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 $369 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.
NRA Foundation Grants
The NRA Foundation provides financial support to eligible projects, programs and organizations through its Grant Program. Each year, volunteer committees from across the country tirelessly raise charitable dollars and generous donors make gifts that are in turn awarded as grants in support of educational and public service programs relating to the shooting sports in our communities.
The general focus of Foundation grants is to:
- Promote, advance and encourage firearms, shooting sports and hunting safety
- Educate individuals with respect to firearms, firearms history, participation in the shooting sports, hunting safety, and marksmanship
- Conduct research in furtherance of improved firearms safety and marksmanship facilities and techniques
