Vista Outdoor Foundation Donates $208,000 to Four Nonprofits

The donations mark the final contribution from the Vista Outdoor Foundation as the company prepares to separate.

The Vista Outdoor Foundation (the “Foundation”), the philanthropic partner of Vista Outdoor Inc. (NYSE: VSTO), today announced the donation of $208,000 to four nonprofit organizations, concluding a multi-year grant commitment. The four nonprofits receiving proceeds are:

  • Little Bellas: Mentoring on Mountain Bikes: Little Bellas creates opportunities for girls to experience success using mountain biking as the platform and pathway to personal growth.
  • Outdoors Tomorrow Foundation: The Outdoors Tomorrow Foundation teaches outdoor education and promotes and funds conservation of wildlife worldwide.
  • Pedal Power MN: Pedal Power has created a model for 4th and 5th grade classes to go out for weekly rides with their teachers, to use bikes instead of buses, and to ride year-round with an after-school group to locations all over Minneapolis.
  • Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation, Inc.: Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation provides shooting-sports education and opportunities to school-age youth to encourage young athlete personal growth and development.

The donations mark the final contributions from the Vista Outdoor Foundation. Post-separation, the new companies — Revelyst and The Kinetic Group — will develop their own charitable giving strategies and announce those to stakeholders.

“For the last several years, the Vista Outdoor Foundation has supported more than a dozen nonprofits through our robust grant program,” said Fred Ferguson, Chairman of the Vista Outdoor Foundation and Vice President of Public Affairs and Communications for Vista Outdoor’s Revelyst segment. “We couldn’t be prouder of all the donations we’ve made, and we hope our support will help all these organizations make a difference in their respective communities and activities.”

“Supporting educational programs and the responsible use of our products is so important to the future of wildlife and enjoyment of the outdoors,” said Jason Nash, Foundation board member and Vice President of Marketing for Vista Outdoor’s The Kinetic Group segment. “The Foundation has allowed us to provide additional resources to outstanding partners who exemplify how best to enrich our sporting heritage and ensure generations are able to enjoy the shooting sports.”
