Club chartering due by November 1st

It's that time of the year to renew your club’s chartering status! Clubs renewing their chartering process are granted authorization of the 4-H name and the 4-H clover emblem by the Secretary of Agriculture of the United States Department of Agriculture for educational and character building purposes.

  • Having an approved charter means the club has the privilege of identifying itself as a 4-H club or group using the 4-H club name and emblem (clover symbol).
  • The right to raise and collect funds in the name of 4-H.
  • Included on the U of M required annual information report filed with the Internal Revenue Service. The 990N tax return will be filed for your group.
  • Youth enrolled as members and adults as Minnesota 4-H Volunteers will have access to a variety of educational opportunities and resources as well as supplemental insurance.

We have new forms this year. We encourage you to start as early as possible to have time to elect officers, approve the club charter and complete the forms before the November 1st due date to our office at the address below. Remember that each youth club officer and adult volunteer listed needs to be actively enrolled for the new 4-H Year. (Choose one of the forms below to download.)

Please have these forms sent to Jan Logelin at 475 Coffey Hall, 1420 Eckles Ave., St. Paul, MN 55108. A fax option is also available:  612-624-6905

If you have any questions about the process, please contact Alneida Madrigal at or 612-624-7603.
