Tractor Supply breaks record in fall Paper Clover fundraiser


Every year, Tractor Supply Co. hosts two separate fundraisers for the National 4-H Council. This year, the 2021 fall Paper Clover fundraiser raised a record-setting total of $1,311,670 for 4-H youth nationwide. 

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. For those unable to attend in-person events, 4-H also offers 4-H at HomeVirtual Camp and Camp in a Box. This year, the Tractor Supply Company Foundation donated an additional $250,000 to the 4-H Tech Changemakers program, a new opportunity empowering 4-H youth to take control of digital literacy and economic prosperity in their community.

“We are thrilled to celebrate this record-breaking fundraising year with our partner Tractor Supply,” said Jennifer Sirangelo, president and CEO, National 4-H Council, the non-profit partner to Cooperative Extension’s 4-H program. “It is truly inspiring to see communities across the country believe in the power of 4-H to create opportunities for youth to succeed and thrive. Thanks to the Paper Clover fundraiser and Tractor Supply, more 4-H youth will have that opportunity.”
