MidwayUSA Foundation Sees Record Grant Cycle Giving Nearly a Half a Million Dollars
Checks totaling over $444,000 are in the mail to 163 shooting teams and clubs across the nation as the MidwayUSA Foundation wraps up its latest and most successful grant cycle to date.
“The number of teams that apply and receive grant money continues to grow. The team applications were double what we saw in January,” explains Dick Leeper, Executive Director of the MidwayUSA Foundation. “This growth is a result of our fund raising partners and proves that it can be done. Teams are taking advantage of their endowment dollars and that is resulting in more opportunities for young shooters and the future of the shooting sports industry. It’s exciting; it’s what we set out to do.”
Announcing the 2014 MidwayUSA Foundation Browning Silver Sporting Fundraiser
Although our very successful Family Legacy rifle/knife promotion continues, we have a new fundraising opportunity just around the corner for 2014! In January we will kick off our latest promotion which is comprised of a Browning Silver Sporting shotgun, currently available only as a prototype, and a fixed-blade Browning knife complete with the MidwayUSA logo on the hilt. Participating organizations have the option (while supplies last) of ordering just the shotgun or a combination package made up of the shotgun and 96 knives. The Foundation will offer a total of 100 of the guns-only packages and 200 of the combination packages. Once we've exhausted our supply of one option, only the remaining option will be available, so we encourage those interested to complete and return the Silver Sporting letter of intent to secure your packages now.
