Henry Repeating Arms has announced a donation of $25,000 to Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever. This donation is part of Henry’s $1 million silver anniversary pledge and the company’s commitment to safeguarding America’s outdoors and hunting traditions.

“Our longstanding partnership with Henry Repeating Arms has fundraised countless dollars for local volunteers to improve habitat and access in their communities,” said president and CEO of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever Marilyn Vetter. “This incredible donation will ensure that wildlife habitat will continue to thrive for generations to come. Thank you to Henry Repeating Arms for its steadfast commitment to upland landscapes throughout the pheasant and quail range.”

Driven primarily through donations and grassroots chapter efforts, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever share a common mission of conserving upland bird populations and other wildlife through habitat improvements, educational outreach, public access and conservation advocacy at the federal level.

Since 1982, the organizations have improved over 24 million acres and, together with local, state and federal agencies, have acquired over 225,000 acres that will forever be protected for use by the public.

“Perhaps more than any other pursuit, bird hunting is what gets me excited, and it is important to me personally that we continue to see the success of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever,” said president of Henry Repeating Arms Andy Wickstrom. “Especially here in the Midwest, we see wildlife habitat constantly under threat of industry and expansion, so I applaud the more than 400,000 members, partners, and donors of Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever for their unwavering conservation efforts.”

Since June 2022, Henry Repeating Arms has donated over $650,000 to a wide variety of organizations from the company’s charitable branch, Guns for Great Causes. While the primary focus of Guns for Great Causes is pediatric cancer, other beneficiaries include organizations providing support for military veterans, law enforcement, first responders and particularly those assisting the wounded, injured, and the families of those who lost a loved one in the line of duty. Wildlife conservation, preserving and promoting America’s shooting sports traditions, firearm safety education and Second Amendment advocacy are also included.
