(UNDATED) - Tractor Supply Company, in partnership with National 4-H Council, recently announced the fundraising results of its Fall 2015 Paper Clover Campaign.

Tractor Supply Company, the largest retail farm and ranch supply store chain in the United States, raised an astounding $893,817 during the 11-day national in-store fundraiser. With the more than $1.8 million raised during the 2015 Spring and Fall campaigns, Tractor Supply has now raised nearly $8.3 million for 4-H programs across the country through the Paper Clover Campaigns in just over five years.

Shoppers at Tractor Supply Company and Del's Feed and Farm Supply stores had the opportunity to purchase paper clovers between October 7 - 18 for $1 or more during checkout. Seventy percent of the funds raised will benefit state and local 4-H youth development program activities, such as local camps and after-school programs, and grant scholarships for 4-H youth in the communities where Tractor Supply and Del's stores are located. The remaining thirty percent of the total funds will be donated to National 4-H Council to help connect more young people across America to high-quality 4-H youth development programs.

"This fall's Paper Clover Campaign was another huge success thanks to our dedicated customers and team members," said Christi Korzekwa, senior vice president of Marketing for Tractor Supply Company. "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 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 Company 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 Company and National 4-H Council now look ahead to their spring Paper Clover Campaign set for April 13 - April 24, 2016.
