MidwayUSA Foundation has teamed up with Battle Gear to provide a resource for teams to order custom team uniforms AND grow their team endowment. Battle Gear takes custom uniforms and gear to the next level. They have created custom templates just for our shooting teams. Choose from those templates or work with Battle Gear to create your own, unique design. Their apparel professionals communicate closely with coaches and team leaders to turn any idea or vision into a design that the whole team will enjoy. Get started with the link below!
adopt a team
Your shooting team can work with local conservation groups to raise funds for your endowment. We have a tremendous partnership with Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever (PF/QF) from the national headquarters on down to the local chapter volunteers in communities. Their Adopt a Club program works to partner your youth shooting team with local PF/QF chapters. We believe shooting sports often leads young shooters to hunt, and that’s important to our outdoor industry.
As an example, a local conservation chapter can invite your shooting team to work at their banquet or, sell raffle tickets to receive a portion of the proceeds to be donated to your MidwayUSA Foundation Team Endowment. The conservation chapter is able to structure the partnership how they choose, so it benefits their organization and the local shooting team. Many chapters use our FREE fundraising products too. Right now, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever, as well as Ducks Unlimited, have Adopt A Team programs but do not hesitate to contact other conservation chapters in your area and ask if they can assist your youth shooting team.
If your shooting team is ready to work with a local conservation chapter, search for a chapter near you with the links above or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started!
MidwayUSA Foundation Fundraising Toolkit
The Fundraising Toolkit is full of information that you can use to promote your shooting team. We know that funding your shooting team can be challenging at times, so we created this toolkit for you! The toolkit will help overcome some challenges, by increasing awareness in your community and by encouraging people to donate to your team’s endowment.
The packet contains documents and images that you can share with your community through social media, email or any other methods that work well for your specific team and supporters. It is essential to promote and increase your team’s endowment so that all teammates have the same opportunity to compete and learn. In conclusion, each dollar donated to your shooting team’s endowment supports your organization for the future and helps us reach the goal of ensuring teams will have forever funding. Pages in the toolkit include Online Donation Process, Logos and Social Media Images, Email Example, Press Release Example, Managing Perception, Additional Ideas & Tips, and a Printable Flyer!
