Tractor Supply Co. is gearing up for its fall Paper Clover event, the semi-annual fundraising campaign that provides millions of dollars in scholarships for 4-H youth.
From Oct. 3 to Oct. 14, Tractor Supply customers can participate in the Paper Clover fundraiser by purchasing a paper clover — the signature emblem of the National 4-H Council — for a donation during checkout at stores nationwide or by making a purchase online at TractorSupply.com.
Since its start in 2010, the partnership between Tractor Supply and 4-H has generated more than $14 million in essential funding. This past spring’s initiative raised more than $956,000 alone, impacting more than 14,000 students.
Fundraising efforts from Tractor Supply’s Paper Clover event fund scholarships for numerous state level 4-H programs nationwide, and every donation benefits youth within the state it was collected. Scholarships are used for camps and leaderships conferences, where attendees learn everything from animal care and woodworking to networking practices and civic responsibility.
4-H clubs are encouraged to contact a Tractor Supply store to participate during the in-store fundraiser. Those who participate with their local store are eligible to win a $100 Tractor Supply gift card through the Paper Clover Participation Sweepstakes.
