The Wisconsin 4-H Foundation recently recognized partner AgCountry Farm Credit Services as a Platinum Clover Sponsor.
AgCountry contributed $10,000 to support the Area Animal Science program and sponsor the Youth for the Quality Care of Animals program. AgCountry Financial has been an ardent 4-H supporter for many years, even throughout the past year.
“The future of agriculture and our rural communities is in good hands thanks to the contributions of the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation,” said Marc Knisely, president and CEO of AgCountry Farm Credit Services. “It is our pleasure to support the wonderful work being done by the Foundation in providing young people with the opportunities and resources they need to make a difference.”
Brenda Scheider, executive director of the Wisconsin 4-H Foundation, said the organization is grateful for its partners’ support, including AgCountry.
“AgCountry helps 4‑H create cutting-edge, relevant programs for young people to learn real-world skills that will prepare them for the challenges of today and tomorrow, moving communities, the state, our country and the world forward in ways no other youth organization can,” she said. “We value our partners who help Wisconsin 4-H make a positive impact on our youth.”
4-H is one of the largest and oldest statewide youth organizations in Wisconsin, offering a wide variety of programs in both urban and rural settings. Nearly 150,000 youth participate in the Wisconsin 4-H program each year, and more than 22,000 volunteers support the program.
