Benelli USA Makes Financial Contribution to NSSF for Industry Support

Benelli USA announces it will make a financial contribution of $50,000 to the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) to support their leadership and advocacy in protecting the firearm business and ensuring the industry’s future. Their mission to promote and preserve recreational shooting and hunting has been evident during the COVID-19 outbreak. The NSSF worked tirelessly to ensure the firearm industry was categorized as an essential business.


“The NSSF is one of the most important groups in the firearms and outdoor industry,” said Benelli USA General Manager Tom DeBolt. “It is critically important to not only praise their dedication but support them financially as well. We appreciate the leadership of Joe Bartozzi, Larry Keane and their team who continue to advocate for our industry and lead the NSSF organization during these challenging times.”


This contribution comes on the heels of the donation of $100,000 to NSSF’s #GUNVOTE Voter Education Campaign from Benelli USA this past September.


“In the coming year, our industry will face many new challenges, and the support of firearm industry leaders like Benelli USA will help us meet and overcome those challenges,” said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF president & CEO. “We can’t say thank you enough to Benelli for this generous contribution and for its outstanding leadership in ensuring a strong future for our industry.”


The NSSF is the trade association for the firearms industry and plays a critical role in supporting the shooting sports, gun rights and hunting. With more than 13,000 members, the group annually hosts the industry with SHOT Show to facilitate business and bring together members of the outdoor industry.
