Archery Equipment- We need Genesis Original Bows (~$175). We are also looking for targets, youth finger tabs, finger gloves, arm guards, arrows, and monetary donations and gift cards to cover the above mentioned supplies and other needed gear.
We accept donations of any size, as well as in-kind donations. Donors will be recognized in newsletters, social media, our county website, and at archery events and meetings. All donations at or above $175 will be invited an archery meeting to meet the 4-H youth and will have their name or logo placed on a 4-H bow. If you are interested in making a donation, of any size, please contact 4-H Youth Development Agent Jennifer Scales, 843-730-5202 or JScales@Clemson.edu. All donations are tax deductible and will go towards supporting the local 4-H archery program. Again, we thank you for your support of our community and our youth. Give online.
4-H2O Exploring Lowcountry Waterways Day Camp- Support local youth learning about our Lowcountry waterways and career opportunities by sponsoring our 2018 4-H2O summer activities. Sponsors will have their logo placed on promotional materials, including camper shirts.
Help us reach our goal of $1,000 in camp sponsorships! Contact Jennifer Scales for information and updates.
STEM materials- We use Snap Circuits and Ozobots along with small indoor drones for our Technology in Action programs. We accept used equipment, as long as it still works! We also love any experts willing to help our robotics teams with advice and programs.
Funds for Club Support our 4-H clubs use community support to help send members to competitions, national, state, and regional workshops and events, camps, and so much more. Every dollar helps. You can donate to a specific club or to general club needs. A donation of $275 sends a 4-H teen to State 4-H Congress! $25 will send a Teen to the Healthy Lifestyles Trainings! $15 covers the cost of a youth in need to take part in a State 4-H Competition. Any donation helps.
Funds for School Programs- You can offset the cost of school program by making a donation to 4-H for project materials. We visit local schools in Charleston and Dorchester and conduct 4-H programs including embryology, poultry genetics, natural resources, ecology, STEM and more. To keep costs as low as possible, we rely on grants and community support to offset program costs. Every $15 helps cover the cost of a 4-H program in a local classroom!

Volunteer your time- we need leaders, guest speakers, mentors, judges, experts, and tour guides to help connect your 4-H youth with the community around them.
Donate Services or In-Kind items- every dollar we don't spend on a service, tour, facility, or item is money we can us to support our 4-H kids in other ways.
