Friends of NRA Announces Daniel Defense as Corporate Sponsor

FAIRFAX, Va. – The National Rifle Association is proud to announce Daniel Defense as the Exclusive Guardian Corporate Sponsor of Friends of NRA. Created in 2011, the National Corporate Sponsor program takes Friends of NRA’s support of the shooting sports to a national scale.

“NRA does such a great job supporting our industry, so we want to do anything and everything we can to support it,” said Jordan Hunter, Daniel Defense Director of Marketing. “We’re always looking for creative ways to do that, and Friends of NRA has been really great about providing those opportunities.”

Friends of NRA is a grassroots fund-raising program that fosters community involvement to organize and, with help from NRA field staff, plan community events for firearms enthusiasts. All net proceeds from Friends of NRA events are allocated to The NRA Foundation, the leading charitable organization in support of the shooting sports. NRA Foundation grants provide equipment, training materials, range improvements, and more to qualified local, state, and national programs.

“We are grateful to have such generous support from Daniel Defense, a leader in support of the firearms community,” said Director of Volunteer Fundraising Sarah Engeset. “Their commitment as Friends of NRA National Guardian Sponsor has helped raise funds for The NRA Foundation and shooting sports programs across the country.”
