The MidwayUSA Foundation wants youth interested in shooting sports to have the same opportunities as those in other sports.
The MidwayUSA Foundation was established in 2007 to provide sustainable funding to youth shooting sports teams across the nation. Founders, Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA, had a vision to offer the same opportunities to youth interested in shooting sports that those interested in more traditional team sports received. Shooting teams provide wonderful opportunities for students to make friends, to develop confidence, and learn discipline and leadership skills, just like other sports. However, most schools provide little or no funding for shooting teams.
With the generosity of the Potterfields, the MidwayUSA Foundation was created to help communities and organizations raise funds to support their youth shooting team. Today, the Foundation funds over 3,000 youth shooting teams and the endowment is growing every day. Donors can contribute to a specific shooting team and that donation is tax-deductible and 100% of their donation goes to that team's endowment account. Zero is taken out for operational expenses. Their donation is also matched, dollar for dollar! We are changing the future of youth shooting sports.
