 4-H Club Year End Reporting

Nebraska 4-H policy requires all 4-H clubs to submit an End of the Year Financial Report to account for the dollars received and expended in the name of 4-H.
Most 4-H clubs raise money to support club activities through the collection of dues or by holding specific fundraisers. Because 4-H is an educational organization authorized through the USDA, several procedures must be followed when working with a club treasury. The key point to remember is the ability to show and prove proper accountability of how club funds have been received and expended. 4-H money is public money and we are responsible for its appropriate use.  Year End Club Reports –“ Due February 15.
