COLUMBIA, Miss. -(Ammoland.com)- The month of November was a successful one for youth shooting sports. The MidwayUSA Foundation has matched $629,770 in donations made to support youth shooting sports.
This match benefits all of the programs the MidwayUSA Foundation offers, including the Team Endowment Program, the Agency Endowment Program, and the Donor Designated Endowment Program.
The MidwayUSA Foundation Matching Program is made possible through generous donations from Larry and Brenda Potterfield.
They provide this critical funding because of their passion to support the growth and long term funding of youth shooting teams.
A matching contribution of $225,725 will benefit 173 youth shooting teams that received donations last month, including donations from a very successful Giving Tuesday. That one day resulted in nearly $30,000 in Team Endowment gifts.
November’s match also includes a large contribution of $400,000 to Houston Safari Club’s ACES Youth Education Donor Designated Endowment.
“Sustaining youth shooting sports is a group effort. Partners that have an agency or donor designated endowment with us see the power of our matching program and the opportunities that money can provide youth involved in the sport for years to come,” said Randy Moeller; MidwayUSA Foundation executive director.
Donors can take advantage of the matching program by finding the team of their choice on the MidwayUSA Foundation website and contributing to that team.
Those wanting to give to an organization’s agency or donor designated endowment should contact that organization.
The MidwayUSA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity working to sustain the shooting sports industry by providing long-term funding to youth shooting teams.
Every donation made is 100 percent tax deductible and supports the mission to help communities and organizations raise funds to support their youth shooting team.
