2023-2024 Kansas 4-H Program Fee Waivers

Submitted by Sarah E. Maass

The Kansas 4-H Program Fee is $15/ member.  Waivers are intended for those who need financial assistance.  We know there are Extension Units out there that have encouraged families to apply for a waiver no matter if it was because of a financial need or not.

It is important to note that when a waiver is granted to someone who may not have a financial need, it takes funding away from someone who has a need and away from other programmatic needs.

Waivers are sponsored by generous donors to the Kansas 4-H Foundation.

While waivers have always been reviewed and granted no matter the need identified, beginning the 2023-2024 4-H year, these requests will be reviewed with more scrutiny and be based on financial need and not just because.   

Any questions related to this can be addressed to Sarah Maass (semaass@k-state.edu).
