We Fund the Future of the Shooting Sports
Funds raised through Friends of NRA events, together with other funds raised by The NRA Foundation, provide resources to fund grants at the national, state and local level.
The NRA Foundation awards grants to fund activities and programs that promote firearms and hunting safety, enhance marksmanship skills of those in the shooting sports, and educate the public about firearms in their historic, technological and artistic context.
Amazing and Dedicated Volunteers Plan Events
Every year, volunteers across the country gather to raise money for the future of the shooting sports. Together these dedicated individuals form Friends of NRA committees and plan some of the most fun and exciting events around.

Funds Raised are Awarded as Grants
Through the hard work of our volunteers and the funds they raise through Friends of NRA events, The NRA Foundation has been able to provide critical funding to firearm programs on the local, state, and national levels.
