Pioneer Hi-Bred, a DuPont business, has announced a $150,000 matching gift pledge to the Iowa 4-H Foundation to support youth programs. This contribution launches the Iowa 4-H Foundation’s President’s Campaign fundraising effort.
Bill Tomlinson, Iowa 4-H Foundation board president and Pioneer Hi-Bred production director, states, "4-H makes a positive impact on our communities and youth through programs that support agriculture, benefit youth and impact education. We are proud to support the 4-H programs across the state that help create the next generation of active citizens and community leaders.”
As part of the President’s Campaign, Pioneer will match contributions to the Iowa 4-H Foundation dollar for dollar up to $150,000 during Bill Tomlinson’s tenure as Iowa 4-H Foundation board president. His term runs through September 2010.
