All Teams Start At Zero

Categories: Blog, Fundraising

We recently talked to an Iowa team that has a zero balance in their MidwayUSA Foundation Endowment…well not for long!  They registered for the Winchester SX3, SKB 90TSS, Browning BL22, the Luepold Rangefinder, and 3 Browning Fixed Blade Knives and have big plans to grow their endowment to $30,000 by the June grant cycle! They do have some expenses today but they want to put $10,000 in their endowment, which will turn to $30,000 after the 2:1 match. That means a $1,500 grant check this year and every year after! Even though this team is just getting started they understand the importance of growing their MidwayUSA Foundation endowment.  The coach said,“Putting that money in our endowment and taking a grant…that’s money our team can get every year! It’s guaranteed.  Continuing to grow that balance will just increase our grant payout each year.”

Every team starts at zero and with the help of some great volunteers, our FREE fundraising items, driven team members, and a supportive community endowments can grow fast!  We want to encourage all teams to check out the items we have available and talk to those that help with your team about how you can use these items.  Contact other shooting teams around you and share ideas.  If you have more questions, do not hesitate to contact your MidwayUSA Foundation Program Manager.  You can email Jeff McClure [jhmcclure@midwayusafoundation.org].
