About The CRPA Foundation

Since 2004, The CRPA Foundation (CRPAF) has served freedom-loving Californians by raising funds that support eligible programs supportive of advancing our mission. We believe in the right to choose to own a gun for sport, hunting or self-defense and protection of family. We promote that belief through grants that support the shooting sports, hunting, education, litigation and the Second Amendment.
The CRPAF benefits charitable, educational, scientific and public interest programs and activities that promote and defend the Second Amendment rights of all law-abiding citizens in California. The CRPAF supports the environment for the next generation by securing educational access to natural resources and resource management through the promotion and safeguarding of hunting and conservation in California.
Sponsors of and donors to The CRPA Foundation are essential in the fight to protect and promote the rights of firearm owners in California!
Protecting and defending the individual’s Right to Keep and Bear Arms, both in public and private is our greatest privilege. It all starts with your generous commitment and continued support.

Explore Essential Supported Programs

Funds granted by The CRPA Foundation benefit a wide variety of constituencies throughout California, including youth, women, gun collectors and historians, hunters, and law enforcement.

 

 

Training, Education and Firearm Safety
The CRPA Foundation (CRPAF) funds benefit a range of educational programs and activities that are available to the public regarding safe and responsible firearm use and ownership. Through efforts of The CRPAF, the public is made aware of gun safety programs that are at their disposal that are effective in reducing accidents and violence without infringing on the rights of law-abiding gun owners. The CRPAF encourages more active participation by the general public in organized firearms sportsmanship events and sponsored public events which contribute to public awareness of the proper use of firearms and the spirit of cooperation and discipline that is derived therefrom.

These efforts exist to serve and inform the Second Amendment, hunting and firearms communities on issues that relate to their rights and legal concerns. Through the accessibility of:

  • Educational media promoted by social media platforms and print publications;
  • Research and development of publications that support Second Amendment issues;
  • Hunting and conservation opportunities for youth, veterans and adults;
  • Women’s outdoor fun shoots and personal protection training;
  • Church shield programs to protect congregations;
  • Firearms safety training courses; and
  • Range and retail assistance programs that effectively enhance the understanding of legal California compliance requirements.

The CRPAF effectively promotes and supports educational resources made available to communities across the state.

Hunting and Conservation
The CRPAF promotes access to hunter education and conservation classes and outdoor programs that protect Californian’s hunting rights and preserve California’s natural resources and wildlife for generations to come. The CRPAF focuses largely on ensuring that these educational and recreational opportunities are accessible for California outdoorsmen and women alike, with an emphasis in affording opportunities to youth, women and veterans. These widely supported programs advance participation in hunting, target shooting and safe gun ownership.

Historical Arms Exhibitions
A mission goal of The CRPAF is to educate the public about the historic, technological, and aesthetic significance of firearms. The CRPAF has supported exhibitions and displays of historically significant firearms in the hands of collectors who come to appreciate their historical significance. The historical significance of firearms and their development continues to fascinate and educate those who experience such exhibitions and collections. Historical arms collecting is another crucial facet of our Second Amendment heritage that begs conservation. Collectors preserve a piece of history for generations to come.

Youth Shooting Sports
CRPAF is dedicated to building youth leadership skills through supporting programs that engage them in hunting and outdoor opportunities, understanding the importance of wildlife conservation, appreciating natural resources and preserving hunting heritage. In addition, CRPAF is also dedicated to ensuring that youth have access and opportunity to engage in shooting sports, both competitively and recreationally. Firearms safety is a fundamental building block across all CRPAF supported programs to ensure that access to education regarding safe and responsible firearms ownership and use is available to the public.
Each year, CRPAF sponsors youth hunter education camps throughout the state that take youth through their California Hunter Education course, on to the shotgun range for target practice and out to the fields for their first guided hunt. Following the success of their first hunt, the kids learn how to clean and cook their game. CRPAF also supports competitive youth shooting sports, sponsoring matches by making trophies, ammunition, and safety gear available for the teams and sanctioning matches across the state.
The CRPAF Foundation works hard to make activities available for both new and seasoned youth shooters through training and education that covers the basic firearm safety rules, to how to improve marksmanship and competitive shooting skills.

 

Marksmanship and Range Protection

The CRPAF supports recreational and competitive target shooting programs that engage new shooters in teaching valuable marksmanship skills, foster community growth, and aid and protect shooting ranges. The recreational and competitive matches provide a forum to engage members and the public on firearm safety, gun law politics, and safe, responsible participation in the shooting sports. In order to participate in the shooting sports, people must have access to training opportunities and shooting ranges. Unfortunately, too many ranges in California are being forced to close due to issues that could have been avoided. Accordingly, range operators must be aware of the many threats, and remain knowledge about resources and assistance programs available to proactively address predictable challenges.
The CRPAF funds benefit the CRPA Range Shield Program which serves in helping ranges operate successfully in compliance with California law. The CRPAF supports a team of lawyers, experts, range designers, noise consultants, and environmental consultants standing by to help local ranges. The CRPA Range Shield team is available to consult with your Board of Directors to discuss any issue. Be sure that your range is compliant with federal, state and local laws by scheduling a free shooting range assessment visit. Click here for more information.

 

Civil Rights Litigation
The CRPAF supports litigation that defends and expands legal recognition of the rights protected by the Second Amendment and, supports litigation that seeks to strike down unconstitutional laws that conflict with our charitable purposes. The CRPAF is a named plaintiff in many California gun owners’ cases and supports other named plaintiffs. The CRPAF supports many CRPA cases in the California courts and plans for many more. The CRPAF also supports cases across the country through our amicus brief support program to further support the Second Amendment.

The CRPAF’s work in fighting for constitutional rights of gun owners is essential to our core purpose of education. When laws infringe upon the rights of gun owners to exercise their freedoms, the very mission of The CRPAF is threatened.

“With your help, The CRPAF can support the right cases, with the right lawyers, with the right plaintiffs, at the best time.“ – C.D. Michel, CRPA President

Research, Education, and Publications
Modern day social and digital media campaigns are critical in educating the public and mobilizing the truth about the social value and utility of firearms. The CRPAF funds digital media campaigns including public service announcements focused on firearms education for the public, firearms safety, hunting, conservation and more. The CRPAF also publishes and distributes several educational booklets and brochures on gun laws, gun safety, and other topics of interest to California citizens and gun owners. The Foundation supports pro-2A research and articles in various publications.
