Grants to New Hampshire nonprofits and agencies for programs or projects involving firearms and shooting. Programs may benefit youth, disabled, women, veterans, law enforcement, or the general public. The Foundation will fund programs in training and education, safety, community outreach, historical education, competitive shooting, conservation and hunting, general shooting programs, and range improvement projects.

Grant requests must conform to the Foundation's purposes. These purposes are as follows:

1) To promote, advance, and encourage firearms, the shooting sports, and hunting safety.

2) To educate individuals, including the youth of the United States, with respect to firearms, firearms history, participation in the shooting sports, hunting safety, and marksmanship, as well as with respect to other subjects that are of importance to the well-being of the general public.

3) To conduct research in furtherance of improved firearms safety and marksmanship facilities and techniques.

4) To support activities of the National Rifle Association of America, but only to the extent that such activities are in furtherance of charitable, educational, or scientific purposes within the meaning of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code which includes activities that are charitable, educational, or foster National or International sports competition.

If your organization is not recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) entity, the project or activity for which you seek funding must provide a public benefit equal to or in excess of the amount sought. For example, if you seek funding to conduct a Women on Target event or to support a youth league, both of which are open to the public, the public benefit is clear.

Public benefit may also be shown by qualified groups benefiting from the project or activity. For example, a project or activity that provides a benefit equal to, or in excess of, the amount sought to the Boy Scouts, a school, a local law enforcement agency, a veterans group, a church, or other qualified groups may meet this requirement – a requirement likely easier met when your organization provides free access to such groups, as our applicants generally do.

Similarly, projects or activities that further amateur sports competitions may meet the public benefit requirement.

Projects should take place over one year. Requests must be submitted for consideration each year for that year’s costs.

An applicant may be an incorporated or otherwise state-recognized nonprofit organization, 501(c) entity, or government agency, and must possess a unique Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) issued by the Internal Revenue Service.

Applicants shall not discriminate against any member, person, or other user of its facilities or equipment on the basis of age, race, color, sex, or national origin. Applicants are not required to be members of or have association with the NRA to receive funds under this grant program.

Documentation must demonstrate this public benefit to be eligible for funding.)
