MidwayUSA Foundation’s April Online Giving Campaign Generates $236,000 for Youth Shooting Equipment!

Columbia, MO – The conclusion of April brought an excellent end to the MidwayUSA Foundation’s April Online Giving Drive (ODD). This month-long fundraising event encourages the community to support their local youth shooting team by donating online to the team’s MidwayUSA Foundation endowment. This recent ODD contributed more than $236,000 to youth shooting teams, making it the Foundation’s most successful giving campaign to date. More than 300 teams from across the United States received a qualifying online donation during this fundraising event, and the Foundation collectively awarded an additional $45,000 in prizes. The top five teams and fifteen teams randomly selected through a lottery received additional endowment funds. Check out the final tally and see all the winners by visiting the MidwayUSA Foundation blog for the latest news at midwayusafoundation.org/blog/.

Those funds donated to youth shooting teams in April will also be matched through the current MidwayUSA Foundation Matching Program. This year, donations to the Youth Shooting Team endowments are matched at a ratio of 1:1 to the dollar. The corresponding dollars are allocated the following month for each gift received. For example, if a team received a $100 donation in April, then the Foundation Matching Program will add an additional $100 this month (May), bringing the total contribution to the endowment to $200.

Each youth shooting team with a MidwayUSA Foundation endowment has a team page on the MidwayUSA Foundation website (midwayusafoundation.org/find-team-fund-team). These team pages provide general endowment details, team contact information, and a list of donors for that team. Most importantly, each unique page allows donors to donate directly to their favorite youth shooting team. Approximately 2,800 youth shooting teams across the country have a funded endowment and this online giving capability. 100% of the donation, as well as the game, benefits the team.
