Tractor Supply kicks off 4-H fundraiser

BRENTWOOD, Tenn. ? Tractor Supply Company is hosting its ninth year of Paper Clover, a fundraising campaign that provides millions of dollars in scholarships for 4-H youth in partnership with National 4-H Council.

Beginning Thursday and to April 22, Iowa Tractor Supply customers can participate in the Paper Clover fundraiser by purchasing a paper clover ? the emblem of 4-H ? for a donation during checkout at their local store or by making a purchase online at The funds raised will be awarded to Iowa 4-H youth as scholarships to attend camps and leadership conferences.

?Every Paper Clover donation directly contributes to the growth and development of 4-H youth,? said Christi Korzekwa, senior vice president of marketing at Tractor Supply Company.

Since its start in 2010, the partnership between Tractor Supply and 4-H has generated more than $13 million in essential funding. Last year the Paper Clover fundraiser, which takes place in the spring and fall, saw a record-breaking year with more than $1.8 million raised.
