BRENTWOOD, Tenn.– Tractor Supply Company announced today that its annual Fall Paper Clover fundraiser has raised a total of $828,076 for the 4-H. The funds raised during the 12-day campaign will create opportunities for 4-H’ers across the U.S. to participate in educational programs and enriching leadership experiences, from camps to community projects. Paper Clover funds directly support 4-H, with 90 percent used to fund state-level scholarships. The Company matched any donation made on a Tractor Supply private label credit card, with no limit to the match, contributing $18,751 to the campaign.
“Tractor Supply is privileged to have completed another successful Fall Paper Clover campaign in support of 4-H,” said Christi Korzekwa, Senior Vice President, Marketing at Tractor Supply Company. “It is wonderful to see this outpouring of support from customers and Team Members, particularly during such a challenging year. Their dollars are providing valuable experiences to bright young women and men in our communities.”
Paper clovers, the 4-H emblem, were available for sale in Tractor Supply stores and online at TractorSupply.com from October 7-18, marking the eleventh year of the Paper Clover fundraiser benefitting 4-H. The funds support scholarships for camps and leadership experiences that feature programming in animal care, woodworking, government and networking practices. All money raised during the fundraiser is dedicated to scholarship funding for varying state-level 4-H programs, benefiting youth directly in the state it was collected.
“The Paper Clover campaign helps empower and create opportunities for 4-H’ers across the country to build the skills needed to handle life’s challenges, contribute to the world around them and ultimately develop into tomorrow’s leaders,” said Jennifer Sirangelo, president and CEO of National 4-H Council. “Thanks to our partnership with Tractor Supply Company, we are able to provide more youth with hands-on-learning opportunities – something that is vital to the development of their passions and interests.”
Through this partnership, Tractor Supply has raised more than $14.9 million for 4-H youth. For more information on the program, visit www.TractorSupply.com/4H.
