Tractor Supply Company – Paper Clover Fundraising Event – Spring
April 26 - May 7
What is the 4-H Tractor Supply Company (TSC) Partnership?
Twice annually, once in the spring and again each fall, TSC runs the Paper Clover promotion to raise funds for 4-H. During Paper Clover, TSC shoppers are asked at-register to contribute $1 or more to support 4-H. The spring promotion will be held April 26 – May 7, 2017. 70% of funds go to state and county 4-H programs (60-65% to county depending on your state’s 4-H structure) and 30% to National 4-H Council. The more you get involved, the more funds you will raise!
How much has the TSC Partnership raised to-date and what are the funds raised used for?
Since inception of the partnership in 2010, TSC has raised or contributed $8.9 million to 4-H. Paper Clover Promotions have raised over $7 million of this total. County and state 4-H programs have used funds to support club activities and supplies, transportation to 4-H events, awards, scholarships, and other 4-H-related activities to be determined at their discretion. Nationally, funds have underwritten the cost to implement the program and national 4-H programming.
Do counties or clubs need to do anything to participate in this partnership?
Yes! We strongly encourage counties to participate in Paper Clover. Stores that have participation from 4-H raise an average of 40% more revenue. Here is how you can participate:
- Promote Paper Clover on your social media channels
- Set up a display table at your local store during the promotion
- Get your 4-H’ers in-store during Paper Clover – by far the most effective way to increase your earnings!
