Columbia, MO – The conclusion of April brought an excellent finish to MidwayUSA Foundation’s April Online Donation Drive (ODD). This month-long fundraiser encourages the community to support their local youth shooting team by donating online to the team’s MidwayUSA Foundation endowment. This recent ODD brought in over $236,000 for youth shooting teams, making it the Foundation’s most successful donation drive to date. Over 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 awards. The top five teams, and fifteen random teams selected through a drawing, were awarded additional endowment funds. Check out the final tally and see all the winners by visiting MidwayUSA Foundation’s Latest News Blog at midwayusafoundation.org/blog/.
Those funds donated to youth shooting teams in April will also be matched through the MidwayUSA Foundation’s current Matching Program. This year, donations to youth shooting team endowments are matched at a 1:1 per dollar ratio. Matching dollars are allocated the following month for each gift received. For example, if a team received a $100 donation in April, then the Foundation’s Matching Program will add an additional $100 this month (May), making the total contribution to the endowment $200.
