Foundation Grants $20,000 for 4-H Goat Barn Improvements

The Fulton County Community Foundation awarded a $20,000 grant to the Fulton County 4-H Council for the fairground’s goat barn improvements. Funds will be used for critical upgrades within the goat barn including more durable stalls, exhaust fans for better ventilation, and an area for participants to groom their animals for show.

“We are thrilled about this grant—it’s a game-changer for our youth,” said Ben Reason, Fair Board Vice President. “Not only does it ensure a safer environment for our kids, spectators, and animals, but it also provides long-term cost savings by eliminating the need for frequent fence repairs. This investment will leave a lasting impact on our community and the future of this program.”

Over the years, the Foundation has awarded more than $161,000 in grants to Fulton County 4-H projects and endeavors.

“The Foundation appreciates organizations that work to provide the best experience possible for their members,” said Brian Johnson, Fulton County Community Foundation Director. “4-H provides youth the opportunity to learn a variety of life skills, and this grant will help provide a better, safer environment for learning.”

Grants like this one are made possible through Fulton County Community Funds, which currently have a $2-to-$1 donation matching initiative. Community Funds create a pool of flexible grant dollars available to charitable organizations that work to make our communities a better place for everyone.
