Our 2018 Giving Tuesday has officially come to a close and we can’t thank you enough for making it a very successful day.  Throughout the day, online donations rolled in to our shooting team endowments and those donations totaled $84,346!  That is a an amazing day for the MidwayUSA Foundation and youth shooting sports. We surpassed our 2017 Giving Tuesday by nearly $10,000.  As we mentioned, Larry and Brenda Potterfield generously gave us $100,000 in matching funds for Giving Tuesday so we are adding a total of $184,346 to our youth shooting team endowments.  Every team that received a donation on Giving Tuesday will receive a portion of that $100,000 at a ratio of $1.185 on the dollar.  Here’s what that means.  If your youth shooting team received a $100 donation, we added an additional $118.50 for a total team endowment donation of $218.50!  That is impact and that is changing the future of youth shooting sports.  We are so grateful to the Potterfields for allowing us to offer this incredible opportunity to youth shooting teams in our program. Over 160 youth shooting teams participated in Giving Tuesday and the average donation was around $300.  Our youth shooting sports community donors are so generous.  If your team received a donation on Giving Tuesday be sure to thank your donors and keep working to grow your endowment, which will grow your annual cash grant payout.   We also want to add that our accounting department is finalizing their records so our website might not reflect your donations, just yet, but that will happen soon.  Thanks again for making our 2018 Giving Tuesday so successful.
