Announcing the 2014 MidwayUSA Foundation Browning Silver Sporting Fundraiser
Although our very successful Family Legacy rifle/knife promotion continues, we have a new fundraising opportunity just around the corner for 2014! In January we will kick off our latest promotion which is comprised of a Browning Silver Sporting shotgun, currently available only as a prototype, and a fixed-blade Browning knife complete with the MidwayUSA logo on the hilt. Participating organizations have the option (while supplies last) of ordering just the shotgun or a combination package made up of the shotgun and 96 knives. The Foundation will offer a total of 100 of the guns-only packages and 200 of the combination packages. Once we've exhausted our supply of one option, only the remaining option will be available, so we encourage those interested to complete and return the Silver Sporting letter of intent to secure your packages now.

The MidwayUSA Foundation's iPad/laptop Fundraiser Enters a New Phase
Your efforts in establishing and growing your team’s endowment account play a key role in your team’s enduring financial security in these tough economic times. As our very successful Family Legacy fundraising promotion continues, our equally successful iPad/HP laptop promotion is coming to an end. There is still time for your team to participate in this dynamic fundraiser while taking advantage of our new, and very generous, matching offer. For new orders beginning today, the MidwayUSA Foundation will offer, at no cost to participants, Apple iPAD II tablet computers and/or HP ProBook 4530s notebook computers to organizations meeting our participation criteria. To participate in this fundraiser, organizations must complete and return the iPAD/laptop letter of intent, providing either an IRS 501(c)3 determination letter or an IRS Form W9 with employer identification number (EIN).
All that we ask is that you make a concerted effort to raise $500 per item. Teams sending their $500 in proceeds to Foundation endowment accounts will receive a 4:1 match until 7/31/2013. Teams sending in less than $500 per item will receive a 1:1 match. Since the Foundation will not match proceeds in excess of $500 per item, we recommend teams keep proceeds raised in excess of that amount per item for their own operational use. The only limitation on the number of times your team can participate in this promotion is the number of systems we have remaining, so if you’re interested in participating, I encourage you to send in your Letter of Intent and tax exempt paperwork as soon as possible.
The terms and conditions of this promotion are solely for this promotion. Teams participating in the Foundation’s iPad/HP laptop promotion prior to 4/19/2013 are bound by the terms and conditions of that promotion’s respective letter of intent. Teams participating in this promotion MUST send in the letter of intent and computer promotion check donation form posted on our website.
