BRENTWOOD, Tenn.– Tractor Supply Company(NASDAQ: TSCO), the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the United States, today announced its 2021 Fall Paper Clover campaign raised a record-setting total of $1,311,670 for 4-H youth nationwide. For the second year in a row, the Company matched any donation made on a TSC Personal Credit Card, with no limit to the match, resulting in an incremental donation of $45,812. Program contributions support 4-H members’ participation in camps, educational programs and leadership experiences. All Paper Clover proceeds directly support 4-H youth in the state in which it was collected.
“With every Paper Clover fundraiser, it is so heartwarming to see how invested our communities are in supporting young people and their ability to participate in 4-H’s invaluable learning experiences,” said Christi Korzekwa, Senior Vice President, Marketing at Tractor Supply. “This year’s fall campaign generated unsurpassed, impressive results that will go a long way in the development of empowered, confident and compassionate youth in our communities.”
In 11 years of partnership, Tractor Supply has raised more than $17 million for 4-H youth through the Paper Clover fundraiser, impacting more than 120,000 students. The funds support scholarships for camps and leadership experiences for 4-H youth across the country.
