4-H Fundraising


In an effort to support 4-H Scholarship and Trips, Rensselaer County 4-H Youth Development holds a variety of fundraising activities throughout the year. Here you can find out how to support Rensselaer County 4-H by participating in a fundraising activity.


Rensselaer County 4-H is excited to announce that it is partnering again this year with Save-Around to offer a Capital Region Coupon and Discount Book. This was a successful fundraiser for us last year, and we are looking for your help to make it even more successful this year. The books sell for $25, and have literally thousands of dollars worth of savings. With savings at restaurants to sporting goods stores, it only takes a couple of coupons to make the book pay for itself. 

Flower Power 

Just go to Flower Power fundraising to order your flowers using the link above, or go to the main page and select “Place Order” at the top of the page and enter Cornell Cooperative Extension in the search box. Place an order and let Flower Power do the rest. Flower bulbs will be shipped directly to customers. Rensselaer County 4-H will get 50% profit on every sale.

To ensure that everyone has a great gardening experience right from the start, Flower Power Fundraising offers only the finest, best-quality bulbs and plants available from growers in Holland and the U.S. They are so confident in the quality of their products that they offer an unconditional, 100% money-back guarantee.

Best of all, people all across the country can buy flower bulbs for Rensselaer County 4-H. Be sure to share the web site with your family and friends. You can start ordering flowers immediately. The sale runs to May 1st

Just like our other fundraisers, the money from Flower Power will support the Rensselaer County4-H Award Trip program, County Fair judges, State Fair participation and year-end recognition.
