Friends of NRA is a grassroots fundraising program that fosters community involvement to organize and plan, with help from NRA field staff, community events for firearms enthusiasts. All net proceeds from Friends of NRA events are allocated to The NRA Foundation, the leading charitable organization in support of the shooting sports.
Corporate sponsorships help The NRA Foundation 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.
