The Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) Vision 20/20 campaign has about three weeks left for this year. This year to date, SSSF has donated nearly $1.49 million to benefit 378 teams participating in the Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) and Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) across 38 different states.
An impressive $77,750 in donations have been received from the top six fundraising teams. These funds, after being dispersed, will benefit several SCTP and SASP teams around the country. SSSF’s goal is to introduce more student-athletes to the world of clay target and action shooting. This will help ensure the protection of the Second Amendment for future generations.
The tax-deductible donations benefit teams through a combination of cash grants to the team, and deposits with matching funds to the team’s endowment account with the MidwayUSA Foundation. Teams can request a grant of up to five percent of their endowment account balance once per year to pay for team expenses.
Additionally, the top six fundraising teams in the campaign will share $30,000 in team endowment bonus funds, with $10,000 going to the top fundraising team at the end of the campaign.
The current standings (as of December 5) are:
Waterford Wolverine Shooting Team Wisconsin - $20,000
Union Grove Broncos Shooting Club Wisconsin - $15,000
Ballard Clay Bombers Iowa - $11,950
Mason-Dixon Clay Busters Pennsylvania - $10,500
Tucson Straight Shooters Arizona - $10,300
H.S. Demons Shooting Team Wisconsin - $10,000
This year’s campaign runs through December 31, 2017. You can donate securely online, or mail a donation directly to the SSSF. For more information, please visit www.sssfonline.org/vision2020.
