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.

Both the NRA and ISRA do these special offers periodically.

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.
