St. Croix County Endowment Fund
How does the fund work?
The Endowment Fund is a depository of gifts and donations for the St. Croix County 4-H program. Only the interest earned will be used to fund educational programs to support the strengthening and expanding of the 4-H program in St. Croix County.
Once our goal of $25,000 has been reached in the fund, the interest earnings will be utilized to support programming for 4-H members.
The principle investment of the endowment fund will not be used for current operating expenses of the St. Croix County 4-H Leaders' Association.
