How many of you know that Midway USA has a foundation set up to help fund shooting sports in high schools, colleges, and other youth shooting teams? Every year Larry and Brenda Potterfield donate “to fund the purchase of promotional items for teams and our partners to use as fundraisers to grow their endowment accounts. The type and quantity of available promotional items varies, but they are always provided at no cost. We make an effort to acquire as many unique items as possible in order to maximize their value to the public. Our promotions are not only a great way to grow your endowment account, but can also provide current operating cash as well. Teams and partners may participate in multiple fundraising promotions each year and may conduct fundraisers any way they choose within local, state, and federal guidelines.”
There are over 2880 teams that have already enrolled in the endowment program. Not only are the school shooting programs able to enroll, but many of the club teams, such as 4-H, Boy Scouts, FFA, or those affiliated with your local gun club, are eligible. For more information on getting your program started with Midway USA Foundation, go to http://www.midwayusafoundation.org/start-your-account. The endowment funds make the earnings provided each year to the shooting teams. This allows the endowment to provide permanent funding and truly change the future. Money is out there to help with the teams expenses. Currently there is a balance of $69,545,136 in the teams endowments. The average team endowment balance is $32,332. To date Midway USA Foundation has distributed over $6,766,472 to youth shooting sports
