Blue Water Friends Of The NRA

What are Friends of NRA?   Friends of NRA is a grassroots fundraising program that supports thousands of programs related to firearms education, hunter safety, wildlife conservation, range improvements, youth marksmanship, law enforcement, and the like. Working with NRA field representatives, members and volunteers organize banquets in their communities, which come complete with auctions, special drawings and fellowship.  Much of the merchandise at the banquets is donated or provided at reduced cost by hundreds of participating vendors.   Half of the profit raised by each Friends of NRA banquet is spent in the state in which it was held.  The other half supports qualifying national-level programs.  State Fund Committees, which are made up of volunteers, review grant applications from local organizations and make recommendations to The NRA Foundation on how the money might best be used in their areas. ---------------------------------------------------- Mission Statement  Established in 1992, The NRA Foundation, Inc. ("NRA Foundation") is a 501(c )(3) tax-exempt organization that raises tax-deductible contributions in support of a wide range of firearm-related public interest activities of the National Rifle Association of America and other organizations that defend and foster the Second Amendment rights of all law-abiding Americans. These activities are designed to promote firearms and hunting safety, to enhance marksmanship skills of those participating in the shooting sports, and to educate the general public about firearms in their historic, technological, and artistic context. Funds granted by The NRA Foundation benefit a variety of constituencies throughout the United States including children, youth, women, individuals with physical disabilities, gun collectors, law enforcement officers, hunters, and competitive shooters.
