Tractor Supply Company has announced its fall 2020 Paper Clover fundraising campaign, marking the 10th year of the semi-annual event. The fundraiser is held in partnership with National 4-H Council to raise money for 4-H programming. All funds will directly support 4-H, with 90 percent used to fund state-level scholarships to 4-H camps and leadership experiences.
Tractor Supply customers and Team Members can purchase the signature 4-H Paper Clover emblem from October 7-18 directly at the store, as well as at checkout at TractorSupply.com or over the phone via Tractor Supply Customer Solutions.
“Tractor Supply is honored to host the 4-H Paper Clover fundraiser for the tenth consecutive year,” said Christi Korzekwa, Senior Vice President, Marketing at Tractor Supply. “This has become a signature campaign at our stores, bringing communities together to support future leaders. The 4-H organization’s inclusive and hands-on programs closely align with our company’s values, and we hope to make this fall’s fundraiser a record event for these children.”
In its decade-long partnership, Tractor Supply and 4-H have raised more than $14 million in scholarships and funding for 4-H programs across the country.
Each Paper Clover donation benefits youth within the state where it was collected, supporting scholarships to send 4-H members to 4-H camps or 4-H leadership experiences. In situations where camp is not possible, 4-H members are able to safely participate in 4-H at Home, Virtual Camp and Camp in a Box.
“We are grateful to Tractor Supply Company for its long-standing support of Cooperative Extension’s 4-H program,” said Jennifer Sirangelo, president and CEO, National 4-H Council. “Working together, we have helped to create opportunities for thousands of youth to pursue their passions and spark positive change for themselves and their communities. We look forward to another successful 4-H Paper Clover fundraiser to help even more youth develop the skills they need to succeed in life and career.”
