MidwayUSA Foundation provides a fantastic opportunity to create long term financial security for the youth shooting sports. Their program provides fundraising products for teams and youth programs. These items are raffled off and the proceeds used for team expenses and go to build their team endowment account.
There are are many youth and shooting teams in Arizona that are benefiting from this amazing program.

Thanks to the merchandise and matching money from the Potterfields, the Midway USA Foundation has given my team the opportunity to build a substantial team endowment. Our team is now at the point where we have the financial means to be able to attend our National competition every year. This greatly expands the value of our program to the athletes that participate on the team.

Absolutely amazing organization. Through the generosity of the Potterfield Group, Private donors and MidwayUSA Foundation's free fundraising items, our team has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to to support our youth development program shooting team. Our kids compete in the Scholastic Action Shooting Program and the Scholastic Clay Target Program Through SSSF and MidwayUSA Foundation also supports them. Our team would not be able to teach kids the safe and responsible handling of firearms and leadership skills we do without the support of MidwayUSA Foundation. Thank you MidwayUSA Foundation for all you do. They are a class act with awesome employees.

Our organization, the Wild Sheep Foundation, owes so much to the MidwayUSA Foundation. In 2011 the MidwayUSA Foundation helped us begin youth programing within our organization by setting up an endowment and finding funding the first year, of which we could draw 5% off of to create and execute our first Youth Wildlife Conservation Experience (YWCE) at our annual convention. Additionally, since then this endowment has grown to where it funds no only our YWCE each year, but partially funds our Shooting, Hunting and Ethics Education Program (S.H.E.E.P.) each year. It was the MidwayUSA Foundation that spearheaded our youth programing from the beginning and the only continued, year after year involvement regarding helping to fund our youth programs with the goal to excite and inspire the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts and wildlife conservationists. I have no doubt that without this organization the Wild Sheep Foundation would more than likely not have a national education program at all. The endowment process is spotless, easy to utilize, and provides a portion of the funding we use to execute our program each year, going on the 8th year now. In total, due to MidwayUSA Foundation, we have had a direct impact on 80,321 YOUTH since our endowment was established. I can't thank them enough.

The Midway USA Foundation has helped my Scholastic Clay Target Program team with funds to purchase ammunition and targets. Their help has provided me the ability to let the kids on the team practice more than they would have been able to otherwise, and include more kids in the program. They also have a lot of other opportunities that I have not had the chance to take part of, but I do plan on it.
I believe the Potterfields are saints, as well as the people who contribute to this organization.

As a manager in a major corporation, I wish my organization worked as caring and professional as theirs. Their staff is prompt and courteous with any inquiry or handling of a request.

The Midway USA Foundation has never left me to question their support of their mission statement.

I highly recommend the Midway Foundation.

This foundation's program, and its founders and staff, have demonstrated their commitment through action to their stated goals. Numerous served clients benefit each year from the foundation's programs which are clear, simple, transparent, helpful, and quite generous. The staff is friendly, forthcoming, and always happy to answer the "hard" questions clearly and fully. This foundation, through their long term funding model, and their generous matching and fund raising programs, provides a mechanism to have permanent impact on countless programs around the nation which provide opportunities for sometimes life-changing personal growth to countless middle and high school youth and college-age young adults. I have independently observed the ongoing benefits and served client impact of their programs first-hand since 2010 through present (2013) and therefore plan to continue supporting, and donating to, this foundation.
