It’s super satisfying to know that you can help students learn important values when they participate in club projects.

How Your Spending Helps Local 4-H Clubs

Here’s how a percentage of your purchases trickle down to local 4-H counties and clubs.

  1. Groundswell issues a customized debit card to an individual nonprofit such as the California 4-H.
  2. We offer these cards to anyone who wants to support California 4-H.
  3. Then we add up all the total purchases of all the cards and GroundsWell delivers back to The California 4-H Foundation up to 1% of all those card purchases
  4. In turn the Foundation passes 100% down to each individual county on a pro rata basis. The more cards and spending a county has the more they make!

The Benefits of Charitable Giving

Most cardholders love the feeling of helping an organization they believe in, especially since it doesn’t involve spending more money. With a quick adjustment to how you access your cash, you can instantly become a philanthropist!

Use the California 4-H GroundSwell Visa Debit Card for online purchases, everyday expenses and automatic bill pay so that every dollar you spend benefits the organization.

We make it easy to fund your card. Simply go to the GroundSwell card site and set up a recurring deposit to cover the cost of your subscriptions, bills and daily expenses. You can securely set it and forget it and use the California 4-H GroundSwell Visa Debit Card as your card of record.
