Brentwood, Tennessee - Tractor Supply, in partnership with the National 4-H Council, recently announced the fundraising results of its fall 2014 Paper Clover Campaign.

Tractor Supply, the largest retail farm and ranch supply store chain in the United States, raised $763,283 during the 10-day national in-store fundraiser. With the more than $1.5 million raised during the 2014 spring and fall campaigns, Tractor Supply has now raised nearly $6.5 million for 4-H programs across the country through the Paper Clover campaigns in just over 4 years.

Shoppers at Tractor Supply and Del's Feed and Farm Supply stores had the opportunity to purchase paper clovers between October 9-18 for a $1 or more during checkout. Seventy percent of the funds raised benefit state and local 4-H youth development program activities, such as local camps and after-school programs, for 4-H youth in the communities where Tractor Supply and Del's stores are located. Thirty percent of the total funds are donated to the National 4-H Council to support its national 4-H initiatives.

"This fall's Paper Clover campaign was another huge success thanks to our dedicated customers," said Christi Korzekwa, vice president of marketing for Tractor Supply. "We exceeded our goal, and we couldn't have done this without them. These campaigns give us the opportunity to enhance our stores' communities and provide support to our valued partner in the National 4-H Council and its local programs."

"We're thrilled with the result of the fall Paper Clover Campaign," said Jennifer Sirangelo, president & CEO, National 4-H Council. "We are also excited about the continued partnership with Tractor Supply which provides resources to manage, strengthen and drive excitement of local community participation and support for 4-H programs across the U.S."

Tractor Supply and the National 4-H Council now look ahead to their spring Paper Clover Campaign set for April 23-May 3, 2015.
