National Rifle Association announces Daniel Defense as Friends of NRA 2018 Exclusive Guardian Sponsor
FAIRFAX, Va. — The National Rifle Association is proud to announce Daniel Defense as the Exclusive 2018 Guardian Level Corporate Sponsor of the Friends of NRA program. The National Corporate Sponsor program takes Friends of NRA’s support of the shooting sports to a national scale.
Friends of NRA is the blockbuster fundraising program supporting The NRA Foundation. Since day one, it has been a 100 percent grassroots effort fueled by a shared passion for securing the Second Amendment and raising money for the shooting sports. Since its inception in 1992, Friends of NRA has held close to 21,000 events, reached over 4.3 million attendees and raised more than $810 million for The NRA Foundation.
For the fifth year in a row, Daniel Defense’s sponsorship helps The NRA Foundation provide critical support for firearm training and educational programs that ensure the continuation of America’s proud shooting and hunting heritage for generations to come.
Cindy and Marty Daniel are passionate about supporting shooting programs focused on education and training for youth and women in particular, an interest that perfectly connects with The NRA Foundation’s goals to support educational programs such as: the NRA Online Hunter Education course, designed to help new hunters of all ages learn how to be safe and responsible members of the hunting community, and Women On Target®, a firearm handling clinic by women and for women.
“Our commitment to Friends of NRA is the right thing to do,” said Cindy Daniel, Executive Vice President of Daniel Defense. “The future of shooting sports is very personal to Marty and me, as well as our entire team. Not only are we the National Corporate Sponsor, we’re also involved on a local level with Coastal Georgia Friends of NRA. I encourage everyone to find a way to get involved on some level to ensure the next generation has the same level of access to shooting sports.”
