The Georgia 4-H Foundation was chartered on November 17, 1948 to receive funds for the construction of the Rock Eagle 4-H Center. As the Rock Eagle project was completed, the Foundation continued to support the Georgia 4-H Program by providing scholarships, awards, and incentive trips for successful achievements of 4-H'ers in Georgia. As time passed, the Foundation began to develop endowments which today fund scholarships, salaries for camp counselors, and other important programs. The Foundation solicits gifts from 4-H alumni, friends, and businesses to fund annual projects and events which are not endowed.

The Foundation continues to support the four 4-H centers in the state which include Fortson 4-H Center in Hampton, Rock Eagle 4-H Center in Eatonton, Burton 4-H Center in Tybee Island,, and Wahsega 4-H Center in Dahlonega.
