The "Friends of NRA" is a group that hold fundraisers, such as banquets, for the 'future of shooting sports'. Friends of NRA banquets are known for three things- fun, fellowship, and fundraising. Last year alone, there were over 1,070 Friends of NRA events across the country raising over $20 million dollars for The NRA Foundation.

Locally, the next "Friends of NRA" banquet is scheduled for June 29th.

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


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 banquets is used to fund projects similiar 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.
