STEP 1: CREATE ENDOWMENT ACCOUNTS
Two endowment opportunities are listed below. Once your endowment account(s) is active, you can start growing funds immediately! Your team must operate in Georgia but does not have to be affiliated with a high school, college or club to open an endowment account. You simply need to be a reputably organized youth club or team. (GYSSF reserves the right to decide what constitutes a club or team.) Club teams, such as 4-H, Boy Scouts, FFA, etc., or those affiliated with your local gun club, are eligible. We encourage applicants to seek out other funding opportunities and use them along with these:

STEP 3: DEPOSIT FUNDS INTO YOUR ACCOUNT
Two ways to deposit funds into your endowment account are as follows:
1. SUBMIT FUNDS TO GYSSF, who then matches your funds* and sends them to your Midway USA Foundation who in turn, matches a portion of those funds as well!
2. SUBMIT FUNDS DIRECTLY TO MIDWAYUSA FOUNDATION: Complete this form.
STEP 4: REQUEST YOUR GRANT FROM MIDWAYUSA FOUNDATION
Teams with an Endowment Account may apply for a grant of up to 5% of their account balance once per year. MidwayUSA Foundation offer two grant cycles each year, but teams may only apply once per year. There must be at least 12 months between grant applications. (Visit our GRANT FAQs to learn more.)

STEP 6: REPEAT THE PROCESS
To grow your investment, repeat steps one through five as many times a year as you'd like and watch your balance grow! (Withdrawals are only allowed annually, but deposits are encouraged as often as possible.)
