Special Purpose Programs

MidwayUSA Foundation’s Special Purpose Programs are an expansion of Larry & Brenda Potterfield’s enduring philanthropy in support of youth shooting sports. Click on any of the programs to learn more about them.

Coach Training Endowment

This endowment will provide competitive coach training grants to MidwayUSA Foundation Agency and Donor-Designated Endowment holders. The intent of the Coach Training Grant Program is to develop coaches that can assist youth shooters behind and on the firing line. Grant funds must be utilized to provide coaches with basic or advanced-level certifications. This can include skills training, shooting clinics, train-the-trainer, or other coach training.  This established endowment can receive donations.

Range Development Endowment 

As coaches are critical to youth shooting sports, so too is a place to shoot.  The Range Development Endowment is meant to help fill that need by encouraging existing ranges to allow for more youth-oriented shooting activities through improvements or expansions. This established endowment can receive donations.

Foundation Forever Endowment

We are able to allot 100% of each donation to the intended endowment because we fund our operating costs separately.  Donations to the Foundation Forever Endowment (FFE) go directly to funding future Foundation operating costs, from salaries to logistics.  The intent of the FFE is to fund the Foundation in perpetuity, just like the team endowments.  This established endowment can receive donations.

Matching Endowment

In addition to multiple incentive programs, the Foundation provides matching dollars to all independent donations as a major enticement for team and organizational endowment fundraising.  Our incentives and matching programs act as a force multiplier for donations and fundraising efforts and accelerates team and organizational endowment growth.  Like the FFE, this endowment ensures the Foundation’s matching program is here forever.  This established endowment can receive donations.

The MidwayUSA Foundation Board of Directors and Larry & Brenda Potterfield invite everyone interested in helping them grow these special-purpose programs to donate to one or more of the funds. Your generous donation(s) will help provide coach training and/or range facilities to youth shooting athletes, forever.  Together, we can change the future of youth shooting sports!
