Tractor Supply—in partnership with National 4-H Council—announced that its annual Spring Paper Clover fundraiser raised a total of $718,852 benefitting 4-H communities across the country. 

During the 12-day fundraiser, Tractor Supply customers and Team Members donated by purchasing a paper clover emblem to support educational programs and enriching leadership experiences, from camps to community projects.

“Tractor Supply customers and Team Members appreciate the significant impact 4-H programs have on youth and their communities and are always eager to provide support,” said John Ordus, executive vice president, chief stores officer at Tractor Supply. “Our team shares the value of fostering the development and education of the next generation passionate about rural communities with National 4-H Council, and we are honored to continue this partnership.”

The Spring Paper Clover fundraiser took place in-store and online from April 28 – May 9. 

Tractor Supply will host the Fall Paper Clover fundraiser in October 2021, marking the 12th year of the bi-annual campaign benefitting 4-H youth nationwide. 

Each year, Paper Clover donations support scholarships for camps and leadership experiences focused on animal care, STEM, government and networking practices and community service activities.

“We are grateful to Tractor Supply Company for its years-long commitment to raising funds that directly support local 4-H programs nationwide,” said Jennifer Sirangelo, president and CEO, National 4-H Council. "Through the Paper Clover Campaign, thousands of rural youth will gain access to 4-H programs that provide the skills, mentorship and opportunities they need to fulfill their potential today and in the future."

All funds raised directly benefit 4-H youth, with 90% of donations supporting youth in the state in which it was collected. Since the fundraiser began in 2010, Tractor Supply has raised more than $15 million for 4-H youth through this partnership.
