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 nearly $335 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.
Half of the profit raised by each Friends of NRA banquet is spent in the state in which it was held. The other half supports qualifying national-level programs. State Fund Committees, which are made up of volunteers, review grant applications from local organizations and make recommendations to The NRA Foundation on how the money might best be used in their areas.
