FCS Financial pledged its support to Missouri’s youth through a commitment of $50,000 to Missouri 4-H.

Over the next five years, FCS Financial will provide $10,000 installments to Missouri 4-H Foundation for the Youth Futures Program; Hall of Fame; 4-H Clover; and livestock, equine and dairy judging. The partnership ensures the continued success of more than 220,000 young people who participate in 4-H clubs and special interest programs throughout the state.

“Missouri 4-H provides an outstanding opportunity for children to learn about leadership, agriculture and community service,” David Janish, FCS Financial CEO, says. “The programs we chose to support with our pledge align with FCS Financial’s values by offering life skills and education for future success as well as recognition for those who have volunteered with Missouri 4-H, shaping the next generation of rural leaders.”

Missouri 4-H creates environments that engage youth in fun, hands-on activities to help prepare them for college and their careers. Through the programs they discover strengths, expand their knowledge and improve their world in partnership with caring adult volunteers who help them grow into true leaders.

“FCS Financial’s pledge allows Missouri 4-H to provide a safe and supportive environment, where young people learn real-world skills that will prepare them for the challenges they face today and in the future,” Rachel Augustine, Missouri 4-H Foundation director, says. “Through partnerships with ag industry leaders such as FCS Financial, Missouri 4-H is able to continue its legacy of service.”
