Most Second Amendment enthusiasts agree: The most important thing we can do to preserve our heritage is to share it with the next generation. Towards that end, Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA, recently donated $836,707 to the MidwayUSA Foundation to benefit youth shooting sports. Donors have the ability to choose the shooting team that will benefit from their donation and Larry and Brenda Potterfield match that donation. The other portion of the donation benefits partner organizations that assist in supporting youth shooting sports.
Along with the matching program, the MidwayUSA Foundation offers its active teams promotional items to use as fundraisers. At this time, teams can register to receive a Winchester Model 70 Super Grade rifle to raise funds for their Team Endowment Account. They can also purchase the chance to win a Nearly Perfect Rifle Battery, a unique set of four rifles that will be given away at the end of this month. All of these programs help teams grow their Team Endowment Account.
The MidwayUSA Foundation is a public charity working to sustain the shooting sports industry by providing long-term funding to youth shooting teams. Shooting teams with a Team Endowment Account can draw 5 percent of their account balance each year to use for team expenses. The funds can be used for ammunition, uniforms, entry fees, travel costs and more.
