The December donations have been matched, which means we have wrapped up our biggest year yet! In December 2017 we received online donations, check donations, proceeds from your fundraisers, proceeds from our free fundraising products, contributions from partners and more to conclude our 2:1 Matching Program. Through all of that generosity and hard work in December, we were able to add over $2 million to endowments. There were 414 shooting teams that benefited from December’s matching contribution. You can see the full list of those teams here. Overall, the 2017 2:1 Matching Program, funded by Larry and Brenda Potterfield, added $8,209,670 to endowments. That is huge! The growth of our endowments just leads to larger cash grants which is real money put in the hands of shooting teams every year, FOREVER. While the Matching Program has changed for 2018, donations are still matched. We encourage you to review the details on our Matching Program page and always contact us with questions.
In addition to our Matching Program, we remind you of the opportunity to use our website to receive donations for your shooting team. We know many teams don’t have the ability to have their own platform to receive online donations, so we offer that to every shooting team with MidwayUSA Foundation Team Endowment. Our new website offers a better search feature that allows your supporters to find your team page much easier and every page has a big, red ‘Donate Now’ button. It’s safe and secure, plus we’ll take care of the tax receipt for each of your team’s donors. We encourage you to share this with friends and family that want to be part of supporting your shooting team. Find your team here.You can download and share the full press release here.
