Becoming an Outdoors Woman in Minnesota archer

The Minnesota BOW program is supported by many contributors and sponsors. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources provides some staff and operation monies to the program. A steering committee composed of representatives from a wide range of outdoor-related interests provides input and direction for Minnesota's B.O.W. program and numerous organizations and retailers provide equipment and scholarships for program participants.

Following is a list of major supporters of Minnesota's B.O.W. program. A number of other companies have provided small donations for the workshops.
