The Winneshiek County Endowment Board would like to announce the state of a new fundraising campaign,"FUNds for 4-H" with a goal of bringing the Winneshiek County 4-H Endowment Fund balance to $50,000.

The fund was established in 2004 with the goal of having the interest income from this fund used for scholarships, camps, conferences and awards, as well as providing program materials for new and existing programs.
