Donations in Action

STAYING TRUE TO OUR MISSION, Wheatie’s Drive was able to make contributions to six organizations over the last year. They are:

Kids and Mentors Outdoors (K.A.M.O)
K.A.M.O.’s mission is to provide outdoor experiences to children including fishing, canoeing, camping, hunting, wildlife viewing and hiking. Created by outdoor columnist Mark Walters, K.A.M.O. is a free mentoring program for children ages 9 and older who team up with mentors over a period of several years so their appreciation for nature can be more fully developled. www.kamokids.org

Tom’s Guns Learn to Hunt Program
Located in Marshall, WI, this 20 year old learn to hunt program truly goes to bat for young, and old, hunter want-to-bes. If their hunters don’t have a mentor, this program provides one. If the hunter doesn’t have camo to wear, Tom’s Guns rounds up some. Whatever the hunter needs to experience the hunt, Tom’s Guns provides it for them. Including a free tag for those participating in their learn to hunt program.

Fishing Has No Boundaries – Madison Chapter
Fishing Has No Boundaries is a non-profit organization whose goal is to open up the great outdoors for people with disabilities through the world of fishing. FHNB has grown into a National Organization with 27 chapters in 13 states, enabling thousands of individuals with disabilities to participate fully in this spirit lifting, morale booster, trouble free recreational activity. www.fhnbmadison.com

Cottage Grove Recreation Department
The Cottage Grove Parks and Recreation Department is dedicated to improving the quality of life for all citizens by providing the best possible recreation programs, special events, facilities, and services that encourage lifelong learning, fitness, and fun.

Kicking Bear
Kicking Bear is a youth foundation committed to helping our nation’s youth by targeting underprivileged and at-risk youth in order to help them develop relationships, goals and skills they need to break the cycles of poverty, abuse and violence and become contributing members of society.

Watch firsthand how this single mom was able to help her son’s dream come true of pulling a bow back for the first time all the way through to a successful hunt.

First Tee
The mission of The First Tee of South Central Wisconsin is to impact the lives of young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life-enhancing values and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.

Thank you to those that help make this possible.

Our Mission:

Wheatie’s Drive is a foundation created in the memory of Brian “Wheatie” Wiest. Brian had a passion and respect for the outdoors, which is at the heart of the foundation. Whea tie’s Drive is focused on providing opportunities to individuals and organizations that seek to enrich the lives of others through outdoor activities.

By making a donation to a community recreation program, providing funds to a youth fishing trip, or sponsoring an individual to participate in a learn-to-hunt program, Wheatie’s Drive will stay true to its mission and provide lifelong memories.

Giving Back:

100% of the Proceeds from our Fundraiser will Benefit Wheatie’s Drive

Wheatie’s Drive has formed a committee that will meet on a yearly basis and review potential organizations or individuals to help support. The review committee will base their gift decision on one main theme: How closely related the activity is to something Brian would be proud of supporting. One monetary gift or several will be awarded each year.

If you or someone you know is associated with an organization that provides learning opportunities in the great outdoors, please contact us. There is no requirement of age, gender, or time of year.
