NRA has grants for shooting programs

FAIRFAX, Va. — The NRA Foundation is accepting applications for the 2014 grant cycle. NRA Foundation grants assist shooting sports-related programs with developing, expanding, and enhancing educational curricula to deliver valuable services to millions of Americans.

“Nonprofit organizations involved in firearm-related activities or defense of the Second Amendment can be considered for grant awards,” said Ruthann Sprague, grant manager.

“We are proud to support organizations and programs that ensure our shooting and hunting heritage.”

Applicants begin with an easy five question eligibility quiz that will determine which type of grant will best suit their needs.

Bona fide federal, state or local law enforcement agencies, accredited schools and qualified, nonprofit organizations including Boy Scout troops and 4-H groups benefit from NRA Foundation funding.
