How Donating Your Firearm Can Help The NRA

Have you wanted to help the NRA but unsure how to begin? 

Let us help! There are many ways in which you can help us protect and defend your constitutional right to own and use firearms – becoming a member, volunteering at NRA events, attending a local Friends of NRA event...

Or donating to NRA Firearms For Freedom, a unique opportunity for members to use their firearms to further support the NRA and the freedoms for which it stands. Firearms may be donated to the National Firearms Museum or Firearms For Freedom auctions.

The program has seen many unique donations to the Museum such as the Thomas Blackjack Ketchum Colt which was featured in NRA Museums Guns of the Week. Many more have been donated to be sold in world-class auction houses. Since the programs inception in 2010, over 3,700 firearms have been sold in auction.

But how does this help? Funds of auctions are distributed to the NRA or affiliate program determined by each donor, aka you! You can decide where the funds go whether thats The NRA Foundation, Civil Rights Defense Fund, NRA-ILA, Eddie Eagle, women’s programs, etc.

Don’t have a firearm you wish to donate at this time? There are several other ways to give in Firearms For Freedom! You have the opportunity to provide a non-tax-deductible gift to the NRA, a tax-deductible donation to an NRA affiliate, or even a non-gun gift. We are pleased to announce that recently Firearms For Freedom has partnered with BudsGunShop.com to facilitate auctions.

“Bud’s Gun Shop is committed to supporting the NRA and our Second Amendment freedom,” said Clifford T. Burgess, NRA Firearms For Freedom Program Coordinator. “Bud’s Gun Shop is not charging the NRA for its services and is waiving seller’s and buyer’s fees ensuring that the NRA raises the maximum amount for its critical programs.”

Bud’s Gun Shop will also be participating in the NRA Round-Up and Add-A-Buck programs. Both programs are geared towards retailers that either ask their customers to “round up” their total to the next-higher dollar amount and contribute the difference to the NRA, or add one dollar — or multiple dollars — to any purchase or order. To date, NRA Round-Up and Add-A-Buck programs have generated nearly $20 million in gifts for NRA programs.
