Columbia, MO -(AmmoLand.com)- Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA, recently donated $1,261,623 to the MidwayUSA Foundation to benefit youth shooting sports.
This donation is further proof of their commitment to provide sustainable financial support to youth shooting sports teams across America.
“Brenda and I choose to invest in America’s youth because they’re the business leaders and visionaries of tomorrow,” said Larry Potterfield, Founder and CEO of MidwayUSA. “Sustainable financial support for youth shooting sports guarantees a way to help students make friends, develop confidence, and learn the discipline and leadership skills they’ll need in the future.”
In addition to donations like this one, the Potterfields have generously committed to a 1:1 matching program administered by the MidwayUSA Foundation. Throughout 2015, a donation match was made for all funds returned to Team Endowment Accounts that teams generated from MidwayUSA Foundation promotions. A donation match was also made for all private donations and those donors were given the opportunity to designate a specific shooting team to benefit 100% from their donation. In 2015, the Potterfields’ commitment to the MidwayUSA Foundation match program and youth shooting sports resulted in their donation of over 7 million dollars.
The MidwayUSA Foundation is a public charity working to sustain the shooting sports industry by providing long-term funding to youth shooting teams. Shooting teams with a Team Endowment Account can draw 5% of their account balance each year to use for team expenses. The funds can be used for ammunition, uniforms, entry fees, travel costs and more.
