Managing Your 4-H Club Finances

As a condition of being a part of 4-H, the Ohio State University Extension requires that all 4-H clubs, 4-H affiliates, federations, and councils maintain their own Tax Payer Identification Number (TIN, also known as EIN). Previous national 4-H group exemptions under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code will be extinguished. All 4-H clubs, 4-H affiliates, federations and councils that were part of a previous national 4-H group exemption must maintain their tax-exempt status through the University’s group exemption. Existing Stark County 4-H Clubs who have submitted their EIN number to the office have completed this requirement. New 4-H Clubs must secure their EIN number.

Each 4-H Club MUST submit an annual e-postcard report online to the IRS by May 15, annually  http://epostcard.form990.org/

Organization 4H Advisor MUST print off a record that you completed the report or if fails, you attempted to complete report.  Keep in your records in case needed.

Please direct any questions to David Crawford, 330-830-7700 ext. 115 or crawford.228@osu.edu.

This I Believe about 4-H Youth…

It’s not only what we know, but what we believe, that determines what we do.

  1. The 4-H members are more important than the project.
  2. 4-H is not trying to replace the home, the church, or the school – only supplement them.
  3. 4-H’ers should be their own best exhibits.
  4. No 4-H award is worth sacrificing the reputation of the 4-H member or volunteer.
  5. Competition is a natural human trait and should be recognized as such in 4-H club work. It should be given no more emphasis than other fundamentals in 4-H.
  6. Learning how to do the project is more important than the project itself.
  7. Many things are caught rather than taught.
  8. A blue ribbon 4-H member with a red ribbon pig is more desirable than a red ribbon member with a blue ribbon pig.
  9. That “learning by doing” is fundamental in any sound educational program and characteristic of the 4-H program.
  10. Generally speaking, there is more than one good way of doing most things.
  11. Every 4-H member needs to be noticed, to be important, to achieve and to be praised.
  12. Our job is to teach 4-H members how to think, not what to think.
