The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation’s Vision 20/20 campaign is in the home stretch with just over three weeks left! Over $100,000 in donations have been received to date benefiting multiple Scholastic Clay Target Program and Scholastic Action Shooting Program teams around the country. Tax-deductible donations to your favorite team benefit the team via a combination of SSSF cash grants to the team and deposits with matching funds to the team’s endowment account at the MidwayUSA Foundation.
The top 6 fundraising teams in the campaign will also share $30,000 in team endowment BONUS funds with $10,000 going to the top fundraising team at the end of the campaign. Current standings (as of 12/5/17) are as follows:
In 2016 the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation launched a campaign entitled, “VISION 20/20” with the goal to grow national participation in the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) to over 20,000 student athletes annually by the year 2020. In partnership with industry partners, civic organizations, member teams and DONORS like you the SSSF will provide the opportunity and funding for more students to join existing shooting teams and create new teams where none exist today. By introducing more student athletes to the world of clay target and action shooting, we will also ensure the protection of the Second Amendment for generations to come!
Donors have the choice to support a local Scholastic Clay Target Program / Scholastic Action Shooting Program team and/or the national efforts of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation to start SCTP and SASP teams where none exist today. For a limited time, donations to your favorite team will be matched 4:1 and donations to the SSSF’s national efforts will be matched 2:1! All donations are tax deductible.
Donations directed to teams support local SCTP and SASP teams in two ways:
Cash grants provided by Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation for the upcoming season.
