America's Leading Charitable Organization

in Support of the Shooting Sports

For more than two decades, The NRA Foundation has served the needs of freedom-loving Americans across this great nation. We continue to teach freedom through programs that instill knowledge about our nation’s great history. We build partnerships with leaders in our communities and provide grants that are instrumental in funding programs that support our shared vision.

Since our establishment in 1990, we’ve awarded more than $457 million in grant funding in support of the shooting sports. These grants provide essential funding that benefits programs such as youth education, law enforcement training, hunter education, conservation, firearms and marksmanship training and safety, and much more.



Protecting our Second Amendment freedoms with activities that promote safe and responsible firearms ownership.



Bringing families together through hunting and shooting sport traditions and Friends of NRA activities.



Investing in the next generation of America’s leaders, a significant majority of The NRA Foundation grants support youth shooting sports programs.
