The MidwayUSA Foundation recently distributed $1.7 million in cash grants to 521 youth shooting teams across the United States. These funds will assist the competitors in covering expenses that include ammunition, targets, travel, entry fees and team gear. According to information collected from the MidwayUSA Foundation, approximately 63,000 athletes will benefit from this grant cycle. 

“Youth shooting teams across the country are developing young men and women into well-rounded adults through the lessons of competition and character development, and I am thrilled the MidwayUSA Foundation is a part of it,” said MidwayUSA Foundation Executive Director Scott Reynolds. “These team grants, enabled by their endowment accounts, will allow these teams to continue to hone their skills and expand their teams with fewer funding worries. Now I’m looking forward to an even larger grant amount six months from now!”

Earlier this year $3.3 million went to teams that applied for their December grant. This latest grant cycle brings the 2019 total to more than $5 million in 2019. Additionally, in excess of 1,400 youth shooting teams have benefited from MidwayUSA Foundation team cash grants this year alone.

Youth shooting teams around the country can set up a free endowment account with the MidwayUSA Foundation. If you would like to know if your area youth shooting team has an endowment account with the MidwayUSA Foundation, or you want to make a tax-deductible donation to help grow a team’s endowment, visit the MidwayUSA Foundation website. Every team listed and can receive online donations. Those donations are also matched through the Foundation’s Matching Program.

The MidwayUSA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity working to sustain the shooting sports industry by providing long-term funding to youth shooting teams. Every donation made is tax-deductible and supports the mission to help communities and organizations raise funds to support their youth shooting team.
