We assist in managing funds for organizations with a unique youth shooting sports mission.

An organization with a balance in its MidwayUSA Foundation Donor Designated Endowment may receive a grant once per year.  The maximum Donor Designated grant is 5% of the average monthly balance of the endowment. The 12 months preceding the grant application date will be used to find the average monthly balance.

Donor Designated endowments do not have fixed grant application dates like teams. The MidwayUSA Foundation financial department will notify the organization about its grant eligibility and the process to apply.  Additionally, an account statement and calculated grant amount will be provided.  Once a grant application is submitted through the MidwayUSA Foundation’s online grant system and approved by the Executive Director, the cash grant is paid in the selected month.

Grant funds are for direct support of the organization’s youth shooting sports program. MidwayUSA Foundation reserves the right to audit an organization’s use of Donor Designated grant funds.

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!
