Columbia, MO – This year’s Global Day of Giving, Giving Tuesday, is on November 28 and it is the perfect day to invest in the next generation of shooters, hunters, and conservationists. MidwayUSA Foundation, a public charity funding youth shooting sports, invites you to donate on Giving Tuesday. With a goal to raise $300,000 in just one day, this is the largest day of the year for MidwayUSA Foundation. Donors that give to their favorite youth shooting team or organization through midwayusafoundation.org can expect their contribution to be matched and know that 100% of that donation will benefit the endowment of their choice because no portion of the donation is used to cover operating expenses, thanks to the generosity of Larry and Brenda Potterfield.
Every shooting team that receives a donation on Giving Tuesday will be entered to win $1,000 and top-earning teams will also be awarded. The top five teams of the day will earn additional endowment funds ($8,000/$7,000/$6,000/$5,000/$4,000). There are approximately 2,800 youth shooting teams funded by MidwayUSA Foundation and nearly 80 organizations, including SCTP, USAYESS, USA Shooting, and Houston Safari Club Foundation.
A MidwayUSA Foundation endowment provides an annual cash grant to cover the myriad of expenses that youth shooting programs incur. Covering the cost of ammunition, competition fees, targets, or travel can allow more young athletes the chance to participate in shooting sports. Often, shooting sports athletes become future hunters and conservationists too. Mark your calendar for November 28 and give to a youth shooting team or organization through MidwayUSA Foundation.
The MidwayUSA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity working to sustain and grow youth shooting sports by providing long-term funding to youth shooting teams. Every donation made is tax-deductible and allows the Foundation to assist in expanding and enhancing the leadership skills, confidence, and discipline of today’s youth through shooting sports activities. The Foundation supports all shooting disciplines.
