Columbia, MO – The MidwayUSA Foundation has wrapped up their June 2017 Team Endowment Program grant cycle and paid nearly $1.4 million to 492 youth shooting teams. All of the teams that benefit from this payout are part of the Team Endowment Program at the MidwayUSA Foundation and are eligible to draw a grant each year to use for shooting team expenses.
“Our team grant cycle plays a key role in achieving our mission and we are thrilled more teams continue to take advantage of our program. We are funding almost 100 more youth shooting teams this June than June of 2016 and we have high hopes that growth will continue,” said MidwayUSA Foundation Executive Director, Randy Moeller.
Teams with a balance in their Team Endowment are eligible to apply for a team grant once per year by completing the MidwayUSA Foundation grant application. Youth shooting teams can receive 5% of their endowment balance to use for team expenses, such as ammunition, travel, entry fees, uniforms, targets, and more. Right now, over 2,500 teams have a balance, totaling over $96 Million. The next deadline to apply for a team grant is December 15. Teams interested in their eligibility can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
