Earlier this month, Montana Tractor Supply customers participated in Paper Clover by purchasing paper clovers—the emblem of 4-H—for a monetary donation of their choice at checkout in stores and online. The spring initiative raised more than $956,000 through customer donations. Awarded as scholarships to 4-H camps and other leadership events, every Montana donation benefits Montana youth.
“Since the beginning of Paper Clover, we have seen the fundraiser grow each year,” said Jessica Holmes, store marketing manager at Tractor Supply Company. “To have the opportunity to directly play a role in the development of 4-H youth is the reason why we work so hard to support this mission.”
2018 marks the ninth consecutive year of Tractor Supply’s Paper Clover campaign. The company’s biannual fundraiser has collectively generated more than $13.9 million in essential funding over its history, due in large part to the commitment and in-store participation of local 4-H groups.
“To see just how much Tractor Supply communities support 4-H and their local youth is incredible,” said Jennifer Sirangelo, president
The Paper Clover campaign will return to Montana Tractor Supply stores this fall, from Oct. 3 to Oct. 14. Identical to the spring, customers can participate in the 2018 Fall Paper Clover campaign by purchasing paper clovers during checkout in stores and online at www.TractorSupply.com.
