4-H Alberta recognizes the tremendous impact sponsors have on 4-H's ability to deliver a quality product. In addition to financial support, many of our sponsors raise the community profile of 4-H by displaying and promoting the 4-H logo.

We rely on the support from the community, the dedication of our volunteers and the generosity of our financial partners to exist in a synergy whose end result is producing the leaders of tomorrow from the youth of today. Sponsorship plays an integral role inthe operation of the 4-H Alberta program. It is a key reason why our 4-H program effectively meets the needs of its members and adult volunteer leaders.
