Potterfields Donate Over $800,000 to Support Youth Shooting Sportsby MidwayUSA
Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA, recently donated $836,707 to the MidwayUSA Foundation to benefit youth shooting sports. Over half of the donation stems from the matching program administered by the MidwayUSA Foundation while the other portion benefits partner organizations that assist in supporting youth shooting sports.
The Potterfields have generously committed to a 1:1 matching program administered by the MidwayUSA Foundation through November, 2015. 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. Private donors are given the opportunity to designate a specific shooting team to benefit from their donation, which is then matched by the Potterfields. In 2014 the Potterfields’ commitment to the MidwayUSA Foundation match program resulted in the donation of over 4.6 million in matching 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.
