Jean Castle recently gifted $5,000 to Beltrami County 4-H to be matched, to establish the first Beltrami County specific 4-H Endowment.

"4-H is more than a building or a county fair, it is groups of youth and adults cooperating to form mini communities where specialized learning takes place" said Castle.

The endowment will be administered by the Minnesota 4-H Foundation through the University of Minnesota. The Minnesota 4-H Foundation was established in 1960 to provide support for Minnesota's 4-H programs.

The Beltrami County 4-H Council is made up of 4-H youth and leaders from all 16 clubs in Beltrami County. This Beltrami County Specific Endowment will help sustain the longer term success of Beltrami County 4-H.

Contributions to match the initial funds will help secure the Endowment and a sustainable future. Donations are tax-deductible and can be made payable to MN 4-H Foundation for Beltrami County, 7223 Fairgrounds Road N.W., Bemidji MN 56601.

For more information about the Endowment, call 444-5722 or e-mail wardt001@umn.edu.
