About FNRA

Whether you're a hunter, competitive shooter or just a proud gun owner, Friends of NRA has something for everyone. The format is simple food, fun, family and fundraising! At every Friends of NRA Fundraiser you'll have the opportunity to participate in games, live and silent auctions, and more. You'll also find many unique items including limited edition firearms, wildlife art, jewelry and outdoor gear.

Every year, volunteers across the country gather to raise money for the future of the shooting sports - together these dedicated individuals form Friends of NRA committees and plan some of the most fun and exciting fundraisers around.

Friends of NRA fundraisers are known for three things - fun, fellowship, and fundraising. Last year alone, there were over 1,000 Friends of NRA events across the country raising over $18.5 million dollars for The NRA Foundation.

Through the hard work of our volunteers and the funds they raise through Friends of NRA events, The NRA Foundation has been able to provide critical funding to firearm programs on the local, state, and national levels.

Since its inception, Friends of NRA has held over 13,000 events, reached over two million attendees, and raised over $162 million through its wildly-successful fundraising program for The NRA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.

Every year, The NRA Foundation allocates half of all net proceeds to go back into the state in which it was raised, where Friends of NRA State Fund Committees decide on programs and projects to fund on the local and state levels.

The other half of funds raised at Friends of NRA event is used to fund projects similar to those seen on the local and state levels but with a national scope. These funds help sustain over 180 NRA National Supported Programs across the country.
