The following guidelines govern the award of all NRA Foundation State Fund Committee grants made under the auspices of the Friends of NRA program.

APPLICATIONS FROM GUN CLUBS AND RANGES SEEKING RANGE IMPROVEMENTS

If you are applying for a grant to improve or otherwise enhance your range, you must complete and submit the Range Grant Application.

Failure to complete and submit the correct application will result in rejection of the application.

Applications from sportsman's clubs and ranges will be evaluated and treated in the same manner as applications from any other entities.

  1. Applicants for range improvements/developments must supply a copy of the deed or lease for the land on which a club or range is located.
  2. Proposed projects must promote an allowable 501(c)(3) purpose. Applications from clubs or ranges requesting improvements to ranges must demonstrate how the proposed project will benefit the public at large.
  3.  Applications for range or club improvements must contain letters of support from nonprofit organizations as the Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, 4-H, FFA, law enforcement, ROTC or other military units, recognized charities, governmental entities, or other 501(c)(3) or equivalent organizations, demonstrating how those organizations will benefit from this grant and that the improvements sought are necessary and required for those organizations to continue to use, or get more use out of, the facilities.
  4. Applicants must provide a minimum of three (3) such letters detailing the public benefit or the application for funding will be denied. Applicants are encouraged to provide a letter from each such nonprofit organization that uses the facilities.
  5. The more an applicant demonstrates the public benefit, the easier it will be to approve the grant.

Applications from clubs or ranges that describe how the project will benefit club members, NRA members, or potential members will be rejected.
