Tractor Supply’s Paper Clover Campaign reaches $20 million donation milestone for 4-H
In the spring 2023 campaign, the Tractor Supply Company's Paper Clover fundraising campaign reached the cumulative $20 million donation milestone.
In the midst of its spring 2023 campaign, the Tractor Supply Company (TSC) and National 4-H Council announced that the Paper Clover fundraising campaign reached the cumulative $20 million donation milestone.
“The success of this fundraising effort is a testament to our customers’ generosity. Their donations will profoundly impact our nation’s future leaders, enabling more young people to benefit from 4-H’s programming,” said Kimberley Gardiner, chief marketing officer. “We at Tractor Supply are honored to have been a part of this incredible effort and are excited to see its positive impact on communities across the country.”
Tractor Supply and 4-H started the bi-annual Paper Clover fundraiser in 2010 to raise money and awareness for local 4-H clubs. Ninety percent of campaign donations are used to support 4-H youth in the state where the donation is made, while the remaining 10 percent supports national 4-H programming. The Paper Clover contributions fund educational programs and provide all 4-H members with the opportunity to engage in enriching camps, conferences and community projects in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, agriculture, healthy living and civic engagement.
“We are so grateful for our longstanding partnership with Tractor Supply and the many opportunities provided for 4-H’ers across the country thanks to the Paper Clover campaign,” said Jennifer Sirangelo, president and CEO, National 4-H Council. “Together with Tractor Supply we celebrate this incredible milestone and look forward to providing even more hands-on learning experiences to help ignite a spark in young people.”
In total, the spring TSC Paper Clover campaign, which ran April 26–May 7, generated more than $1 million dollars for 4-H programs across the country. While final numbers are still being tabulated, Michigan had raised more than $41,500 as the fundraiser neared the final days of the campaign.
“Michigan sees tremendous support of the Paper Clover campaign every year,” said Julie Chapin, Michigan 4-H Foundation Resource Development Committee chair, director of MSU Extension’s children and youth programs and state 4-H leader. “These dollars allow counties across the state to provide youth with amazing experiences at the national, state and county level; experiences that might not be possible without the support provided by Paper Clover contributions.”
