4-H Foundation of Alberta
June 7, 2020
Radicle and the 4-H Foundation of Alberta are excited to be working together with the ultimate goal of building strong communities.
4-H started in 1917 and works with both families and youth. They create a safe environment where kids can grow, learn and be part of a team. Since inception, 4-H has evolved into a dynamic program and has expanded beyond the rural area to urban. Today’s 4-H program gives kids and adults life-long skills such as co-operation, leadership, interpersonal relations, critical thinking, decision making, organization, public speaking and community service. Parents and children of all ages can participate in age-appropriate meetings and projects at the same time. For more information on the 4-H program, and to learn how to become a member, please visit www.4h.ab.ca.
Radicle recognizes the amazing work done by 4-H and is a strong supporter of their efforts. As a Silver Clover sponsor of 4-H Alberta, we’re helping give back to the communities across the province.
We hope Farmers and Landowners in our program recognize our commitment to 4-H Alberta and offer their support to the foundation through their carbon credits.
Please read our Frequently Asked Questions section below to learn more about the program and how you can get involved.

Q: I am NOT a current Farmer or Landowner in Radicle’s program, does my farm qualifies for this program?
A: If you’re a farmer in Alberta, you could qualify for carbon credits. Our program follows the regulations in the Conservation Cropping Protocol created by Alberta Environment. We are here to do the heavy lifting to bring your carbon credits to market. Visit our Conservation Cropping page to see if you qualify and complete the contact us form to have an agent in your area contact you.
Q: Am I required to donate?
A: As this is a voluntary program, you do not have to donate any % of your carbon credit monies.
Q: Is there a limit on the donation I can give?
A: There is no limit. You can donate any % of monies you choose. The 4-H Foundation of Alberta has a minimum donation amount of $20.00 to receive a charitable tax receipt.
Q: Is this a one-time donation or a recurring donation?
A: This is a one-time donation for the calendar year 2020. This means if you are in multiple sales through the 2020 year, you would donate the same % from each sale. For example, we have sales coming up in January, May and August. If you generate credits in each of those sales, the form you complete for the first sale would apply to all of the following sales, but only for the 2020 calendar year.
Q: When can I expect to receive my charitable tax receipt?
A: The 4-H Foundation will be issuing your charitable tax receipt, and they issue charitable tax receipts within 30 days of receiving the donation.
