SST provides much-needed funds to school shooting teams.
Shooting teams at high schools, colleges, and universities provide great opportunities for students to develop confidence, shooting skills, and learn discipline and leadership. Unfortunately, more and more schools are running into funding problems and often, shooting teams are among the first things to be cut. Enter the Scholastic Shooting Trust. Its mission is to raise money for shooting education, invest it, and distribute the earnings in the form of grants. Whether the program is an NCAA competitor or the FFA shooting team at your local high school, it is eligible for support through the SST.
The easiest way to support your local team is to visit the SST Web site, scholasticshootingtrust.org, and register. From there, you can suggest a school for your donation. There are more than 23,000 high schools, colleges, and universities to choose from. A portion of your initial donation will be distributed to school teams, and the rest will be invested so that the fund can continue to provide grants in the future—ensuring the long-term future of shooting teams across the nation. The SST was created in 2008 through the MidwayUSA Foundation Inc, and donations are tax deductible.
