Giving Tuesday is November 29: It's the biggest giving day of the year, when our recent Thanksgiving holiday revels have reminded us of all we treasure. If you're an NRA Family, then chances are you treasure the future of the Second Amendment. As our readers know, investing in the next generation of hunters, shooters and conservationists is the best way to ensure our freedoms thrive for years to come. Today's the perfect day to make a tax-deductible donation, and to the youth of America with MidwayUSA Foundation. This year, they're shooting for $200,000 ... and so far, their marksmanship has been impeccable.
If you've never heard of the MidwayUSA Foundation, it's a top-rated charitable organization that allows you to donate with confidence. This year, the legendary retailer has set a goal to raise $200,000 for youth shooting sports. MidwayUSA Foundation will have $200,000 in matching funds to make your donation dollars go further. This Matching Program is made possible by Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA.
In addition to matching donations, donors have the freedom to choose the youth shooting team or organization to receive their gift and 100% of that donation will go to that program’s earmarked endowment. 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. Allowing donors to choose the program that will benefit from their contribution is also a way to keep the dollars in their local community.
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.
Every shooting team that receives a donation on Giving Tuesday will be entered to win $500 and top-earning teams will also be awarded. The top five teams of the day will earn additional endowment funds ($5,000/$4,000/$3,000/$2,000/$1,000). Donations must be made through the MidwayUSA Foundation website on November 29. Searching for a shooting team is easy and donations are safe and secure. An investment in youth shooting sports is an investment in the entire outdoor industry.
