The MidwayUSA Foundation and Scholastic Shooting Trust, a public charity established by MidwayUSA founders Larry and Brenda Potterfield, has received a donation from The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) in the amount of $85,023, which funded 8 shooting teams, specifically 1 college team and 7 high school teams.
“RMEF has generously partnered with our Foundation as active participants in our “Adopt-A- Team” program,” says Dick Leeper, Executive Director of The MidwayUSA Foundation. “These conservation chapters are helping local high school and college shooting teams in their area build a permanent endowment to fund their shooting programs.”
The MidwayUSA Foundation works with shooting teams, conservation groups and the shooting industry to raise funds in support of high school and collegiate shooting programs. Each donation, such as the money received from The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, brings the SST another step closer to achieving sustainable support for youth shooting programs.
“Conservation chapters want to get involved in youth shooting education,” says Larry Potterfield, Founder and CEO, MidwayUSA. “Working together increases the likelihood of continued financial success for these teams, and the conservation chapter gets the opportunity to get even more involved with the kids.”
