FUNDRAISER IDEAS:

As with any organization, funding is a top priority. So here are a few proven programs:

 

 

FAMILY OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE EVENTS: (FREE to the general public)

Introduced in 2014 our USAYESS Family Outdoor Experience (F.O.E.) events are intended to introduce youth in elementary school through high school and their families to firearm safety, shooting sports, including competitive shooting, wildlife and wildlife habitat conservation. These one day (Saturday) events are free to the general public. Youth get to experience Skeet, Trap, Archery, .22 rifle target shooting and BB Guns while under the care of certified instructors. Conservation groups are on site to teach about outdoor wildlife conservation. If you would like to have a booth at one of these events, please contact us at 831-229-4872.

 

 

BREAK-A-CLAY DAY 

Introduced and designed back in 2000 by Dennis Rohman (Golden State YESS) and Mike Borg, as a fun way to raise funding our Break-A-Clay day is a fun filled one day event that is based on the national program Walk-A-Thon. First introduced in California this event has proven to be a huge and fun event for the team. athletes and community. Simple to implement by solicating funds based on targets broken. This program is such a huge success that other organizations have picked up on it and are designing their own programs. Either way, it's a great fundraiser.
