$3.1 Million Paid to 746 Teams
This year MidwayUSA Foundation delivered $3.1 million to youth shooting teams across the country, the biggest cash grant cycle to date. And now the Foundation is preparing to hand out millions more…

This year 746 youth shooting teams across the U.S. have received annual cash grants from the Foundation totaling $3.1 million! This grant cycle had an average payout per team of $4,172, and the grants benefit approximately 32,000 youth shooters. Each shooting team’s grant is 5% of their MidwayUSA Foundation Team Endowment balance, so as a team’s endowment grows, so does its annual cash grant.
