r The Utah Scholastic Clay Target Program (Utah SCTP) asks for your support to grow their shooting team endowment accounts at the MidwayUSA Foundation. Each team has their own, earmarked team endowment at the MidwayUSA Foundation, a public charity that helps communities and organizations raise funds for their high school, college and other youth shooting teams and activities. Each year, teams with a MidwayUSA Foundation Team Endowment are eligible to receive a cash grant from that endowment to use for expenses like ammunition, travel, targets, uniforms, entry fees and more.

One of the main ways teams grow their team endowment is through online donations, which are matched 2:1 right now. Those interested in giving to a Utah SCTP team, where your donation will be matched 2:1, can visit the MidwayUSA Foundation website (midwayusafoundation.org/donate) and search for any of the Utah SCTP teams. Donations are tax deductible and 100% of the donation, as well as the match, benefits that specific shooting team. The Foundation keeps zero for operating expenses. This funding is available for the life of the team so growing the endowment is crucial to the future of our local shooting team.

“Without these donations, a lot of kids would be unable to participate in the sport they are passionate about. Public support helps make our sport possible,” Kyson Muhlestein, Student Athlete, Age 16.

Teams that are a part of Utah SCTP are: Heber Valley Hawks, Ogden Clay Dusters, Riverton Shooting Club, University of Utah Shotgun Team, USCTP Cache Valley Scholastic Trap Club, Utah Valley SCTP (SKYLINE X), and Wasatch Wing & Clays Youth Program. Donors may also contribute to the State Agency Endowment account by donating through the Facebook page (all donations will be forwarded to the MidwayUSA Foundation) or by calling MidwayUSA directly at 877-375-4570.

To learn more about Utah SCTP or to get more information about the team endowment accounts at the MidwayUSA Foundation, please contact Brian Beard at (385) 323-0815.

The MidwayUSA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity working to sustain the shooting sports industry by providing long-term funding to youth shooting teams. Every donation made is 100% tax deductible and supports the mission to help communities and organizations raise funds to support their youth shooting team. The Foundation supports all shooting disciplines. For more information about how the MidwayUSA Foundation is changing the future of youth shooting sports, please visit midwayusafoundation.org or call 1-877-375-4570.
