Scholastic Shooting Trust Foundation

Columbia, MO –-(Ammoland.com)- The MidwayUSA Foundation, Inc. and Scholastic Shooting Trust, a public charity established by MidwayUSA founders Larry and Brenda Potterfield, awards $260,000 in grants during their January 2013 grant cycle.

“This is the Foundation’s first grant this year since we offer school shooting teams their choice of receiving a grant in either January or July depending on their specific needs. This grant cycle we had 89 different high school or college teams ask for and awarded grants.” says Dick Leeper, Executive Director of The MidwayUSA Foundation, Inc.

“We continue to grow with almost 2500 active shooting teams of which we have been able to help provide endowment funding at some level to over 1100 of those teams” He continues, “Through the permanent endowments, these high school and college shooting teams are able to fund their shooting programs every year for as long as the team exists. It’s a positive way to build for their financial future.”

The MidwayUSA Foundation, Inc. was established to provide five percent of a team’s fund balance for the purpose of buying ammunition, paying range or competition fees, arranging for competition travel and other operating costs. Teams may apply for a grant once per year, either in January or July.

“Competitive shooting teams provide wonderful opportunities for students to make friends, develop confidence, and learn discipline and leadership skills. However, most schools provide little or no funding for shooting teams, so it’s up to us to help,” says Larry Potterfield, Founder and CEO, MidwayUSA. “Brenda and I are elated to see the tremendous growth of the MidwayUSA Foundation, Inc. and we are excited see these teams build their accounts.”
