Tractor Supply raises funds for 4H
Tractor Supply Company, the largest retail farm and ranch supply store chain in the United States, raised $788,000 during its 12-day national fundraiser for 4H, breaking the record for most monetary donations during the four-year collaboration. Tractor Supply has raised almost $4 million for 4-H programs across the country through Paper Clover Campaigns in just four years.
Shoppers at Tractor Supply Company purchased paper clovers between April 23 and May 4 for $1 or more during checkout. Seventy percent of the funds raised benefit state and local 4-H youth development program activities, such as local camps and after-school programs, and granted scholarships for 4-H youth in the communities where Tractor Supply stores are located. Thirty percent of the total funds are donated to National 4-H Council to help connect more young people across America to high-quality 4-H youth development programs.
