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.
This endowment will provide competitive coach training grants to MidwayUSA Foundation Agency and Donor-Designated Endowment holders. The grants will be utilized to create certified youth shooting coaches from currently uncertified individuals. The intent of the program is to transform these coach candidates into certified Level 1/Entry/Beginner coaches that can coach and assist youth shooters behind and on the firing line.
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.
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.
Donor Matching Fund
The Foundation provides matching dollars to all independent donations as a major incentive for team and organizational endowment fundraising. The matching program acts as a force multiplier for donations and fundraising efforts and accelerates team and organizational endowment growth. Major donors and sponsors can help fund our matching program to support all youth shooting teams across the nation. For more information or to contribute to our matching fund contact us at (877) 375-4570.
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!
