Colville, WA - USA Youth Education in Shooting Sports (USAYESS) has joined the Giving Tuesday movement, a global day of giving that kicks off the giving season and follows Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On this day, December 3rd, USAYESS asks for your support to grow their MidwayUSA Foundation endowment. Each USAYESS team has their own, earmarked endowment at the MidwayUSA Foundation, a public charity that helps communities and organizations raise funds for their high school, college and other youth shooting teams and activities.

Each year, teams and organizations with a MidwayUSA Foundation Team Endowment are eligible to receive a cash grant from that endowment to use for expenses like ammunition, travel, targets, uniforms, entry fees and more.

"USAYESS is both proud and honored to be able to introduce youth, their family and friends to outdoor activities on a national level," said Mike Borg, President of USAYESS. "None of this would be possible without support from public and corporate donations."

One of the main ways teams grow the endowment is through online donations, which are matched. Those interested in giving to a local USAYESS team endowment, where your donation will be matched, can visit the MidwayUSA Foundation website ( and search for the team of their choice. Donations are tax-deductible and 100% of the donation, as well as the match, benefits that specific shooting team. This funding is available for the life of the team so growing the endowment is crucial to the future of our local shooting team.
