Tractor Supply Launches Fall Paper Clover Campaign to Benefit 4-H
Paper Clover donations will support
experiential learning opportunities for thousands of 4-H kids and
Tractor Supply Company (NASDAQ: TSCO), in partnership with
National 4-H Council, announced today the kick-off of its fall
Paper Clover campaign. Since its inception in 2010, the biannual
fundraiser has generated more than $20 million dollars in
scholarships for 4-H youth. Donations from the campaign strengthen
educational programs and provide opportunities to help students
develop the skills necessary to take on proactive leadership roles
and pursue training in their desired fields.
From October 4-15, customers can purchase a paper clover at
checkout in stores nationwide or online at TractorSupply.com.
Ninety percent of all donations will directly support 4-H youth in
the state in which the donations were made, while the remaining 10
percent will support national 4-H programming.
"Having surpassed $1 million in contributions with the Spring
fundraiser, we are excited to build on the success," said Kimberley
Gardiner, chief marketing officer at Tractor Supply. "Each Paper
Clover fundraiser contributes significantly to our mission of
ensuring that as many young people as possible can access the
incredible resources offered by 4-H, including the opportunity to
attend a transformative 4-H summer camp in D.C. We continue to
witness firsthand the profound impact this fundraiser has on the
lives of children and teenagers, providing them with essential life
skills. We look forward to further expanding our outreach with the
upcoming fall campaign."
Paper Clover donations support students like David Banks, from
Texas 4-H, who was able to attend the National 4-H Conference in
Washington, D.C. in Spring 2019. While there, he participated in a
series of youth-led discussions, which gave him the chance to speak
with members of the House of Representatives on challenges facing
the agriculture industry.
Soren Hottensmith, from Ohio 4-H, used a portion of the funds
raised to attend 4-H Camp Canopy, which emphasizes education in
forestry and natural resources. He hopes to pursue a career in
forest resource management or a similar field.
“As a 4-H alum, I am incredibly proud to be launching Fall Paper
Clover during National 4-H Week,” said Jill Bramble, President and
CEO of National 4-H Council. “Tractor Supply was my go-to store
when my kids were in 4-H, and it is such an important asset in
rural and suburban communities. The Paper Clover campaign has
funded boundless opportunities for 4-H’ers to find their spark and
explore career paths.”
4‑H is America’s largest youth development organization,
empowering nearly six million young people with the skills to lead
for a lifetime. Its research-based programming includes activities
in the areas of health, science, agriculture and civic engagement,
and the guidance and life-long skills necessary to succeed in
college and career.
