How It Works

The Fifth Annual

The Great Americans Shoot (TGAS)! 

Here's how it works...

We hope to once again be the largest net-to-charities shoot ever held in America!

The Great Americans Shoot is just that — great Americans shooting to benefit the charities that support the "Great Americans" of our military's Special Operations Community and their Families. These are the men and women on the very tip of the spear, who defend the Constitution and protect our incredible way of life every day.

This event is hosted by the Special Forces Charitable Trust.

"The Field" consists of twenty teams of 5 shooters.  Each shooter commits to raise, or "write a check", for a minimum of $10,000.00. Funds are raised by soliciting supporters to pledge by "the bird hit" (out of 50 possible). Each team will represent a military nonprofit of their choice.

That means 100% of all funds raised will go directly to the Special Forces Charitable Trust and the selected military nonprofits. All donations are fully tax-deductible; they are made payable to the Special Forces Charitable Trust, a certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Assuming we meet our goal of $1,000,000.00, proceeds will be divided in the following way:

Assumes we have raised $1 million $          1,000,000.00
SFCT receives first $500,000 $ 500,000.00
1st place team's charity receives 30% of remaining  $ 150,000.00
2nd place team's charity receives 25% of remaining $ 125,000.00
3rd place team's charity receives 20% of remaining $ 100,000.00
4th place team's charity receives 15% of remaining $ 75,000.00
5th place team's charity receives 10% of remaining $ 50,000.00

The prizes are incredible, and they will be announced on this website soon.

Please check out the Participants page to find “your” team. If you don't know anyone shooting, we hope you'll just pick a fun sounding team, flip a coin, and back some unsuspecting shooter. It is for the BEST of causes.

The reason we are here is to benefit the men and women for whom we are so thankful. The men & women of America's Special Operations Community are deployed around the world, some several times a year. They face the same daily challenges of finances and family that we all do, yet they have added to that the burdens of extended separations, extreme stress, the constant malady of PTSD, and sometimes injuries. They are our GREATEST Americans.

Thank you for your support!
