Tractor Supply Company, in partnership with National 4-H Council, recently announced the record-breaking fundraising results of its spring 2016 Paper Clover Campaign.
Tractor Supply Company and Del's Feed and Farm Supply, the largest retail farm and ranch supply store chain in the United States, raised an astounding $935,351 during the 12-day national in-store fundraiser. Over the course of the seven-year partnership, Tractor Supply has raised more than $9.2 million for 4-H programs across the country through Paper Clover Campaigns in both the fall and spring season.
"This spring's Paper Clover Campaign was a huge success thanks to our dedicated customers," said Christi Korzekwa, senior vice president of marketing at Tractor Supply. "We couldn't have done it without them. These campaigns give us the opportunity to enhance our store's communities and provide support to our valued partner in National 4-H Council and its local programs."
Shoppers had the opportunity to purchase paper clovers for $1 or more during checkout. The effort has provided direct support for local camps, after-school programs and other activities, and has granted scholarships to these events so that youth can explore their interests in everything from animal science to robotics.
