We offer all of our constituents as much information as possible about how our funds are utilized.

MidwayUSA Foundation is a grantmaking 501(c)(3) public charity. We know that anyone can pull our IRS form 990 tax returns and receive decent financial information, but the 990 form doesn’t provide anything beyond the numbers. For more transparency, we created a comprehensive listing with Guidestar, one of the top organizations providing information about mission, legitimacy, impact, reputation, finances, programs, transparency, and governance of non-profits. In fact, we have provided enough information to Guidestar to receive their platinum participation designation.

MidwayUSA Foundation is a grantmaking 501(c)(3) public charity, not a bank or financial institution.  Donations received by the Foundation for the benefit of a Team or Organization are the property of the MidwayUSA Foundation under the control of our Board of Directors.  Teams and Organizations with endowment accounts do not own or control the funds in those accounts, and grants are never guaranteed, regardless of account status.  That said, the Board of Directors and Management of MidwayUSA Foundation are committed to providing long term, sustainable grant funding to all endowed Teams and Organizations.  It is the reason this Foundation exists and the mission is unlikely to change.
