State sues former 4-H Foundation as fundraising partnership crumbles

A 54-year-old fundraising partnership benefiting 4-H in South Dakota has deteriorated into a lawsuit by state government against a private charity.

The South Dakota Board of Regents, the South Dakota State University Foundation and the state of South Dakota are suing the organization formerly known as the South Dakota 4-H Foundation.

The suit was filed Dec. 21 in state court in Hughes County. The state is asking the court to dissolve the 4-H Foundation (which changed its name last year to South Dakota Youth Heritage Inc.) and transfer the foundationís money to the SDSU Foundation, among other requests.

The state alleges that the 4-H Foundation violated laws, regulations and the foundation's own mission by funding and delivering programs independent of 4-H officials.
