We are excited to share that over 950 youth shooting teams have received their annual cash grant. The payout for this grant cycle totals over $3.4 million, out largest grant cycle to date. These funds are critical to every team, assisting with expenses like ammunition, targets, travel, entry fees, and team gear. A consistent theme to our team cash grant cycle is growth! Every cycle more teams are applying and we are sending more money out the door. Over the past five years, the youth shooting teams applying for our cash grants have increased by 45%. The cash grant amounts are also growing. The dollars paid to shooting teams have increased by 77%. As a reminder, we offer many ways to increase your next cash grant. Use a free fundraising product to conduct a community fundraiser or try our Peer-to-Peer platform and get your whole team helping.
Congratulations to all of our grant recipients. If your shooting team received a cash grant, we encourage you to share our press release with your local media or social media followers. Telling your community about your need for this grant just might generate some donations!
“These grants make a direct impact on our kid’s lives by directly paying for their expenses, allowing many to shoot and compete when they wouldn’t be able to otherwise,” stated MidwayUSA Foundation Executive Director, G. Scott Reynolds.
