Butler PA, Friends of NRA Dinner/Auction- April 12
I am an NRA life member but did not know about this 501(3)(c) NRA charity, called Friends of the NRA, until last week. It raises money to give away to Boy Scouts and other organizations to teach the next generation about firearms, firearm safety, shooting and the Second Amendment.
Any contributions above and beyond the value of the dinner or items won at auction are tax deductible. Receipts available at the event.
Ever go by Sportsman's Supply there in Butler?
Yes, I bought my first pistol from them.
More Information on Grants
Half the money raised at every Friends of NRA event throughout the country is given back to the state to fund programs and projects within their own area. The other half goes to The NRA Foundation and is used to fund similar projects with a national scope.
The NRA Foundation grants provide essential program funding that ensures the availability of quality training and educational opportunities nationwide. Grants benefit programs such as youth education, law enforcement training, hunter education, conservation, firearms and marksmanship training and safety, and much more.
Listed below are just some of the many programs The NRA Foundation is able to support nation-wide:
Advertising for Businesses via Underwriting this Event
Okay, basically this is how advertising works for you if you choose to do what is called Underwriting. You can donate cash from $25 to $1000, with most donations being about $100. If you donate, you get your business named listed in the program, and there is a tent card with your business name placed on one of the auction items on the tables.
If you are at the banquet, you will get acknowledged.
There are going to be tons of items for silent auction and for raffling off.
If you choose to donate an item like a gun, you will get a slip allowing you to declare the fair market value of the item as a tax deduction. But also you will get the Tent Card at your item and you will be in the program and get acknowledged if you are at the Banquet.
This may be a good way to advertise your business or services to an extremely loyal group of folks... friends of the NRA.
Hey Folks, If you are interested in any of these options, I put my name and number in the first post, but I may not be available during the week before the event over Easter. So I encourage you, if you have questions, to
