Review our Team Grant FAQs
All active teams with an endowment balance above zero are eligible to apply ONCE PER YEAR. Grant deadlines are June 15 and December 15. If you’re unsure as to whether or not your team has applied in the past or which cycle your team currently participates, please email email@example.com.
No, teams may choose which time of year TO APPLY but cannot apply more than ONCE per year.
Our mission is help fund youth shooting teams and receiving a cash grant does just that! While it is not required to apply for an annual cash grant, teams are strongly encouraged to apply.
Again, we offer two options a shooting team can choose to apply for a cash grant throughout the year, June 15 or December 15. Approximately 90 days prior to each deadline, we post our team grant application. This application is a fillable PDF and teams can email or mail it back to us upon completion. Once your grant application is submitted we communicate with your team about the approval and payment process. This must be done each year to receive your funds.
Teams must apply via the MidwayUSA Foundation grant application . Upon approval from our Board of Directors, team grant applicants will receive funds through direct deposit or by check, depending on their specification on the team grant application. We always encourage teams to use direct deposit (ACH), as it is quicker and more secure. Grant funds are often paid in August and February.
In order to provide sustainment funding for the life of your shooting team, it is important to cap the withdrawal at 5%. Our investment strategy is focused on long term growth that will provide earnings sufficient to pay 5% grants forever.
Yes. Grant funds may NOT be used to purchase firearms or for political lobbying. Also, because we fund shooting teams, grant funds may not be used to assist a single athlete.
Grant funds are directed to the applicant organization/organization entity/W9 name listed on the grant application. We highly recommend teams choose to have their grant funds directly deposited into the appropriately designated account tied to the applicant organization.
Team grant applications are reviewed by the MidwayUSA Foundation Board of Directors around August and January of each year. Teams requesting to have the funds direct deposited, which is highly recommended, will receive their funds almost immediately after the corresponding board meetings. Paper checks will be processed and mailed to teams soon after those meetings. Teams applying in June can plan to receive their funds in August and those applying in December can expect to receive funds in February.
