Every month we receive donations from partners across the country that help us achieve our mission to support and sustain youth shooting sports through funding shooting teams. Some of these partners are national partners, like the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation which gave over $830,000 this month, and others are partners at a state level and they support teams in their state. In August, donations from these groups totaled over $1.4 million. That’s over $1.4 million to 475 shooting team endowments. Some of the other donations include $223,000 from Iowa SCTP, $91,000 from Texas YESS, nearly $150,000 from YESS for Minnesota, and $23,000 from Pheasants Forever…a partner that understands how youth shooting sports can benefit the conservation and hunting industry too. These are just a handful that gave in August. You can review the full list of donations and team recipients here.
This collaboration is how your change the future of youth shooting sports! We appreciate what these partner organizations are doing for the sport! A lot of shooting teams have grown their Team Endowment with donations like these, in turn growing their annual cash grant payouts.
