MidwayUSA Foundation Will Offer 1:1 Potterfield Matching Funds in 2015

The MidwayUSA Foundation will continue to help communities and organizations raise funds to support youth shooting teams by offering another matching program in 2015. Beginning January 1, 2015, Larry and Brenda Potterfield will match all private donations 1:1. They will also match funds returned to the Team Endowment Accounts that teams generate from MidwayUSA Foundation promotions 1:1. In 2014, Larry and Brenda Potterfield donated over $4.6 million in matching funds.

“The generosity of Larry and Brenda helps us accomplish our mission and we hope by matching money that comes in, teams will continue to take initiative to grow their accounts,” said Dick Leeper, Executive Director of the MidwayUSA Foundation. “We want to encourage all teams to get their community involved. Local businesses, gun clubs and supporters of our teams will double their donation with our matching program.” The matching program will end November 30, 2015.

Through its Team Endowment Account Program, the MidwayUSA Foundation works to help communities and organizations raise funds to support their youth shooting teams. Currently, 2,800 shooting teams have an active Team Endowment Account with the MidwayUSA Foundation. Once per year, they can then apply to draw up to 5% of their account balance to use for team expenses, such as ammunition, range fees, targets, uniforms, travel, and more.
