April team donations are matched! With the help of a very successful Online Donation Drive, the shooting sports community came together and donated $228,241 to shooting team endowments last month! A special Thank You to all the donors that supported their favorite shooting team in April. These contributions were matched at $0.87 per dollar. This match benefits 344 youth shooting Programs. Any shooting team in our program that received a donation last month also received matching funds. If your shooting team received a $50.00 donation, our Matching Program added an additional $43.50, to bring the total contribution to $93.50. Our Matching Program is one of the quickest and easiest ways to grow your team endowment. Every month, we have $160,000 in matching dollars and the ratio is adjusted at the conclusion of each month. However, in April and September, we have $200,000 in matching dollars to add more benefit to teams AND donors that participate in our Online Donation Drives. To see upcoming fundraising events, check out our online calendar!
