Centennial Legacy Fundraising Campaign

Centennial Legacy Fundraising Campaign Launch - Press Release

Sept. 20th, 2017

Donate Today for 4-H Tomorrows!

 What is the Centennial Legacy Fundraising Campaign and Why is it Necessary?

 

The short answer is: "So we can do more to help 4-H'ers across PEI."

 

In recent years, dividends from the Trust's current investment portfolio have averaged less than $2,000 per year, yet requests for support from 4-H PEI clubs and districts have averaged a total of $5,000-$6,000 per year.  The Trust would like to provide more funding to more projects aimed at fulfilling the mandate of supporting "programs and services of benefit to the 4-H movement, its members and leaders, which are additional to those provided by the Prince Edward Island 4-H Council and current funding sources."

 

This campaign -- created to honour and celebrate the 100th Anniversary of 4-H on PEI -- is focused on substantially increasing the Trust's asset-base, resulting in greater dividends to support more projects aimed at enriching 4-H programming for many years to come.

  • PEI Mutual Insurance - a generous donation of $6,863 was received from PEI Mutual Insurance Company in July of 2016. This donation resulted from the proceeds of an investment the company had in The Farm Mutual Canadian Fixed Income and Equity Pooled Funds, an investment group comprised of Canadian farm mutual insurers. We are honoured that PEI Mutual chose the donation to be identified as the inaugural donation to the campaign.
