Giving Back to Ensure a Brighter Future
Investing in the future is an important part of Tractor Supply’s Stewardship Program. We are making investments today to improve the environment for future generations. The same values that drive our environmental sustainability efforts also drive our commitment to give back to the communities where our Team Members live and work. By supporting organizations that teach important skills and values to the young people in these communities, Tractor Supply is investing in the future in a different way.
Tractor Supply has long been a strong supporter of both 4-H and FFA. 4-H helps young people learn leadership and life skills through competitions and hands-on activities. One of the ways Tractor Supply supports 4-H is through the annual Paper Clover campaign to raise funds for the organization. These funds are used to provide scholarships for 4-H camps and leadership conferences and are directed to programs that benefit the 4-H clubs in our local communities.
FFA prepares future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing nation. Tractor Supply has been one of the longest and largest sponsors of FFA. The company has contributed and raised millions of dollars to support education and scholarship programs for FFA, enabling the organization to pursue interests in equine science, poultry production, landscape management and many other areas. This year, Tractor Supply launched a new FFA program, Grants for Growing. TSC stores and local FFA chapters partnered during FFA Week to raise funds through the sale of paper emblems. With the dollars raised through these fundraising efforts, FFA can fund a competitive grant process for agriculture projects that further or boost agricultural education programs or projects.
Tractor Supply’s commitment to give back to our communities goes beyond 4-H and FFA. In addition to United Way, we support a variety of organizations in our local communities. Stores around the country host local organizations to help them achieve their goals. Our Team Members give a helping hand to neighbors in need in a host of different ways and through a wide array of organizations. At Tractor Supply, we strive to be connected with the communities we serve. We view this commitment as an extension of our Mission and Values.
