Ruger’s support of youth shooting sports was on display from January to July 2023 when it hosted 26 auctions at GunBroker.com, with all proceeds benefiting MidwayUSA Foundation. Roughly $40,000 was raised, and the foundation will use the money to provide long-term funding to youth shooting teams. Every dollar will directly benefit youth shooting sports.

“Ruger Firearms is pleased to support MidwayUSA Foundation with the proceeds from our special GunBroker.com fundraising auctions,” said Ruger Public Relations Manager Paul Pluff. “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 percent grant, in cash, from their endowment balance to cover expenses like ammo, targets, safety equipment, travel and more.

“Once again, Ruger has set the example by choosing to directly support youth in shooting sports,” said MidwayUSA Foundation Executive Director G. Scott Reynolds. “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. 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.”

For almost 75 years, Sturm, Ruger & Co., Inc. has been a model of corporate and community responsibility. Its motto, “Arms Makers for Responsible Citizens,” echoes the firm’s commitment to these principles as it works hard to deliver quality and innovative firearms.
