About The MidwayUSA Foundation, Inc…
Scholastic Shooting Trust (SST) Fund is owned and controlled by the MidwayUSA Foundation, Inc., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, charitable organization established by Larry and Brenda Potterfield in 2007. The Potterfields began the Foundation as a result of their passion and interest in education for shooting, hunting, firearms safety and outdoor skills.
The SST Fund is an endowment to provide financial support for collegiate and high school shooting programs. The SST Fund, through its web site, gives alumni and other interested parties of universities, colleges and high schools the ability to financially support a school's competitive shooting program or financially assist in the start-up of a scholastic shooting program. Donations provide immediate grant potential for a school's shooting program(s) along with sustained funding from the investment earnings of the fund.
The Scholastic Shooting Trust Fund was created to raise money for shooting teams for high-schools, colleges, and universities all over America. Over 20,000 schools in total! You can make a tax deductible contribution indicating the school of your preference to receive the benefit of your gift.
Shooting teams of high-schools, colleges, and universities provide wonderful opportunities for students to make friends, to develop confidence, and learn discipline and leadership skills, just like other sports. However, most schools provide little or no funding for shooting teams, so it's up to us to help.
Your gift is tax deductible and will be invested with the earnings provided each year to the shooting teams. This allows your gift to provide permanent funding and truly change the future. Make a gift today specifying the school or schools of your preference to receive the benefits of your contribution. Your gift may support existing shooting programs or help new ones get started.
