing officer. “FCC is proud to support these initiatives and the 4-H clubs that are helping develop our future leaders.”
Of the funding, a total of $28,500 went to clubs in Alberta and $15,500 in Saskatchewan. Another round of funding applications will open in August 2021.
