Back in late 2013 the NRA ran a promotion if you were sponsored by a Life Member the cost was $300.00 for a Life Membership. IIRC.

I believe that sponsorship still exists but it was $600 the last time I checked for someone.

I'm ready to bump my membership up past life member. I passed on a deal I got a while ago to move to the next level and now regret it. I can't remember what is past life membership. Benefactor or endowment. I actually don't know how to do it, can anyone point me in the right direction?

There is Endowment, Patron and Benefactor I think but dont recall what the sequence is. On sale you can usually get each step up for $300 iirc instead of $1k+. The link I had for 2018 discounted upgrades is expired but I received a phone call this week offering an $300 upgrade so they are still out there. If you dont find a link, maybe try a call to the membership line.

What are the benefits of the various levels other than getting another pin and certificate?  Why does the NRA send a new life membership card every year?  

I have been a life member of both and of the California Rifle and Pistol Association since the late 1980s.  

What difference does it make to the running of the organizations if I do an upgrade, or every few years send in a donation?

You got the sequence correct IB.  It starts with "Life" as the most basic Life membership, followed by the 3 you mention.  I've been Endowment Life for about 15 years (don't remember exactly when) when they had one of those "half price specials".  They keep trying to get me to go higher but having started SoSec. early, I have to be more careful with my money.

Besides, with their "support" of the bump stock ban (and other things), I'd rather send some funds to the Second Amendment Foundation (saf.org) and Gun Owners of America - on general principles.

As a recruiter for the NRA I will say this... It's getting harder and harder to promote memberships under this current leadership backing so many gun control legislation such as bump stock bans and order of protection etc... I actually want a gun rights organization to stand up for my gun rights, not compromise those rights away. If I weren't a life member I would not renew this year. I joined GOA a few weeks ago.

The NRA could start by distancing themselves from crazy Ted Nugent, as long as he is a board member they’ll never get a penny from me.

I let my membership expire and will never go back after the garbage the NRA has caused recently as well as in the past. Hopefully GOA continues to grow and can be our new voice.

Not sure about Endowment and Patron, but when I log in it shows $350 for Benefactor. Still a bargain, though...

But I already have soooo many backpacks lol

I seem to never have enough backpacks or gear bags for some reason!

Thanks. I did make an assumption as my Endowment was $300 and the web page/mailer I received is offering Patron as $300 so I made an erroneous assumption on Benefactor. Edited my post.

Sooooo, I guess you're not a recruiter anymore? That would be kind of hypocritical, no?

I've never seen ISRA offer the "life membership" discount.  If they ever did, I would certainly take it...

Don't recall ISRA life discount either, only some multi year discounts although there is a senior life discount but I am not senior enough yet

I think we should begin gifting membership to people who call the NRA a terrorist organization. $25 for a mental meltdown once their membership card arrives? That's priceless.

Let's sign up a certain mayor or two from the burbs first.

I got an email from ISRA today about upgrading to life at a discount (valid through 9/30 for current members only). The PDF with the upgrade form in attached.

If you didn't get the email and would like me to forward it to you, just shoot me a PM
