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.
