The NRA Foundation is the country's leading charitable organization in support of       the shooting sports, having awarded thousands of grants in support of educational     programs since its inception in 1990. Since its establishment in October 1992             Friends of NRA events provide participants an opportunity to support the charitable     goals of The NRA Foundation and enjoy the camaraderie of other law-abiding gun     owners.


  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.
