The Ring of Freedom has officers across America that meet with donors to provide assistance and information on giving to the NRA. The local representatives can help get you started.
“Every day, we collect money and support from our volunteers and our members to fund the National Rifle Association today, and our mission really is to be able to continue to fund those programs into the future.”
Director of Strategic Giving
“A lot of the donors that call in here to the National Rifle Association have a dream of changing the future—have a dream of creating a legacy for themselves.”
—Brooke A. Berthelsen,
Asst. Dir. of Planned Giving
“You can have the greatest mission, you can have the greatest staff people, you can have it all. But if you do not have the financial resources to move it forward, to make it effective and to have a really desirable impact, it’s a tough road.”
Executive Director of The NRA Foundation
“Our dedicated staff and I are all about making sure millions and millions of good Americans who shoot keep their right to lawfully exercise their Second Amendment freedom.”
Executive Director of the Ring of Freedom
“One of the most popular ways for people to contribute to the NRA is through estate planning. Charitable giving is important to many people as they plan for the future beyond their own years. It’s an easy, yet important, way for anyone—no matter how limited or vast their resources—to stipulate a contribution to the NRA and leave a legacy to an organization they love.”
Director of Planned Giving
“The Second Amendment is critical to maintaining our freedoms. What we do now is really going to help determine our freedoms—not just for ourselves but for future generations.”
