VA – NRA – NRA Slashed Expenses As Membership Dues Fell In 2019; Added 100,000 new members

The National Rifle Association cut salaries and programs in 2019 to keep up with a drop in membership and soaring legal bills. Membership dues to the NRA fell more than $57 million—or 33 percent—between 2018 and 2019, according to a copy of the group’s latest annual report obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. While contributions remained steady, the group was unable to make up the gap in funding from other sources and saw overall revenue fall by about the same amount. In response to the falling revenue, the group cut expenses across the board by more than $73 million—or 17 percent—with legislative programs and public affairs taking the largest hits even. Legal costs rose by 52 percent to more than $33 million. Like many political advocacy groups, the NRA’s membership and fundraising tend to fluctuate based on election years. Membership dues in 2019, however, were also down more than $15 million—or 11 percent—from the previous non-election year of 2017. The group’s expenses also fell about 7 percent compared to 2017. The group still ran a $16 million deficit in 2019 before contributions with donor restrictions are factored in. Amy Hunter, an NRA spokeswoman, said the 2019 annual report does not reflect the current financial state of the NRA. She said the group added 100,000 new members in August alone amid historic gun sales in 2020.  [full article]
