Over the first three years of existence, the foundation has contributed over $40,000 in the form of athletic scholarships and assistance to athletes who needed help purchasing equipment or financing required camps and fees to play the sports they desire.

In 2022, in conjunction with Thunder Radio, the foundation hosted the first ever Thundies Sports Awards, recognizing over 30 athletes in the Coffee County Community for their excellence in athletics and giving out $13,000 in hard-earned scholarships to athletes on their way to college and/or technical school after graduating from Central High School. The 2023 Thundies grew to include over 40 athletes and $23,000 in scholarships.
