Ruger Supports MidwayUSA Foundation Through Online Auctions

Columbia, MO – Throughout 2023, Ruger Firearms has stepped up to support MidwayUSA Foundation and the future of shooting sports and the outdoor industry. From January to July, Ruger hosted 26 auctions with The proceeds from all the auctions, combined, totaled $40,0000 and benefited MidwayUSA Foundation, a public charity working to sustain and grow youth shooting sports by providing long-term funding to youth shooting teams. Every dollar will directly benefit youth shooting sports.

Ruger Public Relations Manager, Paul Pluff, talked about the importance of giving back. “Ruger Firearms is pleased to support MidwayUSA Foundation with the proceeds from our special fundraising auctions. These funds will help continue the Foundation’s efforts to support youth shooting sports programs that provide the critical safety and firearms training that focuses on the development of our next-generation shooting sports enthusiasts.” MidwayUSA Foundation funds approximately 2,800 youth shooting teams through earmarked endowments. Each year, a team can receive a 5% cash grant from their endowment balance to cover expenses like ammo, targets, safety equipment, travel, and more.

MidwayUSA Foundation’s Executive Director, G. Scott Reynolds, spoke about this vital assistance. “Once again, Ruger has set the example by choosing to directly support youth in shooting sports. Their generosity to ensure America’s youth have the opportunity and funds to participate in the shooting sport of their choice is not only appreciated, but impactful.” Tens of thousands of young shooting athletes rely on MidwayUSA Foundation’s funding to participate, and the resources and generosity of large companies are irreplaceable. G. Scott Reynolds added, “Commitment from industry leaders, such as Ruger, makes a real difference in furthering youth development through shooting sports. We can’t thank Ruger enough for their partnership and support of our mission!” MidwayUSA Foundation also provides Coach Training and Range Development grants to further the sport.
