The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) recently donated $162,200 to Team Endowment Accounts at the MidwayUSA Foundation. The donation will benefit 67 teams participating in the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) across 28 different states. Details on the teams benefiting from the donations can be found here.
The donations from SSSF to MidwayUSA Foundation Team Endowment Accounts are made possible by grants provided through the generosity of Larry and Brenda Potterfield. The SSSF provides SCTP and SASP member-teams the opportunity to earn MidwayUSA Foundation Team Endowment Account funds through placements in SSSF-sponsored competitions and by participating in SCTP and SASP fundraising activities benefiting local shooting sports communities.
The Team Endowment Account Program at the MidwayUSA Foundation gives a community the ability to financially support a competitive youth shooting sports program or financially assist in the start-up of a new youth shooting sports program. The team can then request a grant of up to 5% of their endowment account balance once each year, in either December or June, to pay for team expenses. There are no fees associated with a MidwayUSA Foundation Team Endowment Account.
