Vortex Optics Supports MidwayUSA Foundation

Columbia, MO - MidwayUSA Foundation is proud to welcome Vortex Optics to their family of supporting sponsors. As the first Elite Sponsor, Vortex Optics is another industry leader investing in the future of youth shooting sports. A passion for shooting sports is often a gateway into other outdoor activities our youth can do for years and years to come. Innovative partnerships continue to provide opportunities that allow all youth interested in the shooting sports the chance to do so.

Vortex Optics representative, Jake Raffle, talked about this new sponsorship. “Providing the highest level of customer service and exceeding customer expectations is truly the core of Vortex Optics. MidwayUSA Foundation has proven to be an invaluable partner in helping us translate this value to the Youth Shooting Sports World.” Thousands of youth shooting teams across the country have MidwayUSA Foundation endowments that are earmarked specifically for their team to grow through donations and fundraisers. To assist in fundraising, participating teams are offered product grants. Quality products, like Vortex Optics binoculars and rangefinders, are provided at no cost to allow teams to conduct a local community fundraiser. Proceeds generated from these product grant fundraisers are split between the team’s local immediate needs and their team endowment at the MidwayUSA Foundation. Contributions are also matched through MidwayUSA Foundation’s current Matching Program.

Annually, teams with endowments at the MidwayUSA Foundation are eligible to receive a cash grant to help cover various shooting team expenses. Additional business leaders interested in supporting the future of the industry are encouraged to contact John Linquist, MidwayUSA Foundation Relationship Manager, by email or phone 573-219-7688.

About Vortex Optics: Since 1986 we have been and remain an American owned, Veteran owned, Family owned and operated business of hard-working folks located here in south-central Wisconsin.
