Midwayusa Foundation Granted 501(C)(3) Status By The IRS
Foundation Full Speed Ahead to Support Scholastic Shooting Teams.
Columbia, Missouri – -(AmmoLand.com)- The MidwayUSA Foundation, parent of the Scholastic Shooting Trust, received 501(c)(3) status as a pubic charity and continues to expand its effort to fund competitive shooting at every high school, college and university. “We’ve kicked off the planning for our first fundraising banquet and pretty soon we anticipate that you’ll see these banquets across the country to support local school shooting teams.” Said Larry Potterfield, President of the MidwayUSA Foundation.
The Scholastic Shooting Trust (www.scholasticshootingtrust.org) was formed to provide funding for shooting sports education in traditional public and private high schools, colleges and universities, so that participating students can improve their confidence, discipline and leadership skills. Alumni, families of team members and community members fund the grants through donations to the Scholastic Shooting Trust so that youths have a better opportunity to compete in the shooting sports. Larry and Brenda Potterfield created the MidwayUSA Foundation, Inc. in 2007 to support education in shooting sports, hunting, firearms safety and outdoor skills.
