 Indiana State Rifle & Pistol Junior Team Fund  Endowment Fund Established

In August ISRPA established an endowment fund titled Indiana State Rifle & Pistol Junior Team Fund with MidwayUSA Foundation.  The purpose of the fund is to provide monies for future generations of junior teams at the various National Matches.  Because of the generosity of Larry and Brenda Potterfield, owners of MidwayUSA, they will match 1:1 all monies donated to the fund.  Then each year ISRPA can withdraw 5% of those funds to use at its discretion to fund our teams.  The only restriction is that the funds cannot be used to purchase firearms.  All other team expenses qualify for those funds.  As of October 4th, there was already $750 in the fund, mainly because of matching funds by the Potterfields.  There are plans to place several hundred more dollars into the fund by December 31st.

If you should wish to donate simply go to the MidwayUSA Foundation website, look up the ISRPA Junior Team Fund and follow the instructions on how to donate.  Since MidwayUSA Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 organization all donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.  It is even possible to contribute stocks and/or points earned from certain credit cards to the account.

   Give it some thought; you don’t have to donate a million dollars to be effective.  Every donation $5, $10, $25 all adds up over time.  And remember from now till the end of the year at least (Larry and Brenda decide each year whether they will match donations and if so for how much) your donation will be matched dollar for dollar
