4-H Youth Development Program: Million Trees Project

Donate to 4-H Million Trees

Your tax deductible contribution to this project will make a big difference both for the youth supporting this project, and for the planet. Consider your contribution to be an offset to the carbon you personally add to the atmosphere in your daily life, which adds directly to the global warming problem. The 4-H Million Trees Project is under the San Mateo County 4-H Council, a tax exempt public charity under the U.S. tax code, and therefore your contributions are tax deductible for U.S. taxes.  Check with your tax advisor.

>>  BEST WAY TO DONATE:  You can donate directly to the 4-H Million Trees Project by giving through the California 4-H Foundation.  Go to:


Simply indicate that you wish your gift to go to San Mateo County and the 4-H Million Trees Project and 100% of your gift will go towards giving kids the life skills they need for their futures as they help slow global climate change.

>> ANOTHER GREAT WAY TO CONTRIBUTE: Please send your generous check, payable to the San Mateo County 4-H Council to:

4-H Million Tree Project
c/o San Mateo County 4-H Council
80 Stone Pine Rd., #100
Half Moon Bay, CA 94019

There are other ways to contribute, including purchasing trees and/or planting materials for your local 4-H club or unit. Please check your state/province or county 4-H website for links to clubs and units in your area.


Clubs generally self-fund this community service project.  For clubs that need help, 4HMT has recently raised some money and 4HMT is currently offering matching grants to help 4-H clubs with their tree planting events.  This means that if 4-H clubs and units that need support can raise some funds, 4HMT can match that amount to make the tree planting event happen!

Clubs can submit grant proposals, and if the project is approved and funded, they will have to provide 4HMT with a final report. Please see the Request for Proposal (RFP) for more information about eligibility, criteria, and the application. If you have any questions, or would like to discuss you ideas and needs, please contact us.
