The MidwayUSA Foundation and Scholastic Shooting Trust, a public charity established by MidwayUSA founders Larry and Brenda Potterfield, has received a donation from The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF) in the amount of $176,136 which funded 17 high school shooting teams.
“RMEF has generously partnered with our Foundation as active participants in our “Adopt-A-Team” program,” says Dick Leeper, Executive Director of The MidwayUSA Foundation. “These conservation chapters are helping local high school and college shooting teams in their area build a permanent endowment to fund their shooting programs”
Each donation, such as the money received from The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, brings SST another step closer to achieving sustainable support for youth shooting programs.
“Conservation chapters want to get involved in youth shooting education,” says Larry Potterfield, Founder and CEO, MidwayUSA. “Working together increases the likelihood of continued financial success for these teams, and the conservation chapter gets the opportunity to get even more involved with the kids.”
