The Patuxent River 4-H Center Foundation, a non-profit, tax exempt 501(3) (c) organization in Upper Marlboro, MD.

Patuxent River 4H Center Foundation was founded in 1966. Our mission is to provide educational opportunities and programs for children with a focus on environmental conservation, natural resources, and farming.


We rely heavily on the generosity of donors and volunteers like you to continue our mission and make a positive impact on the lives of children in our community. Your donation will directly support our programs, help maintain and improve our facilities, (many in urgent repair) and provide necessary supplies for educational activities.


Through our outdoor education programs and summer camps, we aim to inspire and empower young minds, instilling leadership and problem-solving skills, and fostering lifelong friendships. Our goal is to encourage children to connect with nature, cultivate a love for the outdoors, and become passionate advocates for our planet's future.


Your donation, no matter the size, will make a difference and is greatly appreciated. We understand that these are challenging times, but if you are able, we ask for your support. Not only will your donation benefit the current and future generation of youth, but it will also have a lasting impact on the future of our programs and the future of Patuxent River 4H Center.


If you would like to make a donation, please click on the "donate" button or send a check to PO Box 342 Davidsonville, MD 21035. We also welcome volunteers and would love to have you join us in our mission. Please fill out the volunteer form below.


Additionally, we are open to sponsorships and partnerships. If you are interested in sponsoring an activity or partnering with us, please email Together, we can make a positive difference.



Thank you for your consideration and support.
