4-H Acres: A Place to Belong (all year long!):

Phase III

We are entering our third year of the upgrade project and because of generous donations, we have leveraged funds from the Cayuga Ithaca Kiwanis Club and the Tompkins Charitable Gift Fund and other donors. We have also received the generosity of hundreds of hours of volunteer time to conduct 4-H Acres projects. The following work has been completed since last year:

  • The installation of new flooring throughout all of Kiwanis Hall
  • The installation of new flooring in the Pole Barn
  • A few basic upgrades to the electric in the Pole Barn
  • A new center tie rail in the Pole Barn (volunteer and youth project and paid for by a volunteer)
  • Installation of a new Arbor and plants (donation and volunteer and youth led project).
  • Installation of a student made fence near the arbor
  • Bridge repairs
  • Bowker bathroom Painting

Check out our video with pictures of these projects: https://youtu.be/0mw5yIaCkXg

BUT there are still a few key projects that need to be completed

and we need your help to do it.

With your support, we will:

  • Provide new lighting and much needed electrical upgrades in the Pole Barn (we have identified major safety issues with the current electrical system)
  • Install a new roof on Bowker Hall
  • Paint the inside and outside of several buildings
  • Improve pathways and outdoor lighting
  • Design and install new 4-H Acres sign

With your help, we can provide our kids and community members with facilities that support the highest quality non-formal educational opportunities.

We know you care about young people and believe that 4-H can help equip them with the skills and values they need to make a difference in today’s world, we are asking you to please join us in giving as generous a gift as you can to 4-H Youth Development in Tompkins County. Every dollar of your contribution will benefit young people right here in our community!

Please make a generous contribution towards our $20,000 goal

by December 15th!

to continue to transform 4-H Acres into

A Place to Belong (all year long!).
