Emmet County 4-H Membership Dues Decreased with Help from MaxYield

Morgan Matthews, Emmet County Youth Coordinator, accepts a contribution from MaxYield that will decrease the cost of 4-H membership in Emmet County. 

MaxYield Cooperative recently presented Emmet County Extension and Outreach with a contribution aimed at decreasing the cost of enrollment in 4-H youth programs.

“4-H has long been a key resource for youth development in our local communities, and clubs continue to offer high-quality educational programs. Making 4-H membership accessible to more families is important to MaxYield Cooperative. That’s why we contribute more than $13,000 to 4-H in seven northern Iowa counties annually,” said Chad Meyer, client relations/communications leader at MaxYield.

“We’re continuing our support of local 4-H and commitment to our youth,” said Meyer.  “Recently, we presented a contribution for $10 per 4-H member in Emmet County to decrease the cost of 4-H membership.”

MaxYield has two goals as it helps support 4-H. “First, we want to make 4-H an affordable youth program for local families, especially families that have multiple children enrolled,” Meyer said. “Second, by paying a portion of each 4-H member’s enrollment fee, we are able to continue our mission in supporting 4-H so that each member benefits.”
