NSSF to Become Major Event Sponsor at National Sporting Clay Cup Fundraiser
at Fork Farm & Childress Vineyards
USA Shooting and The National Shooting Sports Foundation® (NSSF®), the trade association for the firearms industry, have formalized a gold-level partnership agreement that will help America’s Shooting Team achieve their 2020 vision. This partnership includes top status as a major event sponsor for USA Shooting’s National Sporting Clay Cup Fundraiser later this summer.
NSSF becomes the third gold-level sponsor signed by USA Shooting since April, as companies are aligning to declare shooting as their Olympic and Paralympic sport in 2018. Federal Ammunition became a new sponsor in April while White Flyer was renewed just last week. SKB Cases and Podium also signed on as bronze-level sponsors as well in recent months.
NSSF is a longtime supporter of USA Shooting, and the two organizations have partnered together on many campaigns and projects over the years, including NSSF’s First Shots introduction-to-shooting program and NSSF’s Project ChildSafe program to promote firearm safety in the home. Following successes at each of the past three Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2008, 2012 and 2016, NSSF sponsored full-page advertisements in USA Today to congratulate America’s Shooting Team athletes. 
In August, USA Shooting will heavily promote National Shooting Sports Month, which celebrates the passion USA Shooting Team members and fans all have for target shooting and a pastime that provides a lifetime of enjoyment that can be shared with families and friends. At the same time, National Shooting Sports Month reminds the public that shooting is a safe, fun activity enjoyed by millions of Americans. National Shooting Sports Month provides
