Your Guide to Giving

When you make the decision to become a Ring of Freedom member, how you give and where you give is completely up to you. There are a number of programs that you can earmark your gift to, and several different ways in which you can donate. Simply select the one that's right for you.

Is a strategic or planned gift right for you? Perhaps you'd rather give a gift of firearms or real estate? Or maybe you'd prefer to take advantage of one of the many workplace giving programs? The choice is all yours—you donate as you best see fit to do so.

Your generous gift can help support one of the vast range of programs and services associated with the shooting sports, or it can go toward political advocacy, media outreach, training and developing America's next generation or a number of other programs.


“Without the right to keep and bear arms we wouldn’t have free speech, a free press, a constitutional government, our American way of life. The Second Amendment protects all our basic individual freedoms.”

—John & Kathi Schumann,  Ring of Freedom Members

“I like being a part of a democracy. I like being free. I like being able to vote without threat. And I don’t want any of that compromised. And I feel the NRA and the Ring of Freedom and many of their other programs safeguard that for me now and I want to help safeguard it for other generations.”

—Janet Nyce,  Ring of Freedom Member

“We're selling the Bill of Rights and the Bill of Rights can't be sold. You can't give up one to protect another, you have to have them all.”

—John A. "Andy" Anderson,  Ring of Freedom Member

“If you’re able to support a cause you believe in—whether it’s with your talent, your time or your money—you ought to do so, and you ought to be recognized.”

—Ron & Ann Schmeits,  Ring of Freedom Members

“The efforts of the NRA are critical to the future of the country.”

—James Debney,  Ring of Freedom Member

“NRA is the group that's going to protect our freedoms. Without them, we'd lose everything.”

—Larry & Brenda Potterfield,  Golden Ring of Freedom Founding Members
