MidwayUSA Foundation Awards $2.3M in Range Improvement Grants

Posted on |

Hey shooting sports fans, guess what? The MidwayUSA Foundation is making it rain with a whopping $2.3 MILLION in grants to upgrade shooting ranges across the U.S. This is the fourth year in a row they’ve showered ranges with cash to make shooting sports more accessible for young athletes.

This year, they spread the love to a record-breaking 99 recipients! That means more ranges are getting the glow-up they need to create the ultimate shooting experience for our youth.

So, what kind of upgrades are we talking about? Think bigger and better parking lots for those major events, improved accessibility for everyone, and even brand new sporting clays courses to spice things up.

G. Scott Reynolds, the foundation’s executive director, hit the nail on the head when he said, “America’s youth not only need funding to cover their shooting sports expenses, but they need qualified coaches to teach them to shoot safely, and they need a safe place to shoot.”

And guess what? It’s not just about having fun (although that’s a major perk). Shooting sports teach valuable life skills like discipline, focus, and responsibility. Plus, they help fund conservation efforts through the Pittman-Robertson Act. So, it’s a win-win!

If you’re part of a shooting organization or range, you might be wondering how to get in on this action. Here’s the scoop:

  1. Hold an endowment with the MidwayUSA Foundation. It’s like getting your foot in the door to the coolest club in town.
  2. Team up with your local youth shooting team. This is a collaborative effort, so work together to submit your application.
  3. Show them your vision. The foundation wants to see how your proposed upgrades will benefit young shooters in your community.

So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to level up those ranges and give our future sharpshooters the resources they deserve!
