MidwayUSA Foundation Accepting Grant Applications

Columbia, MO – The MidwayUSA Foundation is currently accepting grant applications from shooting teams in their Team Endowment Program. Any youth shooting team with a balance in their MidwayUSA Foundation Team Endowment that did not apply in December is eligible to apply for a cash grant now. Applicants must complete the MidwayUSA Foundation grant application, found at and submit it by June 15th.

Teams are eligible to apply for a cash grant, every year. Youth shooting teams can receive 5% of their endowment balance to use for shooting team expenses, such as ammunition, travel, entry fees, uniforms, targets, and more. The June 2019 cycle has nearly 1,900 teams eligible, and a potential payout of about $2.6 million.

In their last grant cycle, the MidwayUSA Foundation paid over $3.2 million in grants to nearly 900 youth shooting teams. Each year the number of grant applications submitted has increased. Ideally, every shooting team with an endowment will receive a grant each year. If you need assistance or have questions about eligibility, you can email
