Areas of Focus

Tractor Supply is proud to be part of the "Out Here" lifestyle. Our mission to work hard, have fun, and make money supports our commitment to giving back to the communities we serve and making a difference.

To ensure we are helping the people we care most about - our customers and team members - we focus our corporate giving on four areas: Agriculture, Pets and Animals, Community, and Veterans Causes.

Agriculture

Tractor Supply was started to help serve people who live the rural lifestyle. In the beginning, Tractor Supply's mail-order catalog provided tractor parts to those who lived too far from an urban shopping area and those who did not want to pay premium prices. Today, we continue to serve the agriculture community by not only providing farming tools and equipment at everyday low prices but also by supporting nonprofit organizations that promote the agriculture and farming lifestyle.

In conjunction with our Sustainability Program, our 4-H and FFA national partnerships help us protect what we have while teaching the next generation of farmers to do the same. In addition to monetary donations, we support agriculture education by encouraging students in 4-H and FFA to connect with our local stores directly through display tables, in-store fundraisers, pumpkin carvings and more.

Beyond these national partnerships, Tractor Supply supports a variety of initiatives geared toward community gardens and ag education programs for students. Year after year, we continue to stick to our roots (quite literally) by sponsoring a variety of events from agriculture fairs to lawn and garden shows.

Pet & Animal

Pets and animals have always been near and dear to our heart and our customers'. In fact, the Pet and Animal division of Tractor Supply has grown to be the largest part of our business, so it's only natural that we would also support programs that promote livestock exhibits, pet shelters, pet adoptions, horse farms and more.

Since 2018, Tractor Supply has hosted its annual Out Here with Animals event in stores and online to recognize pets, animals and the people who love and care for them. The monthlong event features pet adoptions, pet treat tastings and special deals and giveaways and is intended to raise awareness regarding the importance or proper pet care and nutrition and provide access to and information about pet adoptions. In 2019, the event showcased a special partnership with Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation to host a pet supplies drive in support of local animal shelters nationwide. Tractor Supply also takes this opportunity to shine a spotlight on animal organizations through the “Rescue Your Rescue” social media contest. In this contest, customers can nominate and vote for their favorite shelters, and each year, we donate a total of $25,000 in grants to ten animal nonprofits that deserve a boost.

While Out Here with Animals highlights Tractor Supply's love and appreciation for pets and animals, our investment in the category can be seen through a variety of other initiatives, including:

Community

At Tractor Supply, the most popular sayings all begin with "whatever it takes." Our corporate culture encourages our team members to go above and beyond, to make a real difference with their customers and their local community.

We share more than the love of the rural lifestyle. We share the desire to preserve it and see it thrive.

This desire fuels our commitment. It's one thing every Tractor Supply team member has in common, and it's the thing that sets us apart from competitors. It's why so many Tractor Supply team members are active in their community, why they generate so many ideas for new events, partnerships and programs at the local store level. It's why we make such a difference, through so many organizations, in so many communities across the country.

As a company, we aid disaster relief by donating products and gift cards to help those who have been affected by tornadoes, hurricanes, fires and more. Beyond financial support, we are often at the forefront of pitching in and helping out. In some cases, we may be the only business that remains open to provide needed supplies in times of crisis. We've even stayed open 24 hours, serving as a hub for neighbors to support each other.

Veterans Causes

Recognizing that many of our customers and team members are veterans or active-duty military, Tractor Supply strives to show our support and gratitude through a variety of initiatives and in-store events. Since 2018, we have partnered with the Farmer Veteran Coalition (FVC) to help military veteran farmers grow their agriculture businesses. This past year on Armed Forces Day, Tractor Supply presented 50 veterans a $1,000 gift card each through the FVC’s Farmer Veteran Fellowship Fund, bringing the two-year total to $100,000 in give-a-ways to support agriculture operations run by veterans.

Additionally, we offer an in-store military discount of 15% twice a year to recognize military customers, veterans and their dependents. We also partner with Hiring Our Heroes to hire veterans and create a culture of meaningful employment.
