Friends of NRA

Fairfax, Virginia – The NRA Foundation is proud to announce the 15 beneficiaries of the Oregon Friends of NRA 2014 Youth Scholarship Program. Each high-achieving high school senior will receive a $1,000 scholarship to pursue higher education.

“It is an honor to see these youth learn about our Second Amendment through this program and to see them develop an appreciation for the freedoms it allows,” Katie Jones, chair of Douglas County Friends of NRA, said about the recently awarded scholarships. “I honestly believe educating youth today is the best way to protect these rights for future generations of Americans to enjoy.”

Support the NRA and the shooting sports at Friends of NRA dinners in Arkansas, Idaho, Florida and more

Friends of NRA

Fairfax, Virginia - Straight from the NRA's Event Marketing and Communications Manager, Nicole McMahon, here's an update on the Friends of NRA banquets coming up this next week.

Friends of NRA banquets are full of great people who support the Second Amendment and want to raise money for local, state and national shooting sports programs. Each event is run by our absolutely dedicated volunteers. Without their help, Friends of NRA would not be able to have such reach across the country or make as much of an impact on the future of our shooting sports heritage as we do today.

Support the NRA and the shooting sports at Friends of NRA dinners in Massachusetts, Missouri, Wyoming and more

Friends of NRA

Fairfax, Virginia - Friends of NRA banquets have brought Second Amendment supporters together for more than 20 years now under one goal: ensuring the future of America's shooting sports.

Out of the 1,000 banquets scheduled for 2014, only 40 remain. But don't worry, the 2015 season will pick up right as this year comes to a close thanks to the dedicated volunteers who make the program possible.

Funds raised at Friends of NRA banquets make a real difference. Half of all money raised at a banquet goes right back into grants for local shooting sports programs and the other half supports programs with a national scope. Besides all the good they do, they're a whole lot of fun.

If you haven't attended a banquet, try one out. Below are the banquets coming up this next week, but you can visit the Friends of NRA website and see what's coming up in your neck of the woods.

Safe, smart firearm storage to benefit shooting sports programs around the US

SecureIt Tactical donates 300 Falcon Fast Box gun safes to NRA

Fairfax, Virginia - SecureIt Tactical, manufacturers of modular, component-based firearms storage solutions, has donated 300 Falcon Fast Box gun safes, valued at $100,000, to NRA’s Law Enforcement Division and The NRA Foundation, America’s leading charitable organization in support of the shooting sports.

“We are very excited to work with the NRA to promote our shared goals of safety, security and personal freedom,” said SecureIt Tactical President Tom Kubiniec. “While the Fast Box is quickly being adopted by firearms enthusiasts and law enforcement, everyday citizens concerned about personal safety and security benefit the most from our efficient and practical solution to firearm storage.”

Donated Falcon Fast Boxes will be made available at select Friends of NRA banquets this fall and funds raised are expected to exceed the donated value. Proceeds will be distributed to local, state, and national shooting sports programs through NRA Foundation grants. Additionally, Falcon Fast Boxes will be awarded as prizes for Law Enforcement competitions throughout the year.
