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.
Friends of NRA events are known for three things- fun, fellowship, and fundraising. In 2021 there were over 500 Friends of NRA events across the country raising over $40 million dollars for The NRA Foundation.
Through the hardwork 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.


Since its inception,
Friends of NRA has held over 24,000 events, reached over 4.5 million attendees, and raised over $1 billion through its wildly-successful fundraising program for The NRA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

Every year, The NRA Foundation allocates half of all net proceeds to go back into the state in which it was raised, where Friends of NRA State Fund Committees decide on programs and projects to fund on the local and state levels.

The other half of funds raised at Friends of NRA events is used to fund projects similar to those seen on the local and state levels but with a national scope. These funds help sustain over 180 NRA National Supported Programs across the country.
