SAN ANTONIO, Texas -(Ammoland.com)- In 2016 the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation launched a campaign entitled, “VISION 20/20” with the goal to grow national participation in the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) to over 20,000 student athletes annually by the year 2020.
In partnership with industry partners, civic organizations, member teams and DONORS like you the SSSF will provide the opportunity and funding for more students to join existing shooting teams and create new teams where none exist today. By introducing more student athletes to the world of clay target and action shooting, we will also ensure the protection of the Second Amendment for generations to come!
Donors have the choice to support a local Scholastic Clay Target Program / Scholastic Action Shooting Program team and/or the national efforts of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation to start SCTP and SASP teams where none exist today. For a limited time, donations to your favorite team will be matched 4:1 and donations to the SSSF’s national efforts will be matched 2:1! All donations are tax deductible.
Donations directed to teams support local SCTP and SASP teams in two ways:
- Cash grants provided by Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation for the upcoming season.
- Growth of the team’s endowment account held at the MidwayUSA Foundation to support the team needs of the future, forever! Generous match funding is available to participating teams as well as a grand prize of $10,000 team endowment funds for the top fundraising team!
All SCTP and SASP teams are being invited to participate by engaging in team-centric fundraising activities in support of Vision 20/20.
Donations directed to the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation will be 100% dedicated to the SSSF’s operational endowment account to support the needs of the Foundation FOREVER! Generous match funding will be provided through the Vision 20/20 campaign to maximize all donations directed to the SSSF.
This years campaign runs through December 31, 2017 and donations can be made securely online or mailed to the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation headquarters using the provided form.

About Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation:
The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) is 501(c)(3) public charity responsible for all aspects of the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) across the United States. SCTP and SASP are youth development programs in which adult coaches and other volunteers use shooting sports to teach and to demonstrate sportsmanship, responsibility, honesty, ethics, integrity, teamwork, and other positive life skills. SCTP was developed as a program of the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) until the SSSF was created in 2007 to operate the SCTP. In 2012, SSSF created the SASP and became the managing foundation of both programs.
