Established in 2003, the Ritchie County 4-H Endowment Fund provides support for the maintenance and upkeep of the 4-H facilities.

"Based on the Foundation's investment performance, the Ritchie County 4-H Board of Directors felt a long-term permanent support fund through the Foundation was an excellent fit for diversifying the 4-H's income, said Woody Ireland, President of the Ritchie Count 4-H Board of Directors at the time.
