Midway USA Foundation Endowment Matching ProgramMidway USA Foundation

PYSA, a 501(c)(3) public charity, is a state partner of the MidwayUSA Foundation. We work closely with them to help maximize donations to your MidwayUSA Foundation Endowment account.

Thanks to the generosity of Larry & Brenda Potterfield we have $86,800 to match donations made to Team Endowment Accounts.

Send a donation to PYSA along with a Donor Form that identifies the team account to receive the funds.  Donations made to PYSA are tax deductible under section 170 of the IRS Code.  Make your check payable to: Pennsylvania Youth Shooting Association, 326 Vanyo Rd, Berlin, PA 15530

Funds may come from any source (team, booster organization, individual, business, etc.). Your team may also return money raised from a MidwayUSA Foundation promotional item, fulfilling your LOI commitment, through PYSA. Fundraising items are usually available for teams through MidwayUSA Foundation so please check their website for details www.midwayusafoundation.org/promotions
