The MidwayUSA Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity working to sustain and grow youth shooting sports by providing long-term funding to youth shooting teams through annual cash grants. Every donation made is tax-deductible and allows the Foundation to assist in expanding and enhancing the leadership skills, confidence, and discipline of today’s youth through shooting sports activities.

We support all shooting disciplines and you can help make an impact by donating to the team endowment, organizational endowment, or special purpose program of your choice. 100% of your donation benefits that endowment and your donation may qualify for a match through our current Matching Program.

Mission

We help communities and organizations raise funds to support their high school, college, and other youth shooting teams and activities. We also manage a variety of special purpose endowed funds for the support and advancement of youth shooting sports.

Supporters

For California Residents:  Due to California Bill AB2571, which targets the advertising or marketing of firearms-related products to minors (under the age of 18) in the state of California, MidwayUSA Foundation is only able to provide limited fundraising and administrative support to endowed youth shooting teams and organizations in that state.  As you know, MidwayUSA Foundation is a nonprofit, charitable and educational organization that is not engaged in the sale of actual firearm-related products.  Our programs specifically educate youth on safe usage of firearms and firearm-related products.  Unfortunately, given this law, product grants, in-state events, sweepstakes participation, some news and some marketing updates (direct mail or email), etc. must be suspended until further notice.  Please reach out to your program manager with questions.  Thank you for your understanding.

If you are a minor in California, please do not continue on this website.  Otherwise, welcome to MidwayUSA Foundation!
