This Year's Project: Building Improvements

About Our Organization

In 1955, a group of local volunteers formed “4-H Building, Inc.”, a non-profit corporation established in the State of Nebraska. They had a vision, to have a place for the local youth to show case their projects during the Gage County Fair, have a place to hold club events and for the community to have a nice place to hold gatherings as well. The metal building on the southwest side of Gage County Fairgrounds was built through generous donations from the community and has continued to be open for our local groups, youth and the community as a whole since 1959 because of the hard work of the amazing volunteers who serve on its board. Each year during the fair, the building is able to continue to open its doors and offer a place to cool off, look at the youth’s exhibits and eat some great fair food. This is only possible through building fees and our gracious donors. *4-H Building Inc. is the name of this non-profit organization. Our group is not affiliated with any 4-H club or Extension Office on a Federal, State, or local level, the University of Nebraska- Lincoln, or the Gage County Agricultural Society.

Current Project: Building Improvements

We have been working hard to improve this building for the community. We are run 100% by volunteers, 4-H youth, and their families. Rental fees that we receive help manage the month-to-month expenses, so it takes added donations to help improve the building. We have done a lot of great stuff inside the building over the last 4 years such as painting, repairing water damaged walls, new lighting, and repairs to the floor in the main room. We are working hard to raise the funds to finish up our roof and siding of the building to help keep the rain out! With these needed repairs, we hope to see a huge decrease in our monthly utilities. Please consider donating to help us keep this great community building open and available for all to use!

    Help us keep the rain out!

    The board has been working hard with different fundraisers though out the last year to put towards our new roof. We have made some great progress but have a ways to go. We have received estimants from different roofing companies around the area and they are all coming back with about the same quote and warranty time frames. We have high hopes to replace the roof by the 2022 fair! We are hoping to raise $15,000 this year during BigGiveGage. Without your support and generous donations we would not be able to continue to offer this building to our community.

    The board has been overseeing some renovations to the building this year, and we can’t wait for you to see them the next time you visit our building! But we are also in needing of your help to keep this well-known and well-loved Gage County building open for everyone to enjoy. It has come to our attention that the roof no longer can be repaired but must be replaced. We have received quotes from local roofing companies and are excited to start this journey.
