We are really excited about this program, as it can potentially fund the BLFGA Youth Shooting Sports Program in perpetuity! With information from Mike Bechtel at SSP Eyewear, webecame of this program begun by the Porterfield’s of Midway USA. The program is theformation of an endowment fund for the individual teams throughout the country, with everydollar donated to the club’s account matched by the Potterfield’s with another dollar. Throughout 2017, they are matching every dollar donated with two dollars! The fund is administered by the foundation, and is interest bearing as well. The club is eligible to write an application for a grant once a year for up to 5% of the club fund balance for use in our shooting sports program. The foundation also has items they donate to the club for use in fundraising, with the proceeds used to grow the endowment fund balance. We have requested and have received, free, 30 great items this year, with the plan being to hold a month-long raffle in September with 1,000 $20 tickets sold. This will increase our fund balance by $20,000, which when matched by the foundation, will instantly become $40,000. Any individual or company can also donate to the fund, with each dollar also matched! At just the $40,000, the club can write a grant yearly for $2,000 - forever. The foundation is also a 501c3 corporation, so donations to the fund are tax deductible!
