School Shooting Teams Double Up on Donations
Potterfield Family Announces Matching Gifts.
Columbia, MO – -(AmmoLand.com)- Competitive school shooting teams received a huge boost of support today when Larry and Brenda Potterfield announced they would match the first $1 Million in donations to school teams through the Scholastic Shooting Trust.
Any school receiving a donation in the Scholastic Shooting Trust Fund will have it matched dollar for dollar by the Potterfield family until the $1 Million goal is reached.
The Scholastic Shooting Trust has already provided grants to 26 teams this year and the number of teams receiving grants has the potential to increase substantially with this announcement.
“We want to support these teams and see the sport become stronger and competitive. This is just our way of helping to change the future of shooting sports.” Said Larry Potterfield, President of MidwayUSA Foundation, Inc.
The Scholastic Shooting Trust 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, the community, and other interested individuals and organizations, fund the grants through donations to the Scholastic Shooting Trust so that youths have a better opportunity to compete in the shooting sports. The Trust (www.scholasticshootingtrust.org) is a mission of the MidwayUSA Foundation, Inc. started by Larry and Brenda Potterfield in 2007 to support education in shooting sports, hunting, firearms safety and outdoor skills.
