Columbia, MO - Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA, recently donated $157,348 to the MidwayUSA Foundation to benefit youth shooting sports. This donation stems from a matching program offered by the MidwayUSA Foundation and is further proof of their commitment to provide sustainable financial support to youth shooting sports teams across America.
As a result of the Potterfields’ generous commitment to a 1:1 matching program administered by the MidwayUSA Foundation, a donation match is made for all funds returned to Team Endowment Accounts that teams generate from MidwayUSA Foundation promotions. A donation match is also made for all private donations and private donors are given the opportunity to designate a specific shooting team to benefit 100% from their donation. In 2015 the Potterfields’ commitment to the MidwayUSA Foundation match program and youth shooting sports resulted in their donation of over 7 million dollars.
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% 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.
