Planning your Endowment Grant Project:
The Endowment committee is interested in funding projects that involve a service learning component that goes beyond community service. What is the difference?
Community Service: Community service is volunteer work 4-H youth do in their communities. Examples may include participating in a food drive, picking up trash along a roadway, or singing at a nursing home. Community service involves 4-H members sharing their time or resources with others in the community.
Service Learning: A 4-H service-learning project is a “hands-on” experience that involves youth using their knowledge, skills, critical thinking and wise judgment to address a real need or opportunity in their community! This “learning by doing” approach involves youth in interacting directly with the project’s audience, leading to more meaningful experiences. With guidance from one or more 4-H volunteer leaders, 4-H members identify a need or opportunity, select and plan a project, set goals for their learning, take action to implement the project, reflect on how serving changed them and others, communicate their results, and celebrate their accomplishments.
These resources can help you plan a project with service learning components that meet the criteria to be eligible for an Endowment grant:
- 4-H Service Learning Standards and Best Practice Guide – This guide includes the seven components of a service learning project, as well as examples of strong service learning projects.
- Service Learning: Thinking Beyond Community Service – This resource is filled with worksheets and planning tips that you can use to plan your club’s service learning project.
Getting your Endowment Grant Display ready for the Fair:
What is expected of us if we are awarded a grant?
- Acknowledge the support of the Dane County 4-H Leaders Association Endowment in the publicity for the project.
- A presentation of the funded project must be ready for display during Dane County Fair the year following the awarded grant. Please specify “Booth – Department 32” when completing the Entry Form to display your project. Use pictures, posters, props, whatever tools will best show your club’s success with this project. Let the community see “wow, 4-H does that!” Be creative! Failure to present the display will result in your club not being eligible to receive this grant for two years.
- Return completed Accountability Statement, including documentation of expenses, as in cancelled checks, receipts, copies of invoices, to the Administration Office on the Dane County Fair Grounds (Alliant Energy Center, Exhibition Hall, 2nd floor) after your club has set up its display.
