As the first month of our Online Recurring Donation Drive is wrapping up, the MidwayUSA Foundation is encouraging teams to participate, and currently, your shooting team’s chances of winning additional endowment dollars are very high. If your team hasn’t received or grown its recurring donor base yet, there is still time. Get started today. Gaining recurring donors is important for your youth shooting team’s future. If you have regular supporters begin by talking to them about a recurring gift. A recurring gift can be set up right through our online donation form. Donors choose to give monthly or quarterly and once their contribution is set up, we take care of the rest! And yes, their gift will be matched! Next, encourage the rest of your community by promoting your team and this Online Recurring donation Drive.
Each month, we will be updating you on the qualifying teams right here on our blog. Use that list to generate some competition between your team members, volunteers, and donors. As a reminder, we’ll award the top five performing teams. If your shooting team generates the most in online donation dollars, it will receive $5,000. The second-place team will receive $4,000, third place receives $3,000, fourth place receives $2,000, and fifth place team wins $1,000 in team endowment funds. In addition to rewarding the top five teams, we’ll draw ten teams, at random, to each win $1,000.
If your shooting team needs assistance in promoting recurring gifts or your endowment in general, there are now new tools for you to use. These tools can be found on the new Fundraising Resources page. This page currently includes a complete Fundraising Toolkit and a step by step video of the Online Donation Process. Again, there are over two months to go, good luck to your shooting team during the Online Recurring Donation Drive!
