Can you believe what those evil Potterfields, Larry and Brenda, have just done? They have actually donated a six-figure sum to their foundation to promote “youth shooting sports”.
Can you imagine that? Wanting kids to learn how to shoot safely, develop a life-long hobby, and be responsible? Why I bet those kids will even pull up their pants and turn their caps around. If I were Ladd Everitt or Josh Horwitz of CSGV, I would be horrified. As it is, all I can say to the Potterfields is …. thank you.
Potterfields Donate $184,000 to Support Youth Shooting Sports
COLUMBIA, MO – October 16, 2015 –
Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA, recently donated $184,045 to the MidwayUSA Foundation to benefit youth shooting sports. This donation stems from the matching program offered by the MidwayUSA Foundation. Donors have the ability to choose the shooting team that will benefit from their donation and Larry and Brenda Potterfield match that donation.
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 and private donors are given the opportunity to designate a specific shooting team to benefit 100% from their donation. 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.
