Friends of NRA
Friends of NRA is the grassroots fund-raising program of the National Rifle Association. The program fosters community involvement, raises money, and gives 100 percent of the net proceeds to qualified local, state, and national programs. Working with the NRA’s field staff, Friends of NRA is run by local volunteers at the chapter level who organize committees and plan events in their communities. Monies raised at these events go to The NRA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
Big Timber Rifle and Pistol Club has been the recipient of several Friends of NRA grants for range projects and improvements. The local chapter of Friends of NRA is run by Sam DuVall, who works tirelessly to put on an annual banquet and auction, typically the first Saturday in August. Sam also participates in many local events and trade shows by leasing and manning booth space to get out the NRA message and raise funds through raffles.
