Clay Crushers asking for support on Giving Tuesday



FORT MADISON - The Fort Madison High School Clay Crushers 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 1, the FMHS Clay Crushers asks for your support to grow their MidwayUSA Foundation endowment. The FMHS Clay Crushers have 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.

One of the main ways teams grow the endowment is through online donations, which are matched. Those interested in giving to the FMHS Clay Crushers, where your donation will be matched, can visit FMHS Clay Crushers MidwayUSA Foundation website ( 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.
