The CSU Weld County Extension Office is creating an endowed position to oversee the continued success and stability of Weld County 4-H. Our goal is to raise $2 million to place in an endowment for this position which will guarantee future 4-H programming for Weld County youth.

An investment in 4-H, and in this fundraising campaign, is an investment in today’s youth and tomorrow’s future. Help us continue to grow great Weld County leaders through our 4-H program by donating to this fund. Please read on to find important information about this endowed position including why it is needed, what the goals of the position are, how the funds used to finance the position will be managed and why your support is needed in this venture.

In honor of Jean and her dedication to 4-H, and with the support of the Hoshiko family, the Weld County 4-H Foundation renamed the endowed position the Jean Hoshiko Memorial Endowment in December 2013. It is a small demonstration of our admiration for her commitment to ensuring 4-H programs are preserved and made available to Weld County youth for generations to come.
