Since 2010, Tractor Supply has partnered with 4-H to create Opportunity4All and has raised more than $14 million through the paper clover campaign. Ninety percent of the funds raised through the Paper Clover campaign remain local and provide opportunities for youth to participate in camp and leadership programs. The remaining 10% supports the overall mission and growth of 4-H Nationally.
The Clover Campaign is a bi-annual event occurring in the Spring and Fall. Dates for the 2021 paper clover are April 28 – May 9 and October 6 – October 17. Traditionally, this week showcases youth project and leadership work; however, current conditions have not permitted such events. Plans are underway for the Fall campaign, where 4-Hers will gather and share their stories.
If you missed the Spring campaign or didn’t have a Tractor Supply in your area, you can still support your local 4-H program by visiting the Clemson University Cooperative Extension website and click on your county. Many 4-H programs have direct links on their web page.
To support youth in Colleton County or Hampton County, you can donate online or in person.
4-H is one of the country’s largest youth organizations empowering nearly six million youth with the skills to lead for a lifetime. In 4-H programs, youth experience hands-on projects in health, science, agriculture, civic engagement, and leadership in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors. Youth in 4-H are encouraged to become proactive leaders in their club, community, country, and world. If you would like to become a group mentor or member, reach out to your local 4-H agent and see how to get started on the journey of a lifetime.
