When Nancy Hegland was growing up, Minnesota 4-H was an important part of her life — and today, her three children participate. “It’s an organization that has brought me joy in my profession for 30 years,” says Hegland, youth development program leader at University of Minnesota Extension and a member of the systemwide Faculty Staff Campaign Advisory Committee.

Watch a short video of Hegland talking about why she and her husband give to several areas within 4-H, including youth leadership.
