WIN UP TO $15,000 IN ADDITIONAL ENDOWMENT FUNDS!

MidwayUSA Foundation Rockstars are youth shooting teams that work hard throughout the calendar year to raise money for their team. This money comes in the form of organized fundraisers or general donations. To award their hard work, the Foundation is awarding $50,000 cumulatively to top fundraising teams. The 1st place team receives $15,000, 2nd place receives $12,500, 3rd place receives $10,000, $7,500 for 4th, and $5,000 for 5th. Additionally, these top teams will earn fundraising patches to promote their hard work on and off the range. This is a new program, and the first set of patches will be provided in early 2021.

Teams can earn Gold, Silver, or Bronze patches, year after year. Bronze fundraising patches are awarded when teams raise $5,000 in the year. Silver is awarded after adding $15,000 to their endowment, and Gold patches are provided when a team raises $25,000 or more in one calendar year.

Once your team reaches a patch level, you will automatically earn the patch for that given year. There is not a limited number of teams receiving patches either, which means if every team raises more than $5,000 in a year, every team would receive patches. You can see an example of the patches in the graphic to the right!

All Team Endowments are eligible to participate in the Annual Rockstar event. The incentive will end on December 31, 2020, and winners will be announced in January 2021. To see the standings, which reflect the end of October, or to check out this incentive’s guidelines, click from the links below.

Fundraise on Giving Tuesday and Win Fundraising Patches!

Giving Tuesday, our biggest fundraising day of the year, falls on December 1st this year. This is a great opportunity for youth shooting teams to reach out to their community for a donation to their endowment. We have $175,000 set aside to match donations on Giving Tuesday, which means that each donation goes further. Additionally, we will also award teams that generate the most donations on December 1st. Shooting teams can take advantage of this great fundraising opportunity to grow their endowment and get them closer to earning 2020 fundraising patches. Learn more about what we are doing for Giving Tuesday by going to MidwayUSAFoundation.org/GivingTuesday.
