BRENTWOOD, Tenn.– Tractor Supply Company(NASDAQ: TSCO), in partnership with National 4-H Council, is kicking off its 11th annual Spring Paper Clover campaign. April 28 through May 9, Tractor Supply customers and Team Members can purchase a Paper Clover during checkout at stores nationwide, online at TractorSupply.com or through the Tractor Supply app. All funds raised directly benefit 4-H youth, with 90 percent of donations supporting youth in the state in which it was collected.
“Tractor Supply has been a proud sponsor of 4-H since 2010, and the success of our Spring Paper Clover fundraiser is a testament to our customers’ and Team Members’ generosity and support for the organization,” said Christi Korzekwa, Tractor Supply’s Senior Vice President of Marketing. “4-H believes that young people learn by doing and hosts many formative activities for the next generation. With the donated funds remaining in the state in which they are raised, we can all help the young men and women in our communities have access to these invaluable experiences.”
The fundraiser provides millions of dollars in scholarships for 4-H youth to attend hands-on educational camps, conferences and other leadership programs across the country. The 2021 Spring Paper Clover campaign is all the more impactful and important as students need funding to return to extracurricular activities safely amid the pandemic.
“A 4-H experience, whether it be camp or another leadership activity, can equip a young person for success in school and career. And that investment in a young person can translate to economic health for entire communities,” said Jennifer Sirangelo, President and CEO, National 4-H Council. “Our continued partnership with Tractor Supply and the Paper Clover campaign helps to ensure that even more young people have the opportunity to learn important skills and build the confidence needed to thrive in life and career.”
After more than a decade, Tractor Supply and 4-H have raised nearly $15 million through the Paper Clover fundraiser. Last fall’s campaign raised nearly $900k, positively impacting more than 12,000 students. For more information on Paper Clover and Tractor Supply’s support of 4-H, visit TractorSupply.com/4h.
