The NRA Foundation Mission at Work
The NRA Foundation is dedicated to protecting our Second Amendment freedoms by supporting activities that promote safe and responsible firearms ownership.
As America’s leading charitable organization in support of the shooting sports, we are dedicated to serving the needs of freedom-loving Americans, preserving the core of our American values and traditions, and Teaching Freedom across this great nation.
State Fund Grants
Each year, volunteers across the country raise charitable dollars and generous donors make gifts that are then awarded as grants in support of educational and public service programs relating to the shooting sports in our communities.
Capital Improvement Grants
Friends of NRA events are known for three things- fun, fellowship, and fundraising. Last year alone, there were over 600 Friends of NRA events across the country raising over $40 million dollars for The NRA Foundation.
Frontline Heroes Scholarship
The NRA Foundation Board of Trustees has established the Frontline Heroes Scholarship to institute a memorial to this distinguished group of First Responders, Law Enforcement Officers, and Military personnel*, who have served continuously and unselfishly in the highest tradition of our great nation.
The Frontline Heroes Scholarship will give a one-time annual award of up to $10,000 for one eligible candidate.
The NRA Foundation brings families together through hunting and shooting sport traditions, and exciting Friends of NRA events all across the country.
There is Something for Everyone at a Friends of NRA Event.
From the moment you walk in, the atmosphere is brimming with excitement. It’s a family-friendly event chock-full of everything from exclusive, limited edition merchandise and firearms to knives, art, jewelry, and more. Not to mention all the great people you’ll meet in the process!
Building the Future
Investing in the next generation of America’s leaders, a significant majority of The NRA Foundation grants support youth shooting sports programs.
The NRA Foundation grants provide essential program funding that ensures the availability of quality training and educational opportunities nationwide.
Invest in the future of the shooting sports. A gift to endowment provides a permanent source of funding to carry, sustain and grow The NRA Foundation’s programs.
Supporters in the Spotlight
The NRA Foundation couldn’t do everything we do without our generous corporate supporters.
“As part of The NRA Foundation, the John M. Browning Endowment benefits the NRA Shooting Sports Camp Program, part of the NRA’s Firearms Marksmanship and Training Endowment. Contributions to the endowment will never be spent, but rather invested to ensure a permanent funding for shooting programs into the future.”
"Thanks to the generous support of like-minded organizations like Dallas Safari Club Foundation, we are able to build the next generation of hunters and shooters through our youth programs. Dallas Safari Club Foundation has been a major supporter of the NRA Youth Hunter Education Challenge for several years, and we are proud to work together in this shared mission."
"All the folks here at Brownells absolutely believe in the tremendously important work the The NRA Foundation does on behalf of all gun owners."
