Staying true to their commitment to support the future of shooting sports, Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA, recently donated to the MidwayUSA Foundation. Their contribution of $180,736 will benefit teams and organizations that have an endowment account with the MidwayUSA Foundation. A portion of the funds are a direct result of the Foundation’s matching program, a program allowing donors to triple the money they donate to shooting teams of their choice. Every general donation is matched 2:1 by the Potterfields.
Along with matching funds, the contribution will benefit the winners of the Constituent Challenge, another team incentive offered by the MidwayUSA Foundation. This program rewards the teams that put the largest total dollars into their Team Endowment Account in a given month. Centerburg Youth Shooting Sports located in Centerburg, Ohio, received $15,000 for their first place win. The Murray State University Rifle Team out of Murray, Kentucky earned $10,000 for second place. Third place and $5,000 went to the Hastings High School Trap Team from Hastings, Minnesota. Both the Constituent Challenge and matching programs will continue through November 30, 2014.
The MidwayUSA Foundation is a public charity working to sustain the shooting sports industry by providing long-term funding to youth shooting teams. Each year, teams can apply for a grant for up to 5% of their account balance to use for expenses, such as range fees, travel, ammunition, uniforms and more.
