DALLAS — The Youth Target Foundation (YTF) recently received a total $1,256,000 in grants from the Midway USA Foundation to support the Youth Target Foundation’s youth competitions. For 2013, Midway USA Foundation granted $395,000 for the 2013 TXSCTP State shoot and also for 3 YTF competitions in the fall: one each in trap, skeet and sporting clay. For 2014, YTF was granted $861,000, to again fund the SCTP State shoot, and also four Texas Regional competitions and another three YTF competitions in the spring.
While a small amount will be used as operating funds for all 12 competitions, the majority of the funds are earmarked as endowment funds to be given to teams participating in the competitions. More than $1.1 million will be placed in the Scholastic Shooting Trust accounts for participating youth teams; $290,000 will be endowed at the 2013 TXSCTP State Shoot on June 15 -16. These funds directly support teams in the Scholastic Clay Target Program, Youth Target Foundation, 4-H, FFA and many more programs. Teams will benefit from this money for years to come, making it possible for more teams to participate and to continue to support growth.
