Delaware 4-H youth will experience hands-on learning opportunities as a result of Tractor Supply’s 2018 Paper Clover Campaign, a biannual fundraiser held in partnership with National 4-H Council.

Delaware Tractor Supply stores collectively raised $7,824 in 2018 through donations made with purchases in store and online.

Earlier in October, Delaware Tractor Supply customers participated in the Fall Paper Clover event by purchasing paper clovers — the emblem of 4-H — for a donation during checkout at stores nationwide or through purchases made online at TractorSupply.com. From Oct. 3 to Oct. 14, Delaware Tractor Supply stores raised $4,153. The Delaware funds raised are a portion of the more than $1 million nationwide grand total — marking the most successful fundraiser in Tractor Supply’s history. Combined with results from the Spring Paper Clover event held earlier this year, Delaware stores raised a total of $7,824.

Fundraising efforts from Tractor Supply’s Paper Clover event fund scholarships for numerous state-level 4-H programs nationwide, and every Delaware donation benefits Delaware youth. Scholarships are used for camps and leadership conferences, where attendees learn everything from animal care and woodworking to networking practices and civic responsibility.

The Fall Paper Clover event rounds out the ninth year of the campaign, which generated $1,999,661 in 2018. The company’s biannual fundraiser has collectively generated more than $14.9 million in essential funding to date.

The Paper Clover campaign will return to Delaware Tractor Supply stores next spring.
