December Donations Have Received a Match
The shooting sports community came together and donated $331,874.61 to youth shooting team endowments last month! A special thank you to all the donors that supported their favorite shooting team in December. These contributions were matched at $0.48 per dollar. This match benefits 532 youth shooting teams. If your shooting team received a $50.00 donation, our Matching Program added an additional $24.00 to bring the total contribution to $74.00. Our Matching Program is one of the quickest and easiest ways youth shooting teams can grow their endowment. Over $3.4 million was matched throughout the year, with the average monthly match being $1.10 per dollar. Wow, that’s more than a 1:1 match! Like last year, we will continue to have $160,000 a month to match contributions to youth shooting teams in 2022.
We are grateful for the generosity of Larry and Brenda Potterfield, who fund our Matching Program. In addition, they cover the Foundation operating expenses, so 100% of every donation benefits the shooting team of your choice.

Participating organizations can conduct any fundraiser they want; however, we do encourage them to complete their fundraisers within 9 months of receiving the product(s). Funds raised benefit the team through their MidwayUSA Foundation Team Endowment and by giving them money for immediate expenses.
